The Gloucester Bowling Club's number 7 Pennants team took part in the State Championships on Friday March 25 and Saturday March 26.
They started their campaign against Blacktown Workers and unfortunately they were defeated in a hard fought match 65-52.
Their second match was a better result beating Grandviews Bowling Club 58-43.
Their last match resulted in a loss to Kurri Kurri 62-53 but the boys fought hard till the very end.
The boys played two matches in rain on outdoor greens and one on the world championship indoor green. The weather for the whole weekend was abysmal and the players should hold their head high for their never say die attitude.
Thursday's (March 31) men's bowls was washed out again.
Surprise, surprise, there was a strange yellow thing in the sky called the sun on Saturday April 2 for the mixed bowls event. This contributed to a good field of 18 starters. A big welcome to a new starter in Jill Carson.
