Travelling Bowler – OCTOBER Update.
As I sit here tonight writing the October write-up it is with joy that I can hear it raining outside. While rain may not be the thing we want when we have an important carnival or event happening, I can only imagine how happy our bowlers out in the country are at some relief from the drought. Hopefully this rain with be wide spread and do some good for the crops and the animals.
Ross and I are looking forward to our weekend at the Durong Bowls Club in Queensland. Any travelling bowlers who will be in the area are most welcome to join us on Saturday 14th October for the ‘chicks in pink’ Breast Cancer Charity Day. Everyone welcome. Contact Ian on 4668 8700 to put your name down for a game.
Stanthorpe Bowls Club successfully launched the Fast Fours Bowls Carnival on Friday 29th September for their major sponsor Churches of Christ Care. Money from the day was donated to the Farm Hand Charity at the same time. It was wonderful to see players from Nambour, Warwick, Tenterfield, Brisbane join with local Stanthorpe bowlers for a very enjoyable day. With a prize pool of $3000 plus prizes on offer the Stanthorpe Bowls Club looks forward to next years event.
Don’t forget to watch the 2018 events Calendar for details of next years event.
Members of the Durong bowls Club held their annual “pink bras” day on Saturday 14th October 2017. People from Rockhampton, Childers, Biggenden, Kingaroy, Jandowie, Warwick, Ironpot and surrounding areas all came together for a great day of bowls and raised around $2,800 for the Mater Hospital’s ‘chicks in pink’ Foundation. Another terrific effort from everyone involved in the day.
Special thanks to Hook, Sonya and the community of Ironpot who participated for the first time and not only donated an auction item which raised $120 but also contributed a further $300 Donation. Many thanks.
The Durong Bowls Club will be hosting their ‘blue jocks’ day in February 2018, so travelling bowlers put this on your calendar for next year and get set for a fabulous weekend. There is plenty of FREE parking for caravans and RV’s.
