After a successful and enjoyable trip to Yarraman and Nanango Bowls Clubs in 2020, Cleveland Bowls Club continued with Episode 2 of Bus to the Bush, venturing to The Summit Bowls Club, just east of Stanthorpe. With 44 Cleveland bowlers bowling against 34 from The Summit and District, it was the best turnout of bowlers that The Summit has had in recent years with both of the greens full. We were served a scrumptious barbeque lunch, enjoyed cold drinks and exchanged stories. It was country hospitality at its best and while it was difficult to leave our newly made friends, we had other places to be.

We checked into our motels and met up again at O’Mara’s pub in Stanthorpe for more drinks and dinner. After breakfast the next morning, we travelled to Killarney for a game on the way home. The green was a bit of a challenge, however, the hospitality and lunch were, again, first class. We arrived back at our club around 5pm, very tired but very happy after an enjoyable two days in the country.
