MCKENZIE PARK – NERANG PAIRS
By David Baker
McKenzie Park-Nerang Bowls Club hosted another successful Easter pairs event on April 3-4. From the field of 28, filled from clubs across Queensland, it was a Gold Coast combination (Broadbeach and McKenzie Park) that took home the bacon.
This annual event sees all teams play four games of 12 ends on Saturday – the results of which determine the division they are allocated on Sunday (three games of 15 ends) – from Section A to Section G. All section winners and runners up receive prize money and all four teams in Division A take something home. Section winners this year were: Section A: Reed Burgess and David McCann, from Eric Kaupinnen and Col Prescott; Section B: Doug Kleinhans and Ron Keating; Section C: Kevin Clark and Leigh Leishmann; Section D: Neville Jenkins and Clinton Bailey; Section E: Tim and Garry Hale; Section F: David Ross and Theo Hitz; Section G: Sandra and Russell Taylor.
It was a fantastic field of some of the nicest people you will ever meet in lawn bowls and we thank them all for their sportsmanship and camaraderie over the weekend.
