Goosies bowls results 29th August
The last of North Mackay Bowls Club championships were played on Sunday with the mixed pairs final between John Kennell and Lorraine Silman who played Dave McKendry and Daphne Offield. The spectators were treated to some good bowls played by both teams, but probably the difference was in Lorraine’s drives, which often took shot from Dave and Daphne. Lorraine and John won by 28-12. Lorraine and Bert Hobbs were runners up last year, but this year Lorraine and John have won the title.
It is good to see the next generation of bowlers being coached by head coach, Felix Purcell, and Ian Beveridge through the school’s programme at Goosies. Both boys and girls appeared to take a keen interest. The club has several up and coming new and younger players who will be putting their name down for pennants and other club competitions next year, which is very good for both our club and bowls in general.

Goosies Bowls News 15th Aug.
Last Sunday there were two Goosies club championship titles decided.
First was the final of the Senior (over 60) Men’s Singles. This was won by Tony Allsop who played Bill McCurry. The game was exciting, as several times when Tony was holding shots, Bill took out the lead bowl with an up shot. Tony kept up the pressure however, finally winning by 25-11.
The other title was the club Mixed Fours. The competing teams were Kees Struik, John Priest, Val DePinto and Marie Bragg against Ron Bowers, Dave McKendry, Lorna Bowers and Chrissy Hall. This was also a good game. In the end, Kees Struik’s team was too good for Ron Bowers’, winning by 26-9.
These games were the only ones played on Sunday, and were on alternating greens, so the spectators could keep an eye on both. John Chester-Master was the umpire, as well as marker for the Allsop/McCurry game. Thank you, John: all the time you spend at the club is very much appreciated.

Goosies bowls report 1st August
Last Saturday we held a send- off for well- known bowling member, Ken Wedel who is going to reside in Emu Park. Ken and Pat are going to live near their daughter who has a large property there. Ken will still play bowls, but at this stage is not sure if he will join Emu Park or Yeppoon club.
Ken started off the St. Lawrence club and was their president for several years. When he came to North Mackay Bowls club in 2004, he became a member of the committee. He has won several championships, the latest being the two bowl triples club championships this year.
The day was a great success with 10 rinks filled. In first place was a triple of Ron Bowers, Albert Graves and Neil Blucher, with Vic Gaudion and Peter Horsburgh filling second place. Ken shouted everyone drinks at the end of the day.
