Lyn and Margaret snare pairs at Brunswick Heads

Open pairs champions Lyn Proudlock (L) and Margaret Darby at the Bowling Club.

Lyn Proudlock and Margaret Darby have claimed the open pairs championship at the Brunswick Heads Womens Bowling Club after beating Kerry Dexter and Lorraine McCormick 19–17 in the final.

It was an extremely close game as Margaret and Lyn were leading by four on the last end, but Kerry and Lorraine were also holding four shots.

It looked like a draw that would force a deciding end until Lyn used her last bowl to take out two of the scoring bowls giving her team a two-shot win.

The win gave Lyn her first championship at the Club.

In a semifinal for the Club’s triples championships Rosa Kinnear, Kerry Dexter and Lorraine beat Jenny Andrew, Marcia Crichton and Lyn Proudlock 22–15.

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.”
