Innisfail Men’s Bowls

The 2021 Club Championship Singles’ winner, John Phillips (left), and runner up, Jim Martinod.

LAST Thursday’s social bowls had a different format, with the less experienced bowlers playing skips for the day. 

The winning team was Joe Van Tienen, Gordon Goes, and Graham Kirkman.

Congratulations to John Phillips for winning the Club Championship Singles’ final against Jim Martinod in a great game of bowls.  

This afternoon, the final of the Men’s Pairs will be played with Mick de Vries and Ian Humphreys up against last year’s winners, Alf Strano and Alf Siliato. 

Game time is 1.00pm, so come down to the club and enjoy what will be a great game of bowls.

Commiserations to the Mixed Pennants team, who suffered a defeat at the hands of South Johnstone.

Innisfail hosted the final of the inaugural Barry Wallis Memorial Shield playoffs last Sunday afternoon, in which South Johnstone defeated Cairns to be declared the overall winners. 

Clubs from Cairns to Silkwood participated in the event with games played throughout the year and culminating in the final.

Second place went to Cairns and Innisfail claimed third place after defeating Gordonvale who finished fourth, whilst Silkwood were too strong for Babinda and claimed fifth and sixth places, respectively. It was great to see the games played in such a friendly and social atmosphere. 

Barry Wallis was a well-respected member of the Innisfail lawn bowls’ fraternity. He was the runner-up of the Club Championship in 2017 in the year of his passing. 

Grateful thanks to members of the Wallis family for their attendance and presentation of the Shield to the winning team.

This Sunday will see 16 teams do battle in the Innisfail Lightning Fours. Any club members, who are available, are asked to lend a helping hand.

New members and visiting bowlers are most welcome for social games on Thursday and Saturday afternoons, with names to be in by 1.00pm.
