Brunswick Heads Women bowlers claim District open fours pennant

Never too young to learn: Bowler Rosa Kinnear is showing Lani Kennedy (Mullumbimby) and Dianne Burke (Brunswick Heads) how a bowl works.

Brunswick Heads Women‘s Bowling Club has won the Tweed Byron District Open Fours Championship playing at home last week.

The winning team included Sherril Pearce (lead), Kerry Dexter (second), Jenny Lofts (third) and Blossom McCormick (skip).

‘We defeated Byron Bay in the first round, then into the semifinal defeating another Byron Bay team, then into the final defeating Condong, which was a very exciting close game,’ publicity officer Kerry said.

‘This is the second year running that we have won the Open Fours. We are now off to compete in the zone carnival in a couple of months’ time at Cabarita,’ she said.

Membership drive

The club is also keen to attract new bowlers to the club after losing members to moving away and ill health.

The club has reduced its membership fees from  $75 to $20 for full membership.

‘People of all ages play. Our Commonwealth Games women gold medallists are aged 27 and 30,’ Kerry said.

The women meet on Tuesday mornings at 9.30am.

Call: Kerry 0497 076 522, Sherril 6685 1001 or Joy 6684 1478.

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.”
