Goosies $10,000 draws a crowd
By Tony Allsop
The annual initial “CMR Goosies 10,000” bowls competition at North Mackay Bowls Club (Goosies) was played over the weekend of November 6-7, preceded by an excellent Calcutta on the Friday night.
This very popular tournament is a Tier 4 event and teams came from as far away as the Gold Coast and Townsville, with some of Queensland’s top players taking part. All 16 rinks were filled, with a couple of teams on standby, all happy with the prize money of $10,000 on offer.
Winners were the Bowen team of Robyn Stitt, M. Wilson, M. Drummond and A. Rolfe. In second place was the team of Lexie Foot, Cooper Whitestyle, Paul Foot and Steve Mau while third place was filled by Carol Savage, Trevor Trenberk, C. Burns and Barry Brown.
Early interest has already been shown for this event for next year. Moves are afoot to avoid this tournament clashing with the State Pennant finals in future.
