Hope the lineup of new Holdens won’t be too much of a distraction as the Sexton & Green Bowls Carnival gets underway this weekend, with a bumper number of teams partcipating.

Organiser Neville Richardson said nominations are on track to field at least 20 teams, a big jump from the 16 teams playing last year. Nominations are still open and teams can be made of those not already in a group.

Long-term sponsor Sexton & Green is back on board, with the carnival boasting a prize pool of $1000. But it’s not about the prizes, Mr Richardson said.

“It’s more about the fellowship of bowls.”

The club has only three carnivals a year and this one is the most popular.
