Byron Bay Bowling Club’s entry into the District Triples Championship won all four of their games in the competition, including the semifinal and final last Sunday at Pottsville.

Jim Clark, Dick de Witt and Bulla Burton won the first game three weeks ago, defeating Ocean Shores. They went on to beat Kingscliff to make it into the finals.

In the semifinal the team had a comfortable win over Condong, but then played in a tense final versing the home side, Pottsville.

Scores were level at the 23rd end but then each member of the Byron team drew a couple of shots to take an unassailable lead and the 2020 title.
