Chalambar's Karen Brennan has been invited to play in the world's richest pairs bowls event.
Moama Bowling Club will host the women's event, where 48 pairs will come together to try their luck at the eye-catching top prize of $10,000.
Entry to the event is by invitation only, and some of the best players from around the world compete in the rural Victorian event.
During the four day competition with two games of 18 ends, players will play two bowls and then swap ends with their partners and swap again.
"There are a number of different ways you can play pairs," Brennan said.
"It's a round-robin style of competition - so there's a lot of bowls to be rolled.
"I don't mind the two by two by two by two type of pairs - It allows you to keep a close eye on your bowls and where they are all placed near the kitty."
2019 will be Brennan's third year of attending the prestige event, the second time teaming up with Lake Boga's Lisa Critten.
"Lisa is a great bowls player - a few years ago she got runners up in the Vic Open singles event," Brennan said.
"We have a great team dynamic which keeps growing the more we play with each other.
"To gain the invitation your results on previous years are considered. Organisers also keep an eye on how you perform throughout the year."
Brennan said there were talented bowlers who attend the event.
"There are Australian team representatives and international representatives," she said.
"Last year I played against Jo Edwards and Val Smith who are the world champions from New Zealand.
"It's a great opportunity to meet and play against some of the top players in the world.
"Moama has a great set up for bowling and really great facilities. They've done some really big upgrades to their greens."
