Craig Donaldson’s team was simply too strong for its opponents Lennie Frail, Ross Kelly, Michael Ahoy and ‘Rummy’ Cutmore, leading comfortably from start to finish to take the 2017 Park Beach Major Fours Championship..
Craig led his team from the front, and was well supported by Brett Wellard, who is the Gaming and Beverage Manager at PBBC and a 2016 Pairs champion, 2015 Minor Singles winner Greg Campbell, and PBBC apprentice greenkeeper Harley Kirkland, who joined the club last year from Dubbo. Harley was a member of the winning team in the Alan Buchan Memorial Fours at Park Beach in January.
Craig Donaldson was recently appointed as Regional Bowls Manager in North East NSW, and will service 107 bowling clubs Kingscliff to Port Macquarie.
