Lorna Buckworth Shield played at Umina
Umina Beach Women's Bowling Club hosted the Lorna Buckworth Shield on Monday, April 24.
The four bowling clubs on the Peninsula - Umina, Woy Woy, Ettalong and Everglades - battled it out on a beautiful sunny day.
To be eligible to enter the competition, bowlers were required to have been bowling for less than five years with each team consisting of eight players from each club.
The match is always played at the club which last held the shield.
The day started with morning tea in the club, after which bowlers went out to the greens to contest the first two games.
This was followed by a lunch comprising of fresh sandwiches and cake.
After lunch, the last game was played.
Then it was back into the club for the presentation and the drawing of the money tree raffle.
The 2017 Shield was won by Woy Woy with 66 points and runners up were Ettalong with 64 points.
Third place went to Everglades with 54 points and in fourth place were Umina Beach with 47 points.
