Burnett's women keep on winning

TWEED Heads Bowls Club will be the venue for the Taylor Bowls Super Challenge 2011 Gold, Silver and Bronze divisions finals this weekend.

Urangan and Maroochy Swan were the venues last weekend for local clubs competing in the Bronze section round robin playoffs with each section winner going through to the finals.

At Urangan, the men’s section was won by Maroochy Beach after winning all three games against Burnett, Hervey Bay and Woombye, while the Burnett ladies remain undefeated in their section after defeating Hervey Bay, Moore Park and Urangan.

At Maroochy, Bargara’s men were unsuccessful against eventual winners Palmwoods, Caboolture Lakes and Caloundra.

After winning the 2010 Bowls Queensland (BQ) State Pennants, Tantitha’s hopes of representing Queensland in pennants at national level were put to rest at last week’s BQ Council meeting.

Tantitha submitted a complaint that Helensvale, who won the 2010 Premier League competition, will represent Queensland but executive officer Keith Fullerton advised that BQ’s number one pennants has never been part of a national event.

Premier League (Queensland), which is not under BQ control, runs a competition in much the same format as BQ Pennants and is part of a national competition.

Bundaberg Port Curtis District has announced their four teams to compete in the 2011 BQ District Sides Championships in Brisbane next month, and there will be two teams from each division.

At the trials held recently in Gladstone, both Bundaberg and Port Curtis Division were required to field 16 players (four teams) each but Bundaberg could only field eight players (two teams) which resulted in a lopsided competition to determine the four teams to represent the district.

The District Executive plans a meeting in July when all district affiliated members who have an interest in the BQ District Sides Championships will be invited to put forward their recommendations for the 2012 district trials.
