Mount Isa – Zone 6 playoffs at Leichhardt Services Club
By Lesley Bates
Every three years, clubs from the North Queensland and Tropical Far North Districts are welcomed to the North West District for the champion of champions playoffs for Zone 6. Players arrived by train, car and plane to contest and were shown true country hospitality by the host club and locals.
- Pairs: Mark Edwards and Gary Costigan from Thuringowa City won and the South Johnstone team of Kevin Foord and Kevin Deegan were the runners up.
- Mixed Pairs: North West’s Mount Isa (Island) Club members Bev Peters & Peter Baker proved too strong for Sean Anderson (Ando Jnr) from Cutheringa who paired with Wangaratta’s Penny Warren and were defeated on the last end.
- Singles: Gordonvale’s Nick Twining won with Mark Edwards from Thuringowa City as the runner up.
- South Townsville Bowls Club won the pennants title from Mount Isa.
- Fours: Mount Isa (Island) Club defeated Jubilee. Congratulations to all players from the three districts who competed and to the winners we wish you the best of luck for pairs and the pennants finals which are still to be played. Thank you to Leichhardt Services for preparing their excellent grass green which was a challenge to many of the players who have been accustomed to carpet. The catering and service was excellent and thanks for hosting this great event.
