Harri returns from the Nationals

Harri arrived home on Thursday, from the Disabled Ten Pin Bowling National Tournament in Hobart. Over the 3 days Harri bowled 19 games in singles, doubles and trio's, and 4 games for QLD Cole Cup Team on Wednesday. The first weekend saw Harri struggle to adjust to the climate (cold Hobart), the conditions (very crowded venue) and the venue itself. Most of his games coming under his average. By the Tuesday Harri had relaxed more to the conditions and acclimatised better. His scores had lifted, but he was still struggling with the different oil pattern on the lanes. So a decision was made to change his setup with the bowling ramp mid tournament. Come Wednesday Harri was making his average scores more easily and represented Queensland well in 4 of the 7 matches he was selected to bowl in. The team struggled to be at their best and finished out of the standings at the end of the tournament. The Open State Team however came home with the trophy.

On one of our days off we were able to partake in a bit of sight seeing around Hobart. We dropped into the visitor information centre where this photo was taken. It was a great week.
