The bias was all in fun

THE Moore Park Beach Festival Weekend is another step closer thanks to the barefoot bowls fundraiser last Sunday.

The event at the Moore Park Beach Bowls Club drew more than 30 people to sign up.

Publicity officer Cheryl Hay said everyone enjoyed the fun morning.

“The players were delighted that the weather lived up to its lovely winter reputation,” she said.

“Games of triples were played and it was evident by the laughter and chat that not all players were bowlers.

“Comments such as, ‘What’s a bias’ and ‘Can you retrieve that bowl from the next rink’, showed that expertise was not a high expectation.”

She said lack of ability did not dampen spirits and some rinks displayed very promising scores.

A sausage sizzle lunch and the drawing of the raffles brought the day to a close.

“The committee will certainly be planning on more events like this in the coming months,” she said. “We all agreed that the morning was a resounding success.”
