Fourteen teams travelled from Biloela, Mt Larcom, Calliope, Gladstone and Alumina to compete against the home club.

Boyne/Tannum spokesperson Dianne Schelbach said it was beautiful sunny day and even though it was a serious match there was lots of laughter.

First place went to the team of K Hunt, J Crosisca, I Baxter and S Barlow, of Alumina, and won $200 for their efforts, while second was awarded to E Kingston, K Locke, D Atfield and C Daly, of Biloela, with a $100 prize.

Third was the combination of M Smith, K Thomas, K Kite and B Blackford, of Boyne/Tannum, scoring $80 for their team, while fourth was taken out by F Parker, E Laffin, J Hunt and L Kuipers, also of Boyne/Tannum, winning $40.

The carnival comprised of three rounds of 16 ends, taking one and three quarter hours each round. It was specifically designed to give all level of bowlers a chance to compete. Usually only masters can compete.

Afternoon and morning teas were enjoyed by all.
