Brunswick Heads women challenge the best in local pennants competition

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.

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.”
