Crowd-pleasing Carnival for Clermont
By Cathy Storer/Wilson
The Blair Athol Clermont Bowls Club recently held its annual carnival with more than 70 players coming from Mackay, Emerald, Townsville and Brisbane. The winners on the day was Emerald second was Mackay. All players showed good sportsmanship in the five games played. The colours on the green certainly attracted attention from locals in Clermont, with our small town being a little buzz of activity during the weekend of the event.
The bowls club solely runs on volunteer help so it was “all hands on deck” to make it a great success. Thank you to our ladies for the catering and the men and women for working the bar as well as organising and moving the games along. Thank you to the Isaac Regional Council, Leo Hotel Motel and Glencore for their sponsorship. Without this, our carnival would not happen and the funds raised during the weekend keeps this little club going. A big congratulations to the green keeper for the hard work put in on our grass green. Thanks Eddie Storer and your crew for the fabulous playing surface, which was evidenced with all the great comments made by the competitors.
The success of this carnival has provided much needed funds for improvements. Thank you for all who came and we know we will see your smiling faces back next year and hopefully some new ones!
