THE St Georges Basin Men's Bowling Club hosted the ACT Australian Defence Force men's bowls representative team last week.
On Thursday the ACT boys practised among themselves but on Friday it was a full game of 21 ends against the Basin boys.
In the end it was the hosts who won 3 1/2 rinks to 1/2.
A great morning was had by all and we are hoping to make this an annual event. We would like to wish the ACT all the best in their up-coming national titles at Ipswich in September.
