President’s Welcome

Welcome to the 2019-2020 bowling season

As usual we have a full |program with something for everyone, and have worked around Auckland centre and National events to provide the maximum opportunities for play The social bowls events started last season return to entice new bowlers to the club and provide variety for existing members.

Following on from the AGM the only separate men’s and women’s events will be the championship singles, pairs, triples, and the handicap singles. All other events will be combined and to this end gradings, handicaps and selections will be done on a whole club basis.

A further change is that we are dispensing with the entry envelope system for club events. Simply put your name on the board in the hall and pay your entry fee on the first day of play.

Apart from the club competitions we have a full program of open tournaments with an increased number of Wednesday tournaments and a repeat of last year’s very successful Melbourne cup Tournament. Moving the Denny Yates into winter was successful |and will be repeated.

The club runs on volunteer effort and any extra help is always appreciated. If you would like to assist in some way, or just think you would like to assist, please let me know. Also if something obvious needs doing or if it looks like someone could use a hand don’t be shy.

We want the club to be responsive to your needs so if you have any ideas for improvements please don’t keep them to yourself. Put them in writing so that we can give them proper consideration Best wishes for an enjoyable season’.
