Aymee To Represent Burnett In Sydney

Filed under Bowls, Breaking News, Latest News, Sport

19-year-old Aymee Bellert, from Gayndah, will be representing the Burnett in Queensland's Under 25 side in Sydney this September

August 12, 2016

Young Gayndah bowler Aymee Bellert has been written about in this column before. This week she deserves another mention in despatches.

Aymee, who now plays for the Kingaroy Bowls Club, has just been selected for Queensland’s Under 25 side.

She’ll be flying to Sydney with her other seven team-mates next month to represent the Sunshine State at Cabramatta.

Aymee is the sole Burnett District player on the team.

She was in Kingaroy this week to take part in President Di Reed’s day, no doubt keeping up with her practice as she prepares for the competition.

The club naturally hope for great things from this dynamic young lawn bowler.

On Sunday, the club heard the good news from Nanango’s Heritage Community Branch that that the bank had looked kindly on our application for a grant to air-condition our clubhouse.

This should make things much more pleasant for locals and visiting bowlers during the hotter months of the year.

Thankyou Heritage!

Yarraman News

Here’s one for the diary: Yarraman’s next Pub Day is coming up on Thursday, August 18 and it’s always such a popular event you’ll need to get your name in by Wednesday to take part.

Games will start at 11:00am and there’ll be two games of 13 ends.

Teams will be allocated to rinks for the first game, and will change rinks for the second.

Scoring will be two points for an end and five for a win.

In the event of a tie, the highest score in the first game will take the prize. But if there’s still a tie, the highest score in the second game will win the guernsey.

Green fees are $15, and afternoon tea will be provided after it’s all over.

And here’s another one for the diary: the Yarraman Bowls Club will be holding a big fundraising day on Saturday, August 27 to help fund the construction of the new u-beaut barbecue area plus furnishings.

Play will take the form of 21 ends of lawn bowls and should be on the grounds by 10:00am for a cuppa and a biscuit so you can start playing on the greens at 10:30am.

Green fees are $20, and after the first 10 ends everyone will adjourn for lunch (a hamburger followed by an ice cream).

After lunch, the remaining 11 ends will be played to determine the day’s champions.

Scoring will be a point for each end won and five points for a win, with winners playing winners and losers playing losers in the second half.

There will also be a huge multi-draw raffle of sponsored prizes, and tea, coffee, cake and biscuits will be available at the end of the day.

And there will be entertainment for children, too, if you have to bring some along.

Kilcoy News

After a good win in the rain at home on Tuesday, Kilcoy’s Ladies Pennants team travelled to Solander Lake on Thursday, August 4 for the return match.

Solander Lake handled the gusty wind much better than Kilcoy, so the match came out with a win apiece for both sides over the two-day match.
