Those who are involved in any form of an outdoor sport will quickly admit that they prefer fine and sunny weather while competing and when the Bongaree Bowls Club held their annual Maytime Fours fun day recently, the weather was just perfect. Bongaree Bowls Club Head Selector Brenda Hutchinson explained that the Maytime Fours was once a two-day event with a concert on the first night.

‘It was reduced to one day some years ago but that certainly had no effect on its popularity,’ said Brenda. ‘Competitors this year are from clubs across the region including Kilcoy, Caboolture Lakes, Narangba and Woodford as well as the Solander Lake and Bribie Island clubs,’ she added. Two games were played on the day with the first round being won by the team from Kilcoy and a combined Bribie Island and Bongaree team taking out the second game.

Overall winners on the day were a team from the Bribie Island Club which was skipped by Isobel McLaren. Prizes for the competition were made possible through the generous sponsorship of HealthSAVE Pharmacy, Faye Pendreigh and Pat White. Bongaree Bowls Club members are now busy preparing for the club’s annual Tombola which will be held at the Toorbul Street clubhouse on June 23rd.

This very popular event has earned a great reputation over the years for its hundreds of all brand new prize items that are up for grabs during the two-hour duration. Tickets are sold at the very reasonable price of four for two dollars and all tickets remain in the draw for the whole afternoon. Brenda told me that there is only room in the building for one hundred participants so people should plan to arrive well before the 1 pm start.
