Innisfail Ladies’ Bowls

Innisfail Ladies, Helen Paterson, Diana O’Brien, and Dell Steve were all smiles after they finished third in the Tully Gum Boot Fours at Tully Bowls Club on Tuesday. Absent: Vera Rowe

IT has been a very satisfying week for the Innisfail ladies.

Last Saturday, Innisfail ladies joined with the men to participate in mixed pennants at Tully, where Innisfail’s two teams defeated Silkwood 24 – 12 and 26 – 14.

The bowlers were Pam Anderson, Helen Paterson, Sue Morrison, and Diana O’Brien.

On Tuesday, Helen Paterson, Diana O’Brien, Dell Steve (from Innisfail), and Vera Rowe (from South Johnstone) participated in the Tully Gum Boot Fours.

Sixty-four ladies from all over Far North Queensland (from the Marlin Coast to Ingham) played three games of 12 ends on the day, which was very well organised by Tully Bowls Club.

The Innisfail team unexpectedly had a draw and two wins, with a margin of 21, to finish in third place, so there were plenty of smiles all round.

On Wednesday, another round of the self-selected pairs was played at Innisfail.

Lyn Stevenson and Pam Anderson managed to hold off a sudden surge in the last 3 ends from Eileen Hamann and Dell Steve to win 20 – 19.

In the social games, Diana O’Brien, Ann Rule, and Jenny (a visitor from Adelaide) played a great game with Maisie Smith, Sue Morrison, and Debbie Fitzgerald, which ended in a 19 – 19 draw.

Bev Anderson and Joan Atkinson defeated Helen Paterson and Jan Dunn 15 – 11.

The cooler playing conditions at this time of year are making it enjoyable for the ladies to be on the green.

They look forward to another game of mixed pennants this Saturday at South Johnstone.
