Ettalong defeats parliamentary bowls team
Ettalong Bowling Club has won a friendly match against the NSW Parliamentary Bowling Club played on Thursday, October 27, at Ettalong.
Parliamentary Bowling Club president Mr Richard Amery, the Member for Mt Druitt, said his hopes of a win one day were given a boost this time round as the gap between the two clubs narrowed.
Ettalong won 57-49 despite the Parliament winning two out of three rinks.
The two teams played for the perpetual trophy donated in 2006 by then Member for Gosford Ms Marie Andrews.
To date, the trophy has not left Ettalong but Mr Amery and his bowling colleagues said they lived in the hope of one day winning the right to have the trophy displayed in State Parliament.
Mr Amery and Ms Andrews were joined in the tournament by Member for Kogarah Mr Brian Langton and Member for Rockdale Mr George Thompson.
Ettalong Women's Bowling Club vice-president Ms Lauren Williams captained the locals on the day and accepted the trophy on behalf of her colleagues.
