Mullumbimby Bowling Club have continued on their winning way by taking out the District Open Fours played at Bangalow last Sunday.

Playing Ocean Shores in the final, the Mullumbimby side got off to a great start and led 8–1 on the fifth end. Ocean Shores clawed their way back however, and by the thirteenth end the scores were tied at 10–10 in a high quality match.

The Mullumbimby side of Paul Gray, Trent Foreman, Ben Leeson and Richie Northcott surged again and by the last end they held a three shot lead.

The final end saw Mullumbimby play great bowls to cover every possible opening, and go on to take the title by 20–15.
