Congratulations to the Queensland Police Bowls Club team made up of Sam Narayan (Lead), Liz Little, Barry ‘Frosty’ Winter and Terry Little (Skip), the outright winners of the 2022 Police Legacy Day who finished with a total score of 33 points for the day, two points ahead of any other team.

Police families supported by Queensland Police Legacy are the benefactors of a record-breaking amount of more than $12,000 raised at this year’s Police Legacy Bowls Day. The annual event has been held at the Northern Suburbs Bowls Club in Brisbane for more than 10 years and has so far raised around $100,000 in total for Legacy. The event is hosted by the Queensland Retired Police Association and driven by State President, Greg Early. With 14 rinks available for play at Northern Suburbs, the day was fully booked with 28 teams competing for the winner’s prize, runners-up and round wins and this included some top line bowlers.

Enthusiasm for the day was not dampened at all by the weather closing in the previous night and rain falling for most of the day. Games were reduced by half with all games being played on the covered green.

With the Legacy Bowls Day being cancelled in 2020 and rescheduled in 2021 due to Covid, organisers were not about to allow rain to halt proceedings in 2022. Despite the weather, a good day was had by all.
