Ex-service bowlers converge on Yamba

Yamba was the host venue for the 2021 NSW RSL Inter-Zone Bowls Carnival during the week with 96 ex-service bowlers plus supporters gathered for two days of competition and camaraderie.

Representatives from the Hunter, Central Coast, Mid North Coast and North Coast faced off for the annual contest. After the two days of robust competition, it was the team from the Mid North Coast who were victorious being the only zone to navigate their way through the foray undefeated.

The side of Allan Conlon, Bob Worthy, Brian Woodward and Ray Schafer were the best preformed local (North Coast) side with two good wins and a very narrow loss resulting from their three games. Mid North Coast will be the host next year with the specific venue yet to be decided.
