The Cattle Creek Mill Shield

The Cattle Creek Mill Shield was held at the Marian and Pioneer Valley Bowls Clubs over the weekend. Unfortunately, Seaforth and the Valley clubs were eliminated in the first rounds. Sarina defeating North Mackay Goosies and Marian at Marian, and Northern Beaches defeating Mackay City and Mackay at the Valley on Saturday. The final played at the Valley between Beaches and Sarina on Sunday morning with Beaches winning all 4 Rinks at 97 to 59 and losing only 1 game out of 12 all weekend.
Beaches Skips:  Godfrey         v Sarina Skips: Adams.
                            Petersen        v                         Burrows.
                            Boyce             v                         Kerr.
                            Johnstone     v                         Bettienes.           
A very good effort to all the clubs participating, with Gun City Ladies supporting their club. A great weekend put on by the Valley, with good banter and sportsman ship by all involved in this little club. Hopefully next year will attract better support from all the district clubs. cheers Bowlers and Others.

A Charity Day sponsored by our Club in aid of Paralympian Beau Menzies (He has Cerebral Palsy) to become No.1 in Australia, Beau MUST complete another Ironman by the end of 2021! He is currently 2nd Aust and 8th in the world. His last Ironman was the Cairns Oceania Ironman. He came 2nd. They Swam 3.8km. Bike Ride 180km. Run 42.2km. Our club. Men’s and Women’s, raised $1472.00.
Beau is trying to get support to aid his finances during these very trying times of covid and shut downs.
We wish Beau luck in his endeavour to get No.1. at whatever he goes for. Good luck Mate.


The men’s Club had a grudge match between Divisions 1 and 6 on Saturday. Div 6 Winning their group in Pennants this year.
Now Div 6 lads believe they were as good as our Div1 lads. The result was fairly close, and with the handicap factored into the equation. (I believe we should pass this formula at the next committee meeting) 20% of the Div 1 total Score 43 = 8.6 . Div 6 35 + 8.6 = 43.6. It was good to see that the selectors were in attendance, with some Div 1 players looking for a shot at the lower divisions next year. It just shows that the level of skill in our lower levels is at a very high standard. Of course, the level of banter and sledging was at an all-time high with two skips in particular letting fly at an astonishing rate. Well done fellas, we might do it again next year.


The men’s club played the annual game of “State Of Origin (Where you were born) Qld and NSW. There are 3 games of 2 bowl triples with all members of each team playing in a different position. Lead. Second. Skip.  Qld had a few reserves up our sleeves, and NSW were lucky to support a whole side. More so, the games were played at the same level as last year with sledging, much banter, though NO biff is allowed (2 months in the bin) with spectators and members of the public cheering on their respected team. The result was a DRAW according to the games coordinators. A good result for all. NSW, in their usual way were first out the gate home after the results were finalised. Fatigued we believe with Qld again the last ones standing. They just can’t keep up with our resilience.

One day, a man came home and was greeted by his wife dressed in a very sexy nightie.
‘Tie me up’, she purred, ‘and you can do anything you want.’
So he tied her up and went and had a game of bowls.
