THE Fiji men's squad members bowed out of the Sonaisali Island Resort-sponsored Sunny West Bowling Carnival fours event at the Nadi Sports Club yesterday.

The team of Arun Kumar, Santok Singh, Abdul Kalim and Dan Lum On went down to the combination of Samuela Tui, Jona Koroitamana, Phil Taylor and Sandra Taylor 20-4. They threw in the towel in the 13th over.

The national ladies squad members of Litia Tikoisuva, Radhika Prasad, Doreen O'Conner and Sala Gukivuli defeated Mohammad Harun Khan, Rodney Salisbury, John Goodwin and Salesh Kumar 18-13.

Semesa Naiseruvati's team of Mohammed Shorab Khan, Murray Wright and Jare Josaia defeated Bobby Prasad's team which included Maria Patel, Loretta Kotoisuva and Raju 22-10.

David Aitcheson with Mohan Lal, Som Padayachi and Kushal Kumar beat Kinsley Obst, Darry Slatter, Kathy Obst and Sue Slatter 24-13.

Naiseruvati, Aitcheson and Tui's teams won all the games during the pool stages.

Goodwin who is the oldest player at the carnival aged 83 years said he was enjoying every bit during his stay.

"The competition is fierce," said the Torquay Bowling Club player from Victoria, Australia.

"I have been a member of the club for the past 15 years. I started the sport a bit late after my retirement from work and I love the sport.

"The greens here are good and the hospitality of the people is great."
