Wallangarra Grandfather wins large keno prizeKerry Wilson is a resident of Wallangarra who decided to play a keno game at the Tenterfield Bowling Club.

Michael Jones is the manager of the Bowling Club and he said that everyone at the club was very happy that the win at taken place at the club. Jones stated: “It is good to have the money won by a local guy. He’s a regular, comes in here every couple of weeks and always has a go on the keno.”
Everyone at the club was overjoyed, according to Joy King, who was at the bowling club when the win took place. King stated: “Everybody was congratulating him and shaking his hand. It was such a great atmosphere at the club and such great news for the town. With the economy the way it is there are some people really struggling, so it is so nice to have some good news like this for a change. If I had a win like that I’d want to tell the whole world about it.”
