BOWLS: Seaside Classic Triples is a tough one to win

LAWN BOWLS: A FULL field of 126 bowlers will compete in the annual $10,000 Evans Head Seaside ClassicTriples this weekend.

Some of the Northern Rivers' best bowlers will compete against teams from Sydney and South-East Queensland.

Evans Head will be represented by club stalwarts Peter Carey and Bill Cooper.

Five games will be played over two days with the winners decided on wins and overall margin.

"The competition will be that good they will have to win all five games," event organiser Steve Cselka said.

"It is hotly contested and one or two shots in any game can be the difference at the end.

"The draw is done at random off a computer program so it can't be rigged in any way."

Numbers are up on last year.

The event has been running for 10 years with Club United providing sponsorship money.

"I've still had people ringing me this week who I've had to turn away," Cselka said. "They come from just about everywhere and it's hard to pick a favourite."

Games start at 9.30am both days and spectators are welcome.

The Northern Rivers District Women's Bowling Association will host its annual challenge match against Gold Coast at Alstonville on Monday.

Play begins at 10am with one round of 15 ends followed by lunch then another round.

Last year Northern Rivers travelled to the Gold Coast for the challenge match and returned with the trophy.
