Karuah Bowling Club
FOUR Pennant teams in different grades went out this year from the Karuah Bowls Club, one learned a lot but didn’t do real well, another just missed the finals, the third got to the quarter finals, and on Sunday, one of the four won.

In a year where the Club punched well above its weight, a pennant win was the icing on the cake.
Greg Pearson the Grade 4 Captain said, “The victory was even sweeter as they had to beat a team in the Final that had beaten them just weeks before, on their home green at Raymond Terrace.”
To make the finals the men from Karuah had to finish in the top 2 teams of a 10 team section and then play a final series against the best teams from 3 other 10 team sections.
The finals were played this last weekend with 8 teams playing off on Saturday and then Sunday morning.
The final was played Sunday afternoon in front of a big crowd of both Raymond Terrace and Karuah fans and the team from the little club at Karuah came up trumps.
The Karuah Club celebrated the win back at the Karuah RSL, mindful that they would be back to playing social Club games this Tuesday and Thursday.
They were also aware that they would be playing in the State Pennant winners finals at Port Macquarie late next month.
