Goosies Bowls report week ending 2nd May
Pennants are commencing very soon, and the draw for all divisions is up on the nominations board. If you are wanting to play, please make sure your name and dates you are not available are on the nomination list, as the selectors are about to choose the teams to represent North Mackay.
It was very pleasing to see a good field last Thursday. There were players on both greens so the new format seems very popular. After a four-week trial, I understand the board will be looking at starting Tuesdays again, but also under a different format. Any suggestions to Ian Beveridge would be appreciated. There was also a good field of players on Friday and Saturday, although with pennants starting shortly Saturday numbers will drop back.
There was the usual large field of players on Monday, resulting in a win for J. Haber and R. Vigliante. Wednesday Ladies day was won by Marie Duck, Bev Woodward and Cicely Lee. Runners up was the team of Isla Comelli, Jan Little and Netty Thomsen.
There were no results available for Thursday or Friday, although we do know that Bob Kinnane won the Kitty Toucher draw, but missed, so the jackpot increases next week.
Saturday men’s day resulted in a win for Greg McLean and David Evans with Ian McDonald and Mick Mackenzie coming a close second.

WINNERS ARE GRINNERS AT GOOSIES
Goosies would like to acknowledge a very special achievement of two of our long-standing members, Ron and Lorna Bowers.
Ron and Lorna are to be congratulated for each winning the Open Singles for 2020.This marks the first time that North Mackay Bowls Club has seen a husband and wife both win the Men’s and Women’s A-Grade in the same year!
Our humble members didn’t want a fuss made but we think this deserves a big shout-out. Ron and Lorna have been members for close on 30 years with Ron serving on the NMBC Committee for several of those years. The lovely Lorna has contributed much during her time with the NMLBC and is currently one of the ladies’ selectors.
To cap off a successful year, it also just happens to be Ron and Lorna’s Golden Wedding Anniversary this year! Congratulations Ron and Lorna, a well-deserved win and we wish you many more happy years bowling through life together.
Goosies is thrilled to announce the winner of the prestigious Dr William Shield, held last weekend, is our very own
North Mackay Bowls Club!!!
City Club were worthy rivals in the final but NMBC bowled their way to victory with their precision and skill and, in fact, our boys did not drop a game over the entire weekend!
The team would like to acknowledge the excellent skills of the Selectors which surely contributed to this notable success.
Congratulations North Mackay Bowls Club you have done us proud!
