Zone 11 lawn bowlers from Muswellbrook, Denman, Aberdeen, Scone and Murrurundi face-off on the greens

A GREAT day was had by all when the Returned and Services League of Australia (RSL) NSW RSL Lawn Bowls Association hosted a recent competition at Murrurundi.

The Zone 11 contingent, featuring players from Muswellbrook, Denman, Aberdeen, Scone and the host club, hit the greens for some friendly clashes.

"Everyone had a terrific time," local secretary-treasurer Peter Houlahan said.

"In the end, there were about 50 bowlers with carers.

"A lovely lunch was provided by the Murrurundi Bowling Club, while the green was in excellent shape as usual.

"All up, the hospitality was excellent.

"Our thanks go to the DVA and Osborn Bus Service who organised the travel."

The NSW RSL Lawn Bowls Association is a sporting body exclusively for Returned ex-Servicemen, who belong to an RSL Sub-Branch and are also registered bowlers with Bowls NSW.

Currently, there are 12 active zones in the state.
