The 17th Annual Woombye $10,000 was held the weekend 13, 14, 15 November, bringing 96 bowlers in 24 teams to our Woombye Bowls Club.
The Brian Slatter team from Dalby won the first prize of $4,000 winning
all 7 games plus also acquiring the Calcutta pot of over $3,800.
Teams travelled from far and wide to compete-- such as Tara, Chinchilla, Toowoomba, Dalby, Wellington Point, Geebung, Brighton and various Sunshine Coast clubs. This carnival
is the highlight of the year at Woombye Bowls Club.
During their stay, they also supported many local Woombye food, beverage and hospitality businesses, so beneficial to the economy of our area.
Tournament Director, Howard Riach, praised the
efforts of all involved- bowlers, supporters, volunteers, staff and our dedicated greenkeeper, Geoff Steele, in their show of strong community support to once again make this a stellar event.
Even in these tough and unpredictable times, our club has
grown its bowling and social member numbers and we are proud that more people see that bowls at WBC is not just about bowling, but also about community engagement, social interaction, fun and laughter.
