North West Open Bowls Team
On 4th May, for the first time in a long time, Farrer took a team of students to compete in the North West Open Bowls Competition in Quirindi.
In order to make up a team to compete in this competition, Farrer Year 11 students Will Hamel, Gilly Thwaites and Lachlan Woods volunteered to play in Competition Bowls for the first time to support Year 7 student State Bowls player; Jacob Martin.
The Year 11s were briefed on the rules of play by Jacob while travelling to the competition. The Farrer team took the lead at the end of 5 Ends but ended up losing to Quirindi High School 17/12 at 18 Ends. Farrer support officer; Reg Straw treated the boys to a Chinese feed after their efforts and a job well done!
