Inclement weather disrupts bowls contest at Buderim
NAMBOUR Probus Club played in the annual Bob Martin Open Fours Competition held at Buderim Bowls Club on the June 29.
The club was represented by three teams, consisting of; Team 1: Martin Coleman, Dorothy Kelly, Don Welk and John Ison. Team 2: Terry Hall, Ron Will, Lynn Hall, Stan Shepherd 1st game), Tony Brackley (2nd game), Team 3: Jim Stewart, Gordon Green, Jean Coleman and Bill Niven.
Unfortunately the second game had to be called off after seven ends, due to the inclement weather.
The overall winner on the day was a team from Pelican Waters and the runner-up team were from the Nambour Probus 90 club.
Terry Hall's team had a "Round Win "and got their money back, and Jean Coleman won a bottle of port in the raffle as did Jim Stewart, and Gordon Green won a bottle of rum. As usual Buderim Bowls venue was spot on, and a good day was had by all.
Thank you to the ladies who filled in for our club due to some of our members being unavailable to play.
The club's guest speaker for July was "Dusty" Miller who related his experiences in Bomber Command during the war.
He flew many missions over enemy territory and is now in his nineties.
