Thrilling climax to game

A MIXTURE of lawn bowlers from Gladstone, Boyne-Tannum and Miriam Vale played off in a thrilling, but fun charity match yesterday.

With monies raised toward the Gladstone Hospital ladies auxiliary, the match ended with a 13-12 result.

The team of Barbara Redshaw, Janey Domoney, Thelma O'Brien and Shell Bolt edged out Roz Newberry, Glenda Gunton, Roy Young and Sonia Drinkwater.

Gladstone ladies president Tina Wallace said it was a great day with $600 of funds raised.

It wasn't all the ladies who shared in the spotlight.

"We had some men that included Shane Cummings who is the men's president and it was good because we kicked his butt," Wallace laughed.

The charity concept has been running for almost 30 years and former president Ellie Edwards said it is something that works.

"Every year we have a new charity and in 2015 it was for the CES and before that the Life Savers, raising for breast cancer research," Edwards said.

Meanwhile competition takes to a more serious attitude when the intra club champion pairs takes centre stage at the bowls club from 9am on Wednesday, April 30.
