ROLL UP: Biloela Bowls Club secretary Roy Gourley and games director Geoff Geall are happy with preparations for this weekend's Amalgamated Mixed Fours tournament.

FIFTY bowlers from throughout Central Queensland will be chasing the $3220 prize pool at this weekend's Biloela Amalgamated Mixed Fours bowls carnival.

Played over two days, teams from Monto, Gladstone, Mt Larcom and Calliope will compete against a strong local contingent on the greens at the Biloela Bowls Club.

Teams compete in a variety of formats, starting with mixed fours on Saturday morning before splitting into men's and ladies' pairs and then reforming for mixed fours on Saturday afternoon.

On Sunday morning, the teams will separate into mixed pairs, before playing the final round on Sunday afternoon as fours again.

The event is in its second year and, while team numbers are down on last year, Biloela Bowls Club secretary Roy Gourley said the level of competition would still be strong.

"We are a little disappointed that we didn't get more teams from Gladstone playing," he said.

"However, there are some good bowlers travelling over from the coast and some of our local in-form bowlers will be chasing the prize money as well."

Before the event, a jackpot fours competition will be played under lights on Friday night.

Teams of four must nominate by 5.15pm, with the bell ringing at 5.30pm to start play. This event is open to all.
