The Glass House Junior Carnival will be held on Monday 27 and Tuesday 28th June, which is the first week of school holidays.

The format was originally a 3 Bowl Pairs event, but many juniors missed out in participating, so we converted the event to a 2 Bowl Triples. Every nominated team was contacted by me and asked to find another player, so we will get another 16 juniors out on the green playing bowls, which was the catalyst for converting to triples, with a total of 48 competitors. The event is full (we are only a one green club) but expect hundreds of families and spectators to attend as was the case with our December 2021 Carnival.

At present, we have $5,000 in allocated prize money but will seek extra sponsorship to try and boost this amount. Ten of the 16 nominated teams will win prize money. The format works beautifully, as with the December 2021 Carnival, on the second day there were 4 teams who had not won a game but still had the opportunity (and did) to earn prize money. Last year’s winners were:- Brodie Carter – Lead – Pialba Bowls Club and Wyatt Martin – Skip – Gayndah Bowls Club.

The event will be live streamed, so if you can’t make it in person, then you can watch the livestream over the two days.
