State finals entrant Shane Reed.

BULAHDELAH Bowling Club has had a busy few weeks of events and competitions.

Most notable has been the success of singles winner Shane Reed, who progressed to the state finals.

Shane travelled to the Mount Lewis Bowling Club in Sydney, where more than 100 individuals and pairs teams from across the state came together to battle it out.

On the first day of competition Shane won his first game 25 to 24 and his second 25 to 11.

From there Shane progressed to the knockout round where he was defeated by an Ettalong player 25 to 17.

“I thought it was an enjoyable experience going into a contest like that,” Shane told NOTA.

“Hopefully I’ll be able to recontest this contest next year if I can win the club singles or the club pairs.

“I’d like to thank all those who sponsored and supported me.”

In other news, bowlers from Beresfield Bowling Club travelled to Bulahdelah for a team match up recently.

In a tight but friendly contest Bulahdelah won overall sets 9 to 9, 14 to 2, a tie at 12 to 12 and 16 to 10 with the overall score Bulahdelah 51 to Beresfield 33.

“It was virtually a tie the whole day,” Greg Kirkham, Bulahdelah’s travelling bowls organiser, told NOTA.

“It was almost a perfect score on a beautiful day.”

Graham Melville, Captain of Beresfield Bowling Club said, “We have travelled across the state over many years and came to Bulahdelah about two years ago after another club had dropped us and were looking for another club.

“We found it a fantastic experience where people are so inviting.”

Bulahdelah Bowling Club is looking forward to more competitions at the venue in the future.
