Rush Cup comes home

Celebrating their win at the Iris Rush Cup are (rear l-r) Marie Piccoli (Ballina), Betty Armitage (Ballina), Gloria Martin (Lennox Head) and Noeleen Hawkes (Casino RSM) with (front l-r) Denise Wallace (South Lismore), Margaret Gilson (Alstonville), Betty Hall (Lennox Head), May Gregor (Ballina RSL), Shirley Mazzer (Ballina) and Doreen Bradford (Lismore City).

After a short stay in Tamworth, the Iris Rush Cup returned to familiar surroundings yesterday thanks to the exploits of the North Coast womens bowls team.

The Cup is an annual two-day carnival played between the North Coast and Northern Inland with teams comprising 56 players from each district.

During the life of the Cup it has largely lived on the North Coast and has come back to its rightful home after the local women convincingly won the tournament 25.5 points to 16.5 points.

Congratulations ladies.
