Bowling comp kicks off

ABOUT 228 bowlers have turned out for the annual Northern Rivers District Bowling Association's women's carnival in Lismore this week.

The three-day competition started at the East Lismore and Lismore City bowling clubs yesterday.

There are 44 clubs represented with 15 from the Northern Rivers.

Teams of four from Grafton to the Sunshine Coast make up the field this year with the event in its 58th year.

"It is the major district event for us," Northern Rivers district president Bev Montheue said.

"We have a really good carnival and some of the ladies have been coming here for twenty years.

"A lot of work goes into it and once we finish we start planning for the next one straight away."

Competition continues at the East and South Lismore bowling clubs today.

It concludes back at Lismore City and South Lismore tomorrow.

There will be a presentation and concert at the Lismore Workers Club tomorrow night.
