The popular Cullen Shield, Nambour Bowls Club’s annual interclub night bowls competition originated in 1991 when Gerald Cullen, principal and owner of the popular local car dealership A.Cullen & Son, agreed to support this innovative night bowls event involving teams from across the Sunshine Coast and Hinterland. Today Brett Cullen leads the Nambour based dealership team renowned for its motor vehicles and services.
The event involves club sides from across the Sunshine Coast and Hinterland areas comprising two teams of open fours participating in a round-robin style competition with finals contenders based on sectional results. While the finals placings are based on the combined side scores, night prizes are also awarded to the winning and runner-up teams of four players.

The Cullen Shield, Nambour Bowls Club’s annual interclub night bowls competition, proved popular again this year despite poor weather conditions. Dating back to 1991, the event involves club sides comprising two teams of open fours participating in a round-robin style competition with finals contenders based on sectional results. While the finals placings are based on the combined side scores, each night prizes are awarded to the winning and runner-up teams of four players.
Well known Nambour car dealership company A.Cullen & Son has proudly sponsored the event for many years. On finals night, Dealer Principal Brett Cullen was on hand to witness some of the keenly contested games and to present the major trophies. Brett was impressed with the wonderful atmosphere and enjoyment expressed by all participants on the night and the long history of support for the event from other bowls clubs throughout the Sunshine Coast.
The 2022 competition was split into two sections with the top sides from each playing in the final. On finals night, all of the other sides in the each section played their opposite numbers to battle for third and fourth places.
Kawana Thunder and Maroochy Magic demonstrated why they had dominated their respective sections with a closely contested battle well into both games. However, Kawana Thunder gained the ascendency in the concluding stages to capture the 2022 Cullen Shield.
Winners: Kawana Thunder
Runners-Up: Maroochy Magic
3rd Place: Coolum Beach
4th Place: Palmwoods

Lynda Brownen of the Kawana Thunder was awarded the Ken Ahlstrom Memorial Trophy for nomination as the best player in the final between Kawana Thunder and Maroochy Magic. Congratulations Lynda.

Nambour Bowls Club was one of the foundation clubs involved with the development and launch of this event in 2016 when 24 teams entered the competition. The Club celebrated the opening in style by winning the “Men’s Open” Title.
Today, the Great Bowls Challenge (known as Gr8 Bowls Challenge) involves both Men’s and Ladies’ Divisions. The competition features sides of eight players comprising two teams of pairs and one team of fours, all teams playing 21 ends. The competition includes teams from Rainbow Beach, Gympie area, Sunshine Coast & Hinterland, Bribie Island Clubs and North Brisbane areas.
This year, however, Nambour players have opted to concentrate on the Bowlers Paradise Hinterland Local League. The Gr8 Bowls Challenge summer competition usually runs for 6 – 8 weeks during February and March each year.
