Innisfail Ladies Bowls


THE official opening of the restored riverbank of the Innisfail Bowls Club, held last Friday, was a most successful event, welcomed by all members of the Club and local community.

A sumptuous afternoon tea for over eighty guests was provided by the Innisfail ladies, and the Channel 7 TV coverage was appreciated by all who watched.

On Tuesday, six Innisfail ladies played in the TFNQDLBA Graded Triples in Tully and were rewarded with a great day of bowls.  

Next Tuesday, four Innisfail ladies will participate in the TFNQDLBA Graded Fours in Yungaburra.

On Wednesday, the final of the self-selected pairs was played and game took a most unexpected turn on the last bowl of the day.

Diana O’Brien and Helen Paterson led for 99% of the game, arriving at the last end with a score of 15 – 12 against Maisie Smith and Dian Catelan.

O’Brien held the lead until Smith delivered the last bowl, taking the jack to the back edge of the green where Smith and Catelan had four bowls waiting.

So, the winners of the Innisfail Ladies Club Pairs for 2021 are Maisie Smith and Dian Catelan, who defeated Diana O’Brien and Helen Paterson, 16 – 15.

In the social game, Eileen Hamann, Pam Anderson, and Vera Rowe [22] defeated Sue Morrison, Jan Dunn, Joan Atkinson, and Marcia Ryall [14].

Next week, the final of the Ladies Triples will be held, which promises to be an equally exciting game. 

Innisfail Ladies wished Pam Anderson and Joan Atkinson happy birthdays for August 29; they are twins with one born in Mayfield, New South Wales, and the other in Hughenden, Queensland, on the same day.
