SUNSHINE COAST WINTER BOWLS CARNIVAL 2018 – Doncaster Bowling Club
A very friendly Carnival with the weather not too hot but cold over night. Our bowlers consisting of Dinesh Balgovind, Teresa Bowden, John Phillips and Bob Urquhart competed well and won quite a few games over the period. On the first day, Teresa and Bob won 3 out of 4 games in mixed pairs at Palmwoods. Another game with the assistance of Barry Davis from New Zealand the team including Teresa Bowden (skip) Barry Davis (third) John Phillips and Bob Urquhart also won the first section fours in the early session under cover at Mooloolaba. We competed at other bowls venues at Maroochydore, Tewantin Noosa, Caloundra, Pelican Waters and Palmwoods. Most nights over the fortnight we dined at Caloundra and Maroochydore RSL’s, Bowling Clubs, Asian restaurants and home cooking where Dinesh and Champa cooked up a lovely meal at their apartment. Also Teresa and John returned the favour. Overall it was a great experience bowling against very good bowlers and I am sure it will improve our game.
