Saturday saw the gathering of members for the annual club presentations. In ideal conditions bowlers enjoyed a friendly roll on the greens followed by a light lunch. Following lunch President
Eddy Lee provided a very good summary of what was a very successful year of bowls for the club, before announcing this year’s trophy winners.
Following the bowling awards, President Eddy called members to attention, as he paid tribute to the special contributions made to the club throughout the year by individual members. First was the presentation of the President’s Appreciation Award, which was jointly awarded to Tim McCormack for service as Publicity Officer and Ian Abberley for outstanding performance of his duties as Club Secretary. Eddy then called Steve Hollington forward for recognition of his
efforts throughout the year. As the Assistant Bowls Organiser, Catering Officer and a prominent member of the Committee, Steve has worked tirelessly to ensure the club continues to prosper. Amongst other countless contributions, Steve was the driving force behind our successful Grade 6 Pennant side and has done a remarkable job raising the Club’s profile with developing affiliations with many local businesses. It was with great pleasure and accompanied by a large round of applause Steve Hollington was announced as Clubman of the Year.

Congratulations to trophy winners and all club bowlers on what has been an enormously successful bowling year for our club. Special thanks must go to the committee, especially our Bowls Organiser Garnet Eastment and his assistant Steve Hollington, for their efforts
throughout the year. Many thanks also to all who assisted in making the presentation day a smooth success, particularly our superb caterers Steve Hollington and assistants Sue Rose and Pat Leach.
Wednesday had a healthy turnout of 28 competitors, who enjoyed a friendly round of social bowls in the afternoon sun. On completion, prize winners were announced as:
1st D Goodger & J Edwards
2nd J Newbold & G Hulbert
3rd R Baker, N Shulz & T Wright
Rink 1 through John Edwards was fortunate enough to have a crack at the $490 Jackpot on offer. With a spin matched only by his big smile, John had the crowd vocalising encouragement but alas missed out on snaring the prize. Maybe next time John.
