The Louis Trichardt Bowls Club was abuzz with action last Wednesday (Youth Day) when 20 teams came up against each other in the SPCA Louis Trichardt’s first ever friendly bowls day fundraiser.
“Judging by how well it was received, this event will most definitely be added to our annual calendar,” said the local SPCA team.
Two playing fields with 20 teams made for plenty of competition and fun. Teams pulled out all the stops with creative team names and some fancy outfits to match. From the Barking Bowlers and the Untouchaballs to the Miskruiers and the Sharpshooters and so many more.
The overall winners were the 3 Guys and an Italian team, followed closely by the Sharpshooters, and the Willehonne claiming the third place. The winners of the best-dressed prize were the Super Bowlers of Spar, with the Pure Bred Viviers team being rewarded for the most original name. The Vier Boere Balle kept everybody entertained, and obviously they took home the prize for best team spirit, while the most competitive team was the Thompsons Amaroks. The best bowl of the day went to Brian Peli. Last, but not least, Linda Breytenbach’s many hours of working out paid off – she claimed the best bowling body award.
“We humbly thank our community for their support, yet again, making this function the resounding success it was!” said the local SPCA team. “If anyone discovered that bowls is one of your many hidden talents, make sure to get in contact with the Bowling Club and sign up for your membership NOW!” added the SPCA.
