Andrew Montgomery and Troy Makin from Ocean Shores Bowling Club were crowned Tweed Byron open pairs champions after beating Condong in the regional final played last weekend.

Andrew and Troy won the pairs game 30–7.

Troy played for last year’s NSW country side but this was the first time he had partnered with Andrew, according to club representative Lee Roberts.

‘They combined really well, and played great bowls together,’ he said.

The final was delayed for several weeks owing to the flooding and was played at the Seahorse Arena at the Ocean Shores Country Club.

The successful pair will take on other regional champions vying for the right to represent the zone in a state-wide comp later this year.

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
