Bowlers shine in tournament
BOWLERS from Mackay, Rockhampton and Gladstone converged on Mackay Leisure Centre over the weekend to participate in the Central Queensland Intercity Tournament.
Sixteen bowlers from Gladstone locked horns with the competition, and the Gladstone combination found itself sitting on top of the competition by the end of the weekend.
Gladstone’s bowlers shone on lanes they were most unaccustomed to, with John Kennedy shooting a high game of 236 and Mark Taylor a 248 handicapped game.
With a glimpse of the future of Gladstone bowling, Nicole Winning showed the seasoned bowlers how it’s done, shooting the high series with handicap of 1611 across eight games.
“I didn’t do too badly, and made my average for most of the games so I’m pretty pleased with that,” she said.
Gladstone Tenpin Bowl manager Andrew Carswell is proud of the team’s efforts, in particular Winning’s win.
“She’s been bowling here for about five years now and we’ve watched as she’s developed into a top representative bowler,” Carswell said.
Mr Carswell also hopes the achievements of the Gladstone bowlers, especially Winning’s, may entice more young people to take up the sport of tenpin bowling.
Gladstone lead by 10 points going into the last round of competition. The final round will be held at Gladstone Tenpin Bowl on Saturday and Sunday, October 30-3.
