It was a lovely sunny day at Harbord Bowling Club, when 64 players from Region 15 (North Shore & Manly-Warringah Districts) and Region 16 (Mitchell & Macquarie Districts) gathered to play the inter-regional Anita Linden Trophy on Monday 16 May 2022. Normally an annual contest, the event had not run since 2019 because of the Covid-19 lockdowns and disruptions. There was an air of excitement when the Region 16 contingent arrived by coach to take on our squad. After the customary “group photographs”, the players took to the greens which, after being flooded so many times this summer, were a credit to the greenkeepers. nearing the end of the morning games, it looked like a close contest; however, Region 15 picked up a 6 and two 7s over the last few ends, to go into the lunch break with a 35-shot lead, 130-95. After lunch, despite Region 16’s best efforts, our players continued their form, once again winning 5 of the 8 rinks, and taking out the day 257-190. Thank-you to Manly-Warringah District and Harbord BC for hosting.
