Alligator Creek BC takes Dunn Cup for the first time
Alligator Creek Bowls Club walked away with some sound achievements after making the finals for the first time in the Dunn Cup and claiming the title.
Held over four days from June 30 to July 3, 2022 in Townsville at Cutheringa Bowls Club, the Dunn Cup has been running since 1937. All district clubs entered a fours team, with two sections of eight clubs competing for the cup.
Not deterred by being a small club with only 14 members, and after a nail-biting four-and-a-half hour final match, Alligator Creek Bowls Club won the Dunn Cup from last year’s champions Cutheringa Bowls Club on their home soil 25 to 23 after 25 ends.
Congratulations to the Alligator Creek Bowls Club team:
• Skip: David Goode
• 3rd: Gary Cooper
• 2nd: Greg Duncan
• Lead: Tom Hendy
Well done to Tom Hendy, who was awarded the best player shield from the winning side.
The members from Alligator Creek would also like to congratulate Cutheringa Bowls Club for their excellent hospitality and sportsmanship during the tournament.
Well done to all their club members, as it takes a lot of work behind the scenes to run a successful tournament.
