Last month, members of the Tully Bowls Club celebrated two events, the final of the men’s pairs championship and a member’s 80th birthday.

The pairs event was contested by Peter Smith with Rod Bradley and Ray Downing with John Taylor. Peter and Rod were holding a favourable lead by the 15th end, but as the saying goes, “it is not over until the fat lady sings“. Peter and Rod were the eventual victors, but only by three shots.

Rod had another event to celebrate, his 80th birthday, and the members surprised him with a small celebration of the event. During the celebrations, President Joan presented Rod with his “Super Veterans“ badge.

Another member, Betty Cochrane, joined in the celebration for her forthcoming birthday.
