2017 National Bowling Arm Sides championship results
Congratulations to the Woomeras who at the National titles won 3 of the 4 disciplines - just being pipped by Victoria into overall second place. Click here for detailed results.
The Woomeras obviously benefited from the hit out on July 31 against our Zone (Golden Arm Shield)- and the next rematch is set down for 30 July 2018 - look out for further details next year!! Hopefully we will help them go that one step further.
At long last we have photographs of those elite bowlers who have reached the milestone of 50 representative games for the Zone. We were missing a few. Take a look here of who they are and what they've done. Also in the same area are details on those who have reached 75 and also 100 games!!!
