general information


Another big week for the club, of our Invitation 4’s competition. The Beaches Bowls Club would like to thank ALL of our sponsors for supporting this club in one of the very best competitions in Queensland.

We had visitors from all over Queensland. Weipa in the Nth to the Gold Coast in the South to Longreach out West and a couple from South Australia.(Covid checked and sorted). The Ladies and Men’s comp had a full complement of teams with reserves on standby in the event of cancelations, which rarely happens.
 A BIG THANK YOU to all of our sponsors who make this week of competition possible and as successful as it is. You can see our Sponsors advertised on the boards around the greens. Again, Thank You.

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.

   Cancelled due to ZONE trials at the Beaches.

   Three and a half teams from the Beaches, out of 14, went to the Pioneer Valley for their Platapus 4’s carnival,
   and taking home the Trophy was the team of Les (ECHO) Scott (his very first carnival), Dave Makell, Barry Finlay, and
   Adam Johnstone. Can’t get the smile off of Scotties face.
   All the teams lost 1 game which bought on some close finishes in the last.
   Top POINTS to the Valley Club for their, always great day out and hospitality.

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.
