The competition was fierce as local tradies ditched boots for bowls at the seventh annual Tradies v Tradies bowls day.

The event at Barooga Bowls Club served as an end-of-year celebration leading into Christmas.

Started by Darrell Bowden and Leanne May in 2010, the day saw 18 tradesmen from the Cobram-Barooga area compete across six teams.

The Miller Pipe and Civil team took the honours on the day, Bowden Homes was runner-up and the Pipes, Bombs, Bikes and Trucks team claimed bronze.

Organiser Colin Campbell said the event brought different trades together in a social night.

‘‘Every year we get such a great bunch of guys who all enjoy the night,’’ he said.

‘‘A lot of tradesmen work either on their own or in a small company, so this gives them a chance to have a Christmas party.’’

Campbell thanked Barooga Bowls Club, Barooga Hotel and Dean Miller for their support, as well as local businesses for donations toward prizes.
