Bowls tournament held at Umina
The King and Queen of the Central Coast bowling tournament was held at Umina Beach Bowling Club from Saturday, November 5, through to Monday, November 7.
Forty-two teams from the Central Coast, Newcastle, North Coast, South Coast and Sydney contested the event over three days.
"Weather conditions looked menacing at first but cleared up to give way to fine weather for the three days of competition," said Umina Beach secretary Mr Steve Stead.
"The first two days saw the teams fighting for a place in the final with 14 teams from each qualifying day to play off for the title.
"The final day saw some of the more fancied struggle and, after the second round of 18 ends, several teams were still in with a chance and the final result was not confirmed until the last few ends of the final game," said Mr Stead.
With a late surge, John and Denise Ellison from The Entrance emerged as outright winners after Allan Breakwell and Judy King were held to a close game by Leanne Chenoweth and Steve England from Umina.
The top four teams were from the Central Coast and fifth place went to a team from Belmont.
