Ocean Shores Grade 4 Pennant Winners: (back row L–R) Barbara Sprengel, JudyWilliams, Lyn McGowran, JM Quirke, Johnnie Busch, Glenys Johnston (front row) Janine Howell, Margaret Enright.

Ocean Shores has won the grade four Tweed Byron Women’s Bowls Pennant and will contest the regional playoffs in May.

Kingscliff finished in second place.

‘Our little club, with limited membership, formed a successful team along with our reserves of Sam Curtis, Dot Gardiner and Marg Wilkes and won the first nine rounds in the competition,’ Ocean Shores secretary Janine Howell said.

‘We did not have it all our own way going down to Cabarita in the last game with minimal margins on both rinks. 

‘Overall we managed to obtain 40 points to win the flag for our club. 

‘We are now off to Yamba to play in the Regional Pennants playoffs in May,’ she said.
