Minnipa bowls tournament dominated by Streaky Bay teams

Teams from Streaky Bay dominated the Minnipa Bowling Club’s Skins Tournament earlier this month.

The quartet of Gus Giles, Raylene Giles, Sue Rumbelow and John Rumbelow took out the event four ends to two in the final, finishing ahead of fellow Streaky Bay team Cliff Edmunds, Rob Oswald, Reg Brown and Mark Wrigley.

A total of 56 players in 14 teams from across upper Eyre Peninsula took part in the skins, which has been running for two decades.

Teams from Ceduna, Streaky Bay, Wirrulla, Wudinna, Poochera and Minnipa competed.

Tournament director Scott Forrest was pleased with how the tournament went.

“It was a good day for all, we were happy with the turnout which almost filled the green, and we saw some competitive bowls action.”
