Rum Jungle Classic 2016


Annual Rum Jungle Bowls Classic 2016

The very successful annual Rum Jungle Classic was held on Sunday the 17th of April 2016. The event comprised of 12 teams of bowlers from Darwin, Nightcliff, Humpty Doo, Katherine and Rum Jungle Clubs with each team playing two games. At the end of the day two teams were tied for first which led to a unique Rum Jungle play off (only after paper, rock scissors was discarded as an option). The eventual champions were from the Darwin Club being Ray Quall, Harry McCallion, Jan Palazzi and John Meneguzzi. The worthy runner ups were from the Nightcliff Club being Brenda Kilburn, Pat O’Neill, John Leafe and Joan Garner.

Overall, the event received extremely positive feedback from all participants. An indication of its growing success is the number of bowlers who turned up just to support the event without being able to get a game on the green.

Thank You -  This event would be impossible without the support of local businesses and the Rum Jungle Bowls Club would like to thank the following sponsors: Coomalie Community Government Council, Coomalie Air, Pandanus Caravan Park, The Football & Cricket Shop (Winnellie), Jimmy at Zebra Stone, Impact Crossfit Training & Conditioning (Karatha) & local artist Wudjitjpul. A big thank you also to Haggis and Mick from Ironbark for assisting in ongoing maintenance of the grounds and to Mick for cooking the BBQ on the day.
