Triples Carnival at Meandarra

by jgrey

The last weekend in February saw Meandarra Bowls Club host their first Triples Carnival. Teams travelled from as far as the Sunshine Coast to compete at our small town’s carnival. The much-needed rain fell at a very opportune time during the week before the competition. The green was full of enthusiastic bowlers who were only outnumbered by the flies!

Five rounds were played over two days with the winning teams only decided during the final round.

Congratulations to the following winners:

  • Winning team from Buderim: Richard Meacle, Geoff Brown, Ross Brown
  • Runner Up team from Tara: Matthew Prain, John Smith, Michael Llewellyn
  • Third place went to local Meandarra team: Bob Perrin, Mark Murphy, Wayne Perrin

A huge thank you must be given to the members of our club. The food for the weekend was delicious and there was plenty of it, the beer was cold and the green and grounds were excellent for our recent drought conditions. The Meandarra Bowls Club is run solely by volunteers and the time that everyone contributed to the weekend was greatly appreciated by all.

Funds raised from the carnival will go towards the upgrade of our kitchen facilities.

Next up is our Open Fours Carnival in October.
