February 17 to March 24 – 6.30 to 8pm
Another very popular Community Bowls event was completed on Wednesday March 24th. A week later than planned, brought about by one cancelled Wednesday nights play due to wet weather.
The Autumn event commenced during a period when the wearing of masks was mandatory. They may have been a bit uncomfortable, but did not detract from competitors enjoyment. Fortunately, it was only for one week.
Twenty eight teams participated with some teams bringing reserves and rotating players each night.
A highlight of the event was St Patricks day, the second last night of this 6 week event. Many bowlers, dressed in green, entered into the spirit of the occasion resulting in a great deal of fun and frivolity, while still being competitive.
The event concluded with 22 raffle prizes being drawn on the final night, including a super raffle to the value of $500 sponsored by The Back And Neck Bedshop. Finally, the overall winners were awarded the events perpetual trophy.
A big thank you to all of our Sponsors, BBQ cooks and lady volunteers, who presented superbly prepared burgers and sausages, with salads, washed down with a variety of beers and other beverages. Also to the member helpers for setting up and tidying up after each of the 6 nights.
Let’s not forget our event organiser, Ross Mackenzie, who did a fantastic job in running the event.
Comments received from the bowlers were most complimentary for such a well organised event and enjoyable experience.
The Spring Community Bowls is scheduled to commence on October 13th. Further information will be posted about the beginning of September.
