There has been very little social play over the last week due mainly to pennants and players on holiday. No results were available.
This week has been an up and down one for our men’s pennants teams.

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.
