Fiesta success for hosts, competitors

AFTER a runner-up finish last year, Marlene Hannant and Shirley Palmer went one better this year to play in the winning team in the annual Rose Fiesta at Warwick East Bowls Club.

They were joined in the winning South Toowoomba team by Glenda Jeans and Margaret Short who were playing in the carnival for a fourth time and had only enjoyed round success in the past.

The South Toowoomba team didn't get it all their own way.

They recorded two point wins against Warwick club and Tenterfield, drew with The Summit/Inglewood and beat the host club Warwick East in round 4 yesterday.

At age 70, Margaret Short has vowed to be back next year.

"I want to play at least another five years of Rose Fiesta carnivals," she said.

Hannant said it was good they played teams outside of Toowoomba.

"You come to places like Warwick to play other teams and sometimes draw teams from Toowoomba," she said.

The two Pittsworth teams did meet in the carnival, what happens in the draw stands.

The presentations were made by Ian Tate from the Warwick Credit Union and Mavis Cooper from the Warwick RSL Memorial Club, the two major sponsors of the two-day carnival.

Warwick East secretary Gloria Brady said the club was pleased with the carnival.

"We had players from Brisbane, Toowoomba, Pittsworth, Tenterfield, Inglewood, The Summit, Clifton and Warwick," Brady said.
