The Kilcoy Bowls Club is now back up and running after the festive season break, and the club set the wheels in motion on Tuesday, January 10 with Social Bowls.
Winners on the day were Pauline Lawson, Kelly Charters and Elayne Moat, who defeated Maxine Wilcox, Roger Moat and Lyn Candler.
Wednesday, January 11 was Pub Day:
On Tuesday, January 17 the popular Star Of The Green competition resumed, and last year’s title holder John Worrall defeated Pauline Lawson.
John will go on play Trudi Pratt next Tuesday, and since the jackpot did not go off, it will be $94 next week.

The Yarraman Bowls Club also fired back into life on Saturday, January 14 with a sponsored trophy day that was also the first outing of the club’s new monthly Birthday Boys event.
The idea for Birthday Boys was suggested at the November committee meeting and the fine details were fleshed out at the following month’s meeting.
Briefly, every member who has a birthday in that month contribute $20.00 towards the prizemoney.
In January, there were only two Birthday Boys (Steve Daly, January 1961 and Wayne Jewell, January 1956) so the prize money was a bit thin.
But players took to the greens for two games of 13 ends and everyone had a good time.
Birthday Boys will now be run on the second Saturday of each month. Green fees are $10.00 per player, names need to be in by noon for a 12:30pm start, and teams will be allotted by club draw.
Naturally, players from other clubs are welcome to take part too.
The Yarraman Bowls Club will be holding a Three Bowls Triples competition for club select teams on Saturday, January 21.
Games will commence at 12:30pm and new players are always welcome.
The club will also be commemorating Australia Day on Thursday, January 26 with an Australia Day Tournament.
Club select teams will play two games of 12 ends or finish at the bell, with scoring two points an end and five for the win and no dead ends (respot the jack).
Green fees are $10 per player and names need to be in by 8:30am for a 9:30am start.
The Tournament will be followed by an afternoon tea.
On Yarraman’s Blackboard:
The Nanango Bowls Club in Henry Street, Nanango will be holding an Australia Day club selected competition at 3:00pm on Thursday, January 26.
