Centenary State High School experience and coaching program.

It was such a rewarding experience, for us and the young students to spend some 8 weeks playing and learning about the game of lawn bowls. Some students and their parents have since joined the Club or had a go.

We look forward to doing it all again and perhaps expanding the scope.

Some very favourable feedback has been received following the ABC radio broadcast that can be reviewed at the following link:

Gold Cup Day 2019

A very successful and fun afternoon was held at the Club on Saturday, 11th May.

It was the Gold Cup Day organized by Brian Hampson and financed by him with assistance from Bob Henderson and Seasons Retirement Village. These days have been run since 2011 and always raise funds for a charity of Brian’s choice. This year it was the Motor Neurone Disease Association and proceeds from the raffle and a top up contribution from the Club enabled a cheque for $1000 to be presented to them.

Brian did the team selections and informed Members that they were to play as selected and no discussion would be entered into. This provided a lot of fun as skips found they were leading and leads found they were playing as a skip. The game was played in the Wednesday format – two games with the first a qualifying round and the second deciding the winners. Amazingly, the margins in the second game were not large, the winners had a plus 9 and a plus 8.

The players were well fed with a hamburger lunch and pancakes, jam and cream for afters together with some Vege chips. A big thank you to the volunteers who continue to assist on our special days.

The Winners of the Winners were Linda Austin and Dan Baldwin with a margin of +9. They each received a fruit tray and $30. The Winners of the Losers were Paul Flood, Adrian Carretta and Phuong White with a margin of +8. They each received a meat tray and $20.

Peter, from the MNDA, gave a short talk about the disease and the high cost of providing care and equipment for sufferers. He was very appreciative of our Club Members’ ongoing support of their association.

The raffle was then drawn and many of those present won prizes. Brian assured them that those prizes won by others would be personally delivered by his helper.

All in all, a very successful and entertaining afternoon enjoyed by all participants.
