THE Mackay representative sides begin their quest for success in the Queensland District Sides competition today on the Sunshine Coast.

The menCOs side will be playing at Coolum Beach Bowls Club and should meet with some success against the Darling Downs, Condamine and Cunningham in their opening three matches.
