Hervey Bay Bowls Club Men’s Classic Pairs
Contributed by Jim Spirritt
The last weekend in May saw Hervey Bay BC host their Men’s Classic Pairs, which attracted a top field of players from across Queensland. Forty- two teams took part and spectators were treated to some first class bowling on the slick Hervey Bay carpets.
The three shade covered greens were full and the event was live-streamed by the Gold Coast Tweed Media Team, reaching a world-wide audience.
Competition was tight over the five games with the eventual winners being Paul Kajewski from Across the Waves and Mark Mizzi from East Bundaberg. Second place went to Liam Kronk and Brett Davis from Moore Park Beach BC. Filling the third spot was Allan Spence of Hervey Bay and Craig Hodges from Urangan.
Prizes were paid down to tenth place and all prizes were presented by Cr. David Lee of the Fraser Coast Regional Council, who are one of Hervey Bay BC’s regular Sponsors.
The weekend was a credit to the many Hervey Bay BC volunteers who worked hard to make the Hervey Bay Bowls Club a venue that bowlers from outside the ‘Bay’ will want to visit.
We’d like to give a big thank-you to all our sponsors and raffle contributors who make these events possible.
Also, a big thank-you to Tim Smith who had to pull out of the event but still travelled down from Bundaberg to MC the Friday night Calcutta.
