Friday night bowls in Emerald sees new talent rolls smoothly

A FIELD of 28 experienced, novice and beginner bowlers took to the Emerald Bowls Club greens last Friday night for the first week of Jackpot Bowls.

From all reports the newly renovated front green played true, if a little heavy.

Many of the bowlers were playing their first game and while a little wayward at the start, most got into the swing of delivering a bowl.

Sasha Hicks and Emalia McKeown were two of the beginners who impressed some of the local lady bowlers.

Emalia's team of Leigh Boy, Sol Morrow and the star golfer Tyler West (all beginner bowlers as well) had the last laugh by defeating Sasha's side, comprising husband Phil, John Pusey and ring-in Dean Johnston. A 10-8 result indicated how evenly matched all the players were.

Anyone can enter the Jackpot Bowls at any time during the next nine weeks, either as an individual, or as a team of two, three or four and you may even nominate if you want to play another team.

See you at the bowlie!
