Club president Ron Scott said he was anticipating an enjoyable tournament.

"It is usually a good event," he said. "There is usually a good mix of players in it for the hell of it and others going for the prize-money.

"We are looking forward to it."

Action starts on Saturday with a men's three bowl triples tournament.

Sunday features a mixed three bowls event, while Monday will comprise a men's pairs event.

Action starts at 12.30pm each day.

Spirits are high at the club after its Grade Three Pennants side triumphed in the Zone One play-offs at Grafton.

Two hard-fought wins against Brunswick Heads and Yamba on Sunday have earned the side a place in the state titles in August.

"The players are stoked," Scott said. "I was on the bus home and they were celebrating like there was no tomorrow.

"They did really well."

Meanwhile, Alstonville's Garry Ensbey and South Lismore's Ian Martin are celebrating after taking a sought-after tournament.
