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.

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.”
