Damaging storm rips through Southern Downs sport club

A BRUTAL storm left a number of casualties in the Southern Downs yesterday.

A bore pump shed at the Tannymorel Bowls Club was completely flattened, with sheet metal left strewn after the storm passed through.

The club took to their Facebook page to share the damage, but mentioned it was lucky the club was insured.

Storms have not ruined the spirit of the club though, who have chosen to react with humour to promote an upcoming event tonight.

"Just like our poor little shed, you'll be blown away by the fun to be had tonight in Round 2 of our Christmas Mini-Classic,” the club shared through a Facebook post.

"You'll be safe and sound though and Debs Dinner Delights will save you slaving over a hot stove before you get on the green at 6.45pm.”

On the menu tonight there are a range of dishes including rump steak, chicken schnitzel and lasanga.

If you'd like to take part in the event, names need to be in by 6.30pm with a night of bowls, raffles, food and banter promised for those who get involved.

Tannymorel Bowls Club is located at 25 Oak St, Tannymorel.
