Bowling carnival heats up

MORE THAN 100 bowlers across Queensland have come to battle it out in Proserpine this weekend for a total $5000 in prize money.

The NQAS 200s Bowls Carnival is the "biggest event of the year" for the Proserpine Bowls Club and has been running for the last 24 years.

The competition includes 26 teams of four players making up 104 bowlers collectively.

Bowlers have travelled from as far south as Brisbane and as north as Ingham.

Wayne Handley from Proserpine Bowls Club said no team was giving an inch in the pursuit of glory.

"There are some strong Proserpine teams here today and usually it is the stronger teams from Mackay chasing the money," he said.

"That is who we have got to beat."

Bowling will continue until 6.20pm tonight and will re-commence at at 8.45am tomorrow.

Winners are expected to be announced at 3pm Sunday afternoon and will take home a share of the $5000 prize money on offer.
