Boyne Tannum defeat 'Mexicans'

THE Boyne Tannum Bowls Club won their annual bout of bowls against the "Mexicans" by 15 on Sunday, July 22.

An enjoyable day was held when the visitors, affectionately dubbed "The Mexicans" from New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, played against the Boyne Tannum Bowls Club to raise funds for Meals on Wheels.

Although it was a social event, on the green competition was taken seriously by the participants with the prestigious perpetual trophy and bragging rights at stake.

One of the prizes for the best visitor's performance on the green went to the team skippered by Peter Kaczynski and the prize for the local's performance went to the team skippered by Bill Sophias.

The visitors return year after year, staying at caravan parks, enjoying the Queensland winter weather and the hospitality at the Boyne Island Bowling Club green.

This year there were two rounds of bowls played and $600 was raised for Meals on Wheels.

The Mexicans were pleased to support the annual charity day for Boyne Tannum Meals on Wheels, appreciating the wonderful work done by all those involved with Meals on Wheels not only in Queensland, but in their respective home states also.

Boyne Tannum Bowls Club secretary Bob Lees said that the day was enjoyed by all, with fine weather and a nice meal after the game.

Meals on Wheels are currently looking for more cooks and kitchen helpers.

There are also a few delivery spots that need to be filled.

Anyone who would like to know more about trying our meals, or volunteering please phone Carolyn on 49750356.
