Last Thursday’s Council meeting was an example of when a good idea gets kiboshed because the people proposing the idea are considered crazy conspiracy theorists.

Brunswick Heads bowlers celebrated their second place in the District Pennants competition with a conga line: (L–R) Bev Gawned, Kerry Dexter, Jenny Meinel, Judy Wright, Bev Rose (umpire/manager), Jenny Lofts, Blossom McCormick, Sherril Pearce and Ilona Pettendy.

After a very close Tweed Byron District Pennants third-grade competition, Brunswick Heads have come in runners-up behind Kingscliff.

The five-club competition was decided in the last round when Brunswick Heads came home just 3.5 points below Kingscliff, who ended on 28.

Condong came in third followed by Byron Bay and Pottsville.

This is the fourth year in a row that Brunswick Heads have been runners-up.

Open fours

The Brunswick Heads Championships have also commenced with the Open fours final played on April 10.

Rosa Kinnear, Kerry Dexter, Jenny Lofts and Blossom McCormick defeated Ilona Pettendy, Bev Gawned, Jenny Meinel and Judy Wright 21–13.
