Bowlers play like their club's not in danger of closing
A HANDFUL of teams remain in contention for this year's Lismore Workers Heights Fiesta Triples competition.
Six sides are within reach of the title after advancing to today's second day of action.
The six sides all have a perfect record after claiming three wins from three matches on the opening day of competition.
Cathie Clapham, chair of the event's match committee, said she was now expecting an engrossing day's play.
"It looks like it will be a close contest," she said.
"It is going to be survival of the fittest.
"We should see some really good bowls."
Ballina Cherry St player Bernadette De Re was among those in good form, skippering her side to its unbeaten record.
Thirty-six teams from clubs across the region lined up in the event at the High St club.
Teams played two rounds of 13 ends and one of 15 on day one.
Two more rounds will be completed today before the winner is crowned.
This year's event, which runs annually, could be the last major women's competition at the bowls club.
Members are currently attempting to mobilise support to ensure the club's future.
The club could close this Sunday after suffering huge financial losses.
Despite the threat of possible closure, Clapham said players had enjoyed the friendly competition.
"You could hear some laughter around the greens at least," she said.
"It should be a good day today."
Play is scheduled to resume this morning.
