Bowls Unleashed!

Bowls Australia logo 2

The Bowls Australia 2018-2022 Strategic Plan has been released and is accessible via https://assets.sportstg.com/assets/console/document/documents/16A4AD27-5056-BD3F-FE4442CBC17E61B1.pdf

The document certainly provides some interesting reading as to the way ahead for bowls in Australia.

The Vision Statement states “Our Vision is for all Australians to engage with bowls during their lifetime”.

Participation is now the key. Success is no longer measured purely on the numbers of pennant players at a club. It’s all about getting people through the gate for the first time and accepting that time restrictions and changes in society and family structures may no longer enable participants to commit to long term pennant competitions. Short form games and other options are being developed by the Bowls fraternity who recognise the need for change to get people onto the greens – be is social, community, pennant or barefoot bowls. The old saying that “if you don’t give it a go – you will never know” is so true.

Why not invite your family, friends, colleagues or mates to come down for a roll up? Bowls is the only game that can be played from womb to tomb!   Enquiries for bowls or functions always welcome.  Call The Hive on 9741 3229 to have a chat. We can tailor an event for your needs.

Presentation Night @ The Hive 3/3/18

Presentation Night

A great night attended by around 90 members and their guests. This years format was a winner with increased numbers in attendance to see our club champions presented with their respective trophies.

Congratulations to all who entered in the various events as, without your involvement, there would be no club champions.

Congratulations to all winners and runners up.

And of course thanks go to Carol and Denise for managing the catering for the evening.

Despite the doom and gloom at the beginning of the pennant season with the loss of some of our top players, the club has done well this year under the circumstances providing other members with the opportunity to step up and rise to the occasion which they have done. Go Bees!

Steve Weston spoke on behalf of the Selection Committee and thanked all present for their contribution this season and understanding of the difficult task that the Selectors have had in dealing with the domino effect of covering the absences of players. Hopefully this situation will resolve it’s self next season.

Photos of the evening will be posted once they come through.

In closing I would like to wish our Ladies Premier team all the best in the finals commencing tomorrow.

It’s onwards & upwards @ The Hive.

George Cairns
President
