meeting held on Monday 30th September downstairs in the clubhouse at
There will be a couple of training sessions
for those of you who will be new to carpet bowling and these will be held in
the first week of October.
The cost to join for the winter sessions
will be $30.
There will be two aggregate leagues, one
held on Tuesday afternoons commencing at 1.30pm and starting on 8th
October. The other aggregate league will be on Friday mornings at 9.30am
starting on 11th October.
Each aggregate will cost $5 to join and a
playing fee of $1 each time you play. These funds will be distributed as prize
money at the end of the first session just before the Christmas break and at
the end of the second session in the early spring.
In addition to the aggregates there will be
informal carpet bowling held on Wednesday afternoons at 1.30 pm and on Saturday
mornings at 9.30 am.
Coffee will be available for the morning
games, and cookies provided if volunteers sign up to bring these. We will discuss this more fully at the
initial meeting on 30th September.
Ed Hooper will be organizing the Wednesday
and Saturday ‘drop in’ games and Geoff Wells will be in charge of the Monday
and Friday aggregates.
Come and have some fun and keep in touch
during the winter.

On Wed Sept 11th and Thurs Sept 12th we held our 2019 with 10 members signed up. The 4 bowlers who advanced to the Championship playdowns on the 2nd day were: Verna Booth, Sandra Burnett, Linda Palm and Linda Cooper. Linda Palm and Verna Booth battled in an extremely close match with Linda Palm coming out on top and winning the Championship. Sandra Burnett won the battle for 3rd place over Linda Cooper.
A big thanks to Gaston Essiambre, Larry Todd, Franco Canil, Harald Hendess and Ken Cronin for volunteering to be the Markers for the event and helping with the set up and clean up.
By now, most of you have probably seen the inside of our ‘new’ Clubouse
and I’m sure you’ll agree that it looks terrific!!
On very short notice, there was a great turn-out of volunteers to
repaint the main hall of the Clubhouse, the window frames and some of the
doors. It is estimated that 150 hours of volunteer time was donated by our
members. Thanks to the following teams who helped with the project. A special
thank you to Martha McArthur and Hilary Callihoo who were the team leads
throughout the project. The place looks wonderful!!!

On MONDAY AUGUST 26, 2019 there will be NO REGULAR BOWLING. Work is being done on the parking area and the Parking Lot has to be closed in order for the work to be completed.
If anyone still wishes to be at the Club on the 26th, and the spots along High Street aren’t available, members may park in the metered stalls on North Bluff Road. Members should place their “Mann Park Parking Pass” on their dash. The City will not be enforcing payment at those stalls at that time.
Because the Monday aggregate’s last game was scheduled for the 26th, it will be played on Wed August 28th instead at the regular afternoon draw. That afternoon draw game will cost $1 for everyone who bowls.
