Tully’s Classic Invitational Fours

by bqmedia

Sixty-four bowlers from Townsville in the South to Cairns in the North arrived in Tully for a weekend to remember in November last year, when Tully Bowls Club staged its annual Classic Invitational Fours.

Elio Crema from Mareeba, now in his eighties, is a part of the furniture after attending this event from the first time Tully Club first staged it.

Congratulations to Team ‘Kiwi’: Kevin ‘Kiwi’ Deegan, Andre Buck, Peter Smith and Elio Crema on taking the winning spot. Just one point behind in second place was the team of Ash White, Stan Richards, Ron Ford and Rod Bradley. Third place was team Ben Cribbin, Andrew ‘Red Dog’ Hansen, Geoff Ryder and Eddie Rick. This year, the club awarded fourth place to Alf Silliato, Alf Strano, David Leach and Michael Roots.

President Joan thanked those members and volunteers who gave their time to assist at this year’s event. When collecting their prizes, players commented on the weekend of bowls, saying it was one of their favourites and how much they enjoyed playing at Tully with their fellow bowlers.
