Small in numbers, big in strength

The cream came to the top recently when the Kandanga Bowlers brought home the spoils from the Great Bowls Challenge Finals at Mooloolaba. This is a competition played over six weeks which involves men and women’s clubs from the region between Gympie to Bribie Island. When nominations were called early this year, our Kandanga men nominated a team, but our ladies were reluctant due to a shortage of players.

The Great Bowls Challenge committee encouraged Kandanga ladies to nominate a team to prevent a Bye occurring. We agreed to field a team in Division 5, which saw us playing against Pomona, Kawana and Maroochydore. The Kandanga Men were in Division 3 playing against teams from Albert, Tewantin/Noosa and Nambour clubs.

After the six rounds, both the men’s and ladies teams were on top of our respective divisions. This was remarkable considering the size of our club.

A win in the semi-finals against Solander Lake at Coolum placed the ladies’ side in the final played at Mooloolaba where we were delighted with our win against Glasshouse Country.

The men’s side did extremely well to win the quarter final against Buderim at Caloundra. They were unfortunately defeated by Coolum in the semi-final, but the efforts of both the men and ladies brought home a handy $3490 to Kandanga Country Club.
