Bowlers took advantage of things starting to move back to normal and travelled from near and far to socialise and show their expertise at the Dalby Men’s Carnival held on May 26-28.

The pairs event had 26 teams battling to be at the top of the ladder. Three games were played over the day and the final winners were Read Burgess and Ben McLovin from Broadbeach and Musgrave Hill.

The fours were contested over that weekend with five games played and fierce rivalry between the 22 teams entered. Laidley, who are regulars at this event, won the fours pot of gold at the end. Well done. North Toowoomba was second with the Slatters Brothers team coming in third. Fourth place was taken by Dave Adamson, Nathan Lee, Read Burgess and Ben McLovin.

We have missed seeing bowlers from Buderim, Roma, Brisbane and the Gold and Sunshine Coasts over the past year, but they were all there this year and we made new friends and caught up with previous friends. As per usual, if you did not have a win with the games there were three days of raffles to vie for at the end of each day.

Thank you to the organisers, the helpers in the kitchen and the bar staff.
