MEMBERS STATEMENT-BATTLE OF THE FREEWAY BOWLS COMPETITION

Mr FREGON: On another matter, I would like to give a shout-out to the member for Oakleigh for helping me co-host our inaugural Battle of the Freeway bowls competition. The sun shone down on the Parliament bowling green as each club set up for the day. Five clubs joined us on this day from Oakleigh and Mount Waverley districts. We had South Oakleigh Bowling Club, Oakleigh Bowling Club, Murrumbeena Bowls Club, Mount Waverley Bowling Club and Glen Waverley Bowls Club. Mount Waverley played off against Glen Waverley to secure third place and become the local champion, and the final was a hard-fought battle between South Oakleigh and Oakleigh. The finish was so tight that an extra end had to be played to determine the winner. After a nailbiting end, Oakleigh came away with the chockies.
