Bowlers flock to Evans Head

THE 44th Seafood Bowls Carnival at Evans Head Bowling Club saw 168 bowlers from around Australia converge on the greens last week.

"It's five days of friendly bowling and we've had some beautiful weather," club chairman John Forshaw said.

"The bowlers have had three games of bowls a day."

Bowlers have come from as far away as Cairns, Tasmania, Victoria and South Australia to enjoy Evans Head's facilities.

Newly appointed ladies bowls president Joan Fernance said the carnival had been a wonderful success.

"The numbers have been the same as other years and it's a chance to bring people from all areas together to enjoy a good game of bowls," she said.

"There's been a great atmosphere of competition."
