by admin on October 7, 2018

The teams for the Inaugural North versus South Challenge in Townsville (November, 3-4) have been annouced. Bowls Queensland has announced the teams set to contend the highly anticipated Inaugural QLD North versus South Challenge which will be held at the Suburban Bowls Club in Townsville on November 3 & 4.

The format for this event will be Men’s and Women’s teams, 12 players per team, 3 rinks of fours, 3 tests of 21 ends, 2 games Saturday and 1 game Sunday.

The division of north and south was worked out by drawing a line horizontally across Queensland leaving half the clubs north of the line and half the clubs south of the line. 
This line passed through the Sunshine Coast, Condamine and Maranoa/Warrego Districts, it was decided to drop all Sunshine Coast into the South and move Condamine and Warrego into the North.
Selectors were advised to select teams from names nominated by Districts and to include a mix of State and non-State representatives.

Teams were selected from the following Districts:
NORTH: Tropical Far North QLD, North West QLD, North QLD, Mackay, Leichhardt, Central QLD, Port Curtis, Bundaberg, Burnett, Fraser Coast (Wide Bay/Gympie), Condamine and Maranoa/Warrego.  

SOUTH: Sunshine Coast, Caboolture, Brisbane North, Brisbane, Gateway, Cunningham, Downs, Southern Downs and Gold Coast.

This event will be sponsored by Damien McGee’s company Oz E Cool (Electrical, Refrigeration, Air Conditioning Domestic, Commercial & Industrial). 
McGee also regularly sponsors the North West Men’s District Sides Team and has also bought a franchise in the new Ultimate Bowls Championship competition starting next year, known as the North QLD Roos.
