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.
