The early morning crowd getting ready to watch on Finals Day.

The 2018 season reached its climax at Ipswich and District Bowls Club under a virtually cloud free sky, giving superb bowling weather.  The good crowds on both days were treated to some excellent bowling and some close encounters, indeed the Senior Pairs Final went to an extra end, after the pairing of Holland and Brunton picked up 4 shots on the final end to level the scores.  After such heroics however they dropped a shot on the final end, resulting in a win for Golston and Brown-Warr.  For all the results from a great weekend of bowls click HERE.
