Joey Glover, Laurie Chew and Braden Chew were a successful trio at the Cowra Business House Bowls event, winning this year's tournament.

Forty two Cowra businesses took part in the 2018 spring edition of the Business House Bowls event at Cowra Bowling Club.

The charity event runs every Thursday night for six weeks twice a year, bringing lots of businesses together to try their hand at lawn bowls.

Some are better than others, but it is all done with the common theme of having fun and supporting our named charity.

Three teams finished undefeated after the six rounds, requiring a 3 way playoff.

JP Plumbing won the first game to advance straight to the final, leaving Dan Parkes Fencing to battle it out with Laurie Chew for the other spot.

Laurie’s team prevailed after some inspiring play by Laurie’s son Braden.

Braden was again to the fore in the final, holding shot with both skips having one bowl each to play.

Laurie showed his class drawing a second shot to put all the pressure on JP’s skip Ben Core.

Ben’s last bowl was a ripper but just sailed past the jack missing it by the barest of margins, handing the final to the team of Joey Glover, Braden Chew and Laurie Chew.

This Charity day has now been rescheduled to Wednesday the 19th of December, due to the wash out on the last Wednesday of November.
