A total of 14 teams from all parts of southern Queensland converged on Wondai at the weekend for the second annual Dingo Creek bowls carnival.

A number of sides travelled more than 200km to take part in the two-day event which comprised a total of five games.

While a heavy storm occurred during play in the final round, the carnival was again a great success.

Winners with four wins and a total of attaining 40 ends was the Nanango combination of Rod McCallum, Mike Smith, Allan Wright and Glen Yeates.

Second prize money went to the composite side of Brian Kunde Snr (Goomeri), Merv Horne (Urangan), Ray Frahm (Murgon) and Peter Bennett (Gayndah).

The Fraser Coast combination of Gordon Williams, Trevor Learroyd, Mick Roy and Al Johnson finished third with three wins and a draw, just two ends behind the winners.

The carnival, which is the brainchild of Wondai Club secretary Evan O’Rourke, seems certain to stay on the Wondai calendar.

The Wondai Bowls Club’s recent Farmers’ Drought Appeal raised just over $3000.

The drought appeal funds have been forwarded to the Murgon Rotary Club for distribution to needy farmers and graziers in the region.
