The Bowls Club has been in recess since 16 March when organisations across the state and country were advised to do so because of the pandemic.
In that time, Club members have been busy keeping the clubrooms and green maintained. The kitchen has had a thorough clean out and crockery and cutlery surplus to requirements were donated to the Memorial Hall. Isn’t it great when local organisations look after each other!
Meanwhile under the guidance of greenkeeper Bob Allen, the green has had its annual makeover and looks superb. Hopefully the 2019-20 Club Championships can be completed, and the start of the 2020-21 bowls season take place when the go-ahead is given. Usually the season starts the first week in October. We shall see!
The Bowls Club Board endorsed a suggestion from secretary Roz Carstairs that we have a board for recognition of Life Members. This has been done by Valley Trophy Centre and will take pride of place in our clubrooms.
Provisional 2020-21 Office Bearers (subject to ratification at a meeting), are:
President – Graeme Colbert,
Secretary – Travis Baker,
Treasurer – Janet Napier.
Other positions will be filled at the meeting when we have it!
Stay safe and well everyone. We look forward to your return soon.
Boolarra Bowls Club.
