Monto’s open pairs
By Bronwyn Torrens
Monto Bowls Club recently held its annual Three Moon Creek $5,000 Open Pairs carnival with a full house of 32 teams over its two greens. Event Coordinator Garry Price was very pleased after the carnival field was filled after just one week. Garry thanked all teams for their support of the Monto club.
A late call up for Cameron McCrohon, Gladstone and local Shane Rideout paid dividends when they cruised through their games to come up five from five and 54.5 points, narrowly beating brother Shane McCrohon, Biloela and Tony Legio, Gladstone who took out the second place prize.
Five teams ended the weekend with five from five wins, so it came down to ends won overall. The grass greens were running well and rain fell only after the end of play.
Prizes were paid down to eighth place and two lucky bonus envelopes were awarded for those teams who fell outside of the winners circle.
Club Chairman James Sinclair thanked everyone who participated and all of the local volunteers who put in the effort to host another great carnival. “It was a pleasure to have all of our visitors in town for the weekend, let’s do it again soon,” he said.
