2017 Bowling Stone Wrap Up
The 3rd Annual Bowling Stone Lawn Bowls Challenge and Sundowner was held on Friday 24th March
at South Perth Bowls Club. This event gets more popular every year, with over 70 members and
their guests putting together teams to compete for what has become one of the most sought after
titles in our industry. This year, the aim was to knock off reigning champions – The Midland Brick
This is always a fun filled evening of spirited competition amongst colleagues and peers as well as a
great opportunity to socialise and network.
All of this competition and rigorous exercise got the appetites working, so it was fortunate that we
had some of our Committee Members lined up to put on a BBQ meat fest. Thank you to Steven Della
Bona (Chief Meat Turner), Grant Menhennett (Chief Onion Shuffler) and Tinus Nagel (Chief Bread
Slicer) for their expertise!!
And now, down to the important stuff – the results!!
The winners were a combined team, with Royce Sallur and Travis Nugent from WesTrac teaming up
successfully with Warren Nugent and Anthony Pugh from Pewag. They were followed closely by The
Komatsu Bedrock Bowlers in 2nd and Orica in 3rd. The NABA (last place) was proudly taken out by our
sponsor, for the second year in a row – Italia Stone Group’s The Stoners.
The “Bowling Stone” trophy has been hand crafted and donated by Italia Stone Group. This event is
also proudly sponsored by Tinus and his team at Italia Stone Group.
We are currently putting together a tour of the Boral, Orange Grove Quarry to be held in May and an
Education Seminar in June. Further information on these events will be sent to you once finalised.
