Friday fun at Goosies
By Tony Allsop
Friday is big money day at North Mackay Bowls Club, now known as Goosies. The competition is a mixed pairs three bowl event, with first prize of $150 for winners, then down the line. A card is drawn from the field for one team member to have a crack at the ‘Kitty Toucher’ where the mat is placed at one end and the jack placed on the T at the other end.
The prize money is $500, and the kitty and bowl must remain in play and not in the ditch. If the player does touch the kitty, then his partner gets a chance to also win another $500.
This happened last weekend when for the first time in our club’s history of this day, two players both touched the kitty, with both bowls just moving the kitty a few inches: the perfect draw shots.
Robby Evans and Peter Horsburgh, also won the top scoring card for another $150.
