Wimmera Legacy bowls tournament set for Saturday

HORSHAM City and Sunnyside bowling clubs will host the annual Wimmera Legacy Bowls Tournament on Saturday.

Wimmera Legatee and organiser Bill McGrath said people could still enter a team.

He said the event would start at noon.

"It should be a very good, fun day that's what we're aiming for," he said.

"The Sunnyside and Horsham City bowls clubs will do a magnificent job of running it."

Legacy raises money to support the families of deceased and incapacitated veterans.

Mr McGrath said he was hopeful more bowlers would enter for the two-bowl male and female triples tournaments before entries closed tomorrow night.

"We'd like to have another 15 to 20 entries," he said.

"We would like to think we can raise about $3000 on the day."

With sponsors including Priceline, the RSL and Colin Morrell - who has handcrafted the trophies -  Mr McGrath said there would be plenty of prizes up for grabs.

"There are more prizes than you can poke a stick at," he said.

"Any bowler who doesn't get a prize will be very unlucky."

The tournament is one of three major fundraising events for the year, alongside a golf day and the Legacy Badge week.
