Prawn Day at the Cross
At the Southern Cross Bowls Club in Warwick, Prawn Day Bowls was a huge success with a large number attending to enjoy the bowls and a big feed of fresh tasty prawns.
President Cameron “Yowie” Wilson raced to the Gold Coast early to get the morning catch straight from the fishing trawler.
Novices were included in the teams and there were some great bowls played with laughter in abundance.
After finishing the game of 18 ends and putting the bowls away, it was down to eating and washing down delicious prawns with a cold one. A great way to end the afternoon.
Team Patapus kept in touch with the points, but in the end they were outclassed by the colourful performance of the Wiggles.
Species overcame the Bushrats. The Easybeats lived up to their name when they were trodden all over by team Moose.
The Clippers or Flippers didn’t know what game they were playing against the Prawn Stars and The Old Farts blew the Moonys off. We’re Too Sexy For Our Bodies put on a show against the Scot’s Knees. Team Trouble were definitely in deep strife against team Focus.
There were plenty of raffles and prizes of even more prawns to take home. A big thank you goes to all those members who put the work in to make the day happen, and to those who attended and played. See you next time at the Cross.
For barefoot bowls, social and competition bowls, functions and bar, it is hard to go past the Southern Cross Bowls Club Inc. opposite St Mary’s Church in Warwick.
