Bowls Notes 7th October 2016

posted 8 Oct 2016, 21:47 by Bowls Committee
On Friday 7th October, the Bundaberg Ladies Bowling Club celebrated our 75th Birthday..  As we will be amalgamating with the Bundaberg Men’s Club at the end of the year,  and we invited the men and all Clubs in the District to a game of mixed triples in the morning followed by  a Bar=b=que lunch,    It was gratifying to see so many bowlers turn out for this event.   In all we had 28 teams on the green.     President Carol thanked all of the members for their cooperation and assistance through out the years and Patroness Beris also said how much she has enjoyed being Patroness and thanked all there for their friendship over the years.  A huge birthday cake was cut by Patroness Beris and Life Member Ann Barnard.    Life members Joan Green and Shirley Heidke attended the Luncheon along with Jill Dunn, Joan Jones and Pam Maitland.   A Photographic Book was presented to President Carol which contains photos of yesteryear and also of 2015/2016 events.  Also celebrating a birthday was the ‘patriarch’ of our Club, Mr. Henry Bowtell, who turned 94 this week and who plays bowls at least 3 times a week in order to keep fit,  I wonder if there are any bowlers older than Henry still playing bowls in Bundaberg.

President of the Bundaberg  Mens District,  Mr. John Kemp presented Ann Barnard with a 25 year Meritorious Award, from Bowls Queensland for her service to the Bundaberg Ladies Club over the years.  Ann was suitably surprised to receive such an award and thanked those present .
