Bushman’s Bakery ‘Under the Shed’ at Goosies
By Tony Allsop
Over the weekend of February 19-20, we played our major event of the year, The Bushman’s Bakery ‘Under The Shed’.
This event has $12,000 in prize money and is a tier three event, giving winning players higher points towards Bowls Australia rankings.
It was a very popular weekend, with the full 32 teams of four people participating after selling out within two weeks of opening nominations, with a reserve list of five teams.
Teams entered from as far away as Innisfail in the north to the Gold Coast south, west to Biloela and included teams from Brisbane, Townsville, Bundaberg, Yeppoon and, of course, the Mackay district.
The Friday evening Calcutta proved very popular and was drawn just before the major presentation.
Top prize went to sponsor, Peter Grant’s team, showing that what goes around indeed does come around.
The overall winner was the Bowen team of Allan Rolf, Mark Drummond, Margaret Wilson and Robyn Stitt, who also won CMR Goosies $10,000 last year.
Second came the team of Wayne Hadley, Jason Borg, Don and David Peet, and in third place was Rob Spence, Paul Foot, David Blackburn and Steven Mau.
