Local Bowler conquers Everest: John Wilkie was part of the winning team of the Everest of Bowls Pro-Am recently at Dudley Park Bowling and Recreation Club. John was fortunate to win his entry to the competition via a raffle and be partnered with Jesse Norhono, a NSW bowler who plays internationally; his most recent international success gold in the 2017 Hong Kong International Singles and Pairs events. John and Jesse played in sync very well for such a short acquaintance, and won their pool in the Everest Pro-Am, which had 48 teams overall, and this gave them the win in the whole event.
