Congratulations to Rhett Butler who bowled his way into the quarter finals of the Everest of Bowls 2020.
The major event, held at Dudley Park from 8-11 October, attracted 128 entrants from around the state and consisted of 16 sections of four on each of the first two days. The 32 winners of the sections then moved into Day 3, another day of drawn sectional play, with Rhett winning his section to move into the quarter finals for the fourth and final day.
After Shane Knott (pictured and the eventual Runner Up) got an early lead, Rhett fought his way back to eventually go down 16-21 in a great game.
Jackie Maxwell was one of the 11 women entrants in the event and also won her section on Day 1. Having to wait until Day 3 for her second section draw, she was up against Hailey Packer, Blake Nairn and last year’s winner Russell Bates, with Blake winning the section.
