The champions of the future were on display today at the Burnie Bowls Club on the second-last day of Bowls Tasmania’s Gala Week.

Latrobe’s Blair Fidler and Ulverstone’s Lachlan Thurley remained undefeated throughout the tournament to be crowned the J.

At Penguin, it was sectional play in the Women’s Open Triples Championship with winning skips being Rebecca Van Asch, Rae Simpson, Denise Tanner, Maxine Monson and Alison Venn.

In the Junior Boy’s Singles Championship which commenced at South Burnie yesterday, sectional play winners were Peter Daines, Adam Taylor, Dylan Samphier, Lachlan Thurley, Jonty Hayes, Bailey Bellchambers and Codi Marshall.
