Major pairs decided at Mullumbimby

Leigh Rickert and Richie Northcott were well deserving 2018 major pairs champions at Mullum.

Leigh Rickert and Richie Northcott have taken out the Mullumbimby Bowling Club’s 2018 major pairs with a 25–16 win over Ross Graham and Ben Leeson.

The game was a nip-and- tuck affair up until the 16th end with tight heads and only one or two shots separating the teams.

The 17th end, however, saw Rickert and Northcott claim six shots and they went on to take the 2018 title by nine shots in an excellent display of bowling.

In the pairs played on March 3, Geoff Flick and Larry Henry defeated Michael Burke and Sharon Thomas 25–14; while in the triples Mike Nicholls, Brett Luker and Jeff Morgan beat Clint Marsh, Terry Fenwick and Jean-Claude Canabou 30–14.

The first round of the 2018 Coopers Brewing Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club Autumn Corporate Bowls was played on the preceding Friday  night in ideal conditions.

In division one KRP is the early leader on 22; followed by Dunno 19.5; Toads At Leisure and Brett Donnelly Plastering 18; In Line Carpentry and Ken Ryan Plastering 15; Can’t Nail Us Down 12.5; Team Sassy and Mr Plug 9.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

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.”
