Excitement building for women bowlers
A GROUPof excited women at Park Beach Bowling Club are already counting down the days to their week away in Dubbo.
The number four pennants team is headed to the western plains in July for the State titles courtesy of their recent victory at the zone level.
After knocking off Sawtell for the district pennant, the Park Beach team headed off to North Haven to tackle the best teams the zone had to offer including Wooli, Ballina, Stuarts Point, Condong, North Haven and Forster/Tuncurry.
Before their final match, Park Beach were tied for top place with Forster/Tuncurry which created a title deciding finale to the tournament.
The pressure was on both teams but it was Park Beach who handled it the better and drew away to a comfortable 56-33 victory.
The winners couldn't hide their excitement as they faced the early morning chill at last week's flag raising.
A good omen for the team is that the last time the number four women from Park Beach were successful at the zone level in 1998, that team performed well at the state finals.
Park Beach number four women's teams who won the district and zone flags are: Rink 1 - Joan Jamieson, Shirley Innes, Dina Chittick and Peg Milham (skip).
Rink 2 - Denise Hargraves, Eunice Trees, Margaret Cavanagh and, Kath Fuller (skip).
