Tweed Byron District Bowls Association division four champions – Mullumbimby.

Byron Bay Bowling Club life member Jim Clark teamed with Bulla Burton to win the Zone One Senior Pairs at the Yamba Bowling Club.

The zone win is a strong follow up to their recent District Title win. 

The pair had a convincing win in Sunday’s final and are now into the top sixteen of the state competition to be held at Ettalong Bowling Club in September this year.

Jim has been the Byron club coach for a long time and is still the Club Byron administration manager and admits to being one of the more age-experienced playing around the Club.

Bulla is having a great year on the greens with the District Singles Title under his belt as well as this Pairs. Congratulations to them. 

Both are also members of our District Pennants grade three side that wrapped up the 2018 Title with a big win over Condong on Saturday at our home green.

To make the weekend all the more successful, the grade-seven pennant side qualified for the play-off against Cudgen after finishing the sectional play in equal first place.

The presentation of the 2017 Awards took place on Saturday evening.

The Club Champion Bowler for 2017 was Gavin McPhail, who won the Club Open Singles and teamed up with Sam Skehan to win the Open Pairs. 

The Triples went to John Nasser, Toby Schott and Bulla while the Fours was won by Glen Ward, Craig Johnson, Mark Brown and Paul Clark.

The Minor Singles was won by Toby Schott and the Mixed Pairs by Pat Bigg and Greg Daniels.  

Mullum win 

The Mullumbimby division five Pennant team travelled to Ocean Shores and were well beaten by the home side to the tune of 79–39.

The division four side fared much better and defeated Cabarita at home 75–61. 

The side remains undefeated with one round to play, and are once again the winners of the District division four competition.
