Local bowler Brett Stanford last week travelled to Raymond Terrace to play tournament bowls.
He played six games over four days in the Wheelchair Sports NSW singles Classic.
He played well losing to one of the eventual finalists by one shot and the other by two shots.
He enjoyed the experience playing on a synthetic surface. Brett has been invited back to another tournament in August.
Pennant season did not start well for the two Boorowa Ex Services bowls teams.
The number four team played Cootamundra Country Club at Boorowa.
The team went down on all three rinks, the overall score being 73-52 to Coota.
Shane Footes team lost by one shot, Chris Grimson by two shots and Des Grimson went down by 18.
The number six team played Boorowa Recreation Club at the rec club green.
The final score in that game was 73-42 to the Rec Club boys.
Social bowls are on again this Thursday at 12.30pm.
