Mortimer Toyota Mixed Trips Bowls Tournament

Toyota flags fluttered in the breeze on a glorious day of bowls at the Mooi River Country Club on Sunday, 17 August, 2014.

Eighteen teams participated in the annual mixed trips competition. The format was two games of twelve ends in the morning followed by one game of fourteen ends after lunch.

Amid much banter & encouragement mixed with a lot of advice, players battled against each other. The winners of the session prizes won pockets of potatoes sponsored by Ivanhoe Farming. The eventual winners on the day were a team from Bergville comprised of Gavin Robinson, Jill Atkinson & Jimmy Nel. Second place went to Mike & Colleen Andrew & Brian Ravno of Howick Bowling Club. In third position was a Mooi River team made up of Glen Manning, Sharon Willey & Gary Baleson. Mortimer Toyota sponsored meat packs provided by Jackies Butchery in Estcourt for the winners.

Mooi River Bowling Club has a ‘tabs-in’ game every Saturday afternoon starting at 1:30. Development bowls are also played on Wednesday afternoons. Anyone wishing to know more is asked to contact Toni Hanrahan on 072 158 3364.
