Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: The New Resilience

Resilience is dead. The word has been overused. Some may say the word is no longer resilient. We broke it. It’s unfortunate because it was a really good word.

The Pottsvile team of I Quinn, D Watterson, H Radisich and M Flesser won the Ocean Shores Gala Day.

Eighty ladies from across the Tweed Byron district met for Ocean Shores Women Bowlers Gala Day on July 12.

After a cool start to the day the temperature soared and made it feel like a summer day for the competitors, who each played two games of 13 ends, and were treated to a delicious lunch provided by Dolphin Cove Restaurant.

First round winners were the Kingscliff team of S Fowler, J Greenbank, G Dean, and M James, while round two winners were also a Kingscliff team of A Wonka, M Drewett, D James, and J Monopoli.

Overall runners-up were also from Kingscliff, a team consisting of J White, S Chancillier, L Poole, and J Munn.

But the overall winners for the day were from Pottsville and included: I Quinn, D Watterson, H Radisich, and M Flesser.
