Day 2 - 27 October, 2018


A great day of bowls today and it was great that Chiang Mai could be competitive against the more experienced Aussie bowlers. However, there is a long way to go and the lead by Chiang Mai is a very narrow 8 points.

Bowl of the day was played by Robyn of Goulburn who turned a loss into a win with a 6 pointer on the last end. Fantastic bowls
