Our Champions - Dunn Cup

Champions produced at the Jubilee Bowling Club have made the club one of the foremost in North Queensland.

Jubilee has collected the most treasured trophy, the Dunn Cup, 13 times since the club began, the first time being in 1957 after only five years of competition.

Champions produced by the club have been numerous, among them Les Newman, Hugh Wyper, Bill Jones, H Vickers and F Lancashire.

The Dunn Cup was donated by the late Samuel Dunn of Home Hill and wad first played for at Home Hill Bowls Club on New Years Day 1937. The first competition was won by Ayr Bowls Club.

In this annual competition, each club from the district is represented by its best fours combination, with the overall winner claiming the right to host the event the following year. Jubilee has a proud record in this prestigious event.

The long drought since the last win in 1977 was all but broken in 1998 when our team of Scott Cannon, Jim Sanders, John Davidson and Aldo Amisano were beaten in the final 24-22 by the final bowl bowled by Ingham skip Ren Cantatore on the final end. Officials described the game as one of the best finals in many years.

Eventually, the drought was broken with Dave Wells, Terry Hocking, Isaac Gardner and Ben Cribbin bringing home the cup in 2010. This was followed the very next year with Justin Cribbin, Terry Hocking, Isaac Gardner and Ben Cribbin doing the honours and retaining the 2011 cup.

It took a further four years to win it again but never the less Dave Goode, Doug Kleinhans, Jim Sanders and Justin Cribbin did the club proud once more with a wonderful win in 2015. PHOTOS
