28 Bowls In Focus Meet the HT651,the best looking trolley bag on the green! 2010 Austalian Open Singles Champion See henselite.com.au for all details and stockists Internal trolley handle system to prolong the life of the handle and the bag Front pockets for accessories Fits four bowls secured with Velcro straps Large expandable pocket for jacket or jumper Joyce Lindores Sized to suit most lockers The Sunraysia quintet of Betty Minter and Patty Russell from Nangiloc, Merbein's Delwyn Milner, Joy Jones from Mildura and Gwen Sum- merfield from the Workingman's Club overcame the odds to claim victory in last month's 5th Betty Collins District Challenge at Kew Heights Bowls Club. Happily sponsored by Bendigo Bank, this prestigious challenge series honours the lifetime contribution to the sport of Betty Collins OAM, a proud Kew Heights bowler; life member and past president of the Victorian Ladies Bowling Association; former president of the Australian Women's Bowls Council; and life member and immedi- ate past president of World Bowls, the global governing body of the sport. And perhaps the trek undertaken by the Sunraysia ladies to be at the event truly amplifies the esteem that Betty and her tribute tournament holds within the bowls fraternity. Firstly they were driven to the Mildura station, caught a V-Line bus to Bendigo, a train to Mel- bourne and a tram to Kew, while the last kilometre was on shanks's pony. A total of thirty-four representative teams arrived at Kew Heights to com- pete in this year's showcase and after eight rounds - two of each discipline - four teams topped the tally board with six wins apiece. However, the end result was always in the balance as the top placed Districts jockeyed for position during the annual two-day medley's closing stages. Going into the eighth and final round Sunraysia, who were overnight leaders after day one, sat in third place behind Gippsland and Bellarine, with former dual winners Yarra positioned marginally behind.
