Shirley Prendergast recalls the World Bowls Tournament in Frankston.


It was down here at the City of Frankston. Oh it was tremendous. It was really wonderful. I went every day.


It was really wonderful. It sort of put Frankston on the map, as far as that was concerned. Because we had the venue there, we had everything there, and it was just unbelievable. A lot of work went into it. No, it was very very good really.
