AFTER 800 bowls and three days of red-hot competition, Maureen Smith and Elsie Hunter from Casino RSM emerged the winners of the Nambucca Heads Hibiscus Pairs.
The out-of-towners adapted very quickly to the synthetic greens, losing only one match.
Also acclimatising well to the artificial greens with four wins were Noeline Hawkes (Casino) and Sue Downes (Evans Head) who took out second place, and Wendy Polley (Park Beach) and Jean Cox (Sawtell) in third place.
The Nambucca Heads home-grown team of Jean Schneider and Arlene Duffus did the host club proud by taking out fourth place.
After such a rigorous competition, the ladies found it refreshing to cheer on the winners and express their appreciation to all their sponsors at the presentation lunch.
Present was Lauris White from Harvey World Travel, Robin Dyer ANZ, Adam from Eyecare Plus, Joanne Urquhurt Curves, Josie Bell and John Hunt from Nambucca Heads Bowling Club Ltd, and also the Nambucca RSL and Riverside Motors.
