2017 NSW State Carnival in Illawarra

On the 22nd May four of our brave lady bowlers from Clovelly Womens’ Bowling Club ventured into the unknown territory of the NSW State Carnival in Illawarra. Gina O’Reilly (skip), Betty Skinner, Sharon Scarcella, Lyn Davis were all first timers and were eager to play their best! To their surprise (but not ours) they shined! Gina reports: “On Monday we made our way to Albion Park where we won our first two games and were pleasently surprised by how we played. We were thrilled when we also won the Best Match Score for the day and received a money prize! We regrouped for Tuesday in Oak Flats and again won our two games. On Wednesday in Windang the pressure was on and we need to win both games to take out the section. We won the first game and were positive for the 6th game but all good things come to an end and we were out-played by a better team on the day. As there were no six game winners in our section we were in with a chance with five wins but lost out on a count back. We surprised ourselves with the way we played and each team member stepped up to perform when needed. We met some great ladies and had some terrific matches.” Well done ClovellyWBC!
