Oh What A Week @ The Hive!

Premier Ladies Team 2018.jpg

How exciting can it get?

Tuesday – First and foremost we had our Ladies Premier Team sting Clayton and get through to the grand final. Never thought that the game of bowls could be so exciting. At the end of a days play, the outcome hinged on the last few bowls of Lyn’s rink with both Lyn and Karen (Dusty) Brennan putting down crackers resulting in a 68/61 victory. Wonderful team effort by everyone including the supporters. The grand final is yours. Go for it. YOU CAN DO IT! Bring home the honey.

Thursday – we had Girls On The Green with six new ladies enjoying their introduction to bowls together with a return visit from 8 of the Mambourin ladies. Most of us take so much from granted. It is mind blowing to see the pleasure that these impaired ladies have derived from being able to get onto the green and participate in a sport using our Junior Jack Attack kit. Several of these ladies had never participated in any sport previously which attests to the fact that our sport is suitable for all ages, abilities and cultures. Win/Win.

Friday – we had around 30 mums and bubs at Bowling With Babies. What a hoot to see so much young blood on the greens. Whoever would have thought? And they love it and would like to continue post the pilot program. Win/Win.

And top it off we had 50+ on the greens for Friday Night @ The Hive. Our message is getting out there. We are a community club open to our diverse community. Our doors are open. Not only a potential source for new bowlers but a positive effect on club revenue not only for bowling but increased bar and raffle takings. Win/Win.

Word of mouth advertising is the best advertising that the club can get so it is our hope that every visitor goes away with a positive image of our club. It is up to each of us to ensure that visitors are made feel welcome and that we offer a hand of friendship to new faces arriving at the club.

Over the past few weeks our club has featured on the Bowls Victoria and WyndhamCity Twitter sites and received likes from Bowls Victoria, Bowls Australia and bowls clubs near and as far away as the UK which is great exposure “for the little bowls club hidden in the park at the end of the main street”.

Let’s keep the bowls rolling. Each and every member has a role to play.

Health & Mobility – Bowlers Arm Event

Sunday 19th – Another great day @ The Hive where we had 48 players from North, South, East and West competing in the Bowlers Arm 2 bowl triples tournament  sponsored by Health & Mobility. We had teams from as far as Yallourn, Cranbourne, Bendigo, Belmont and Rosamond and lots from in between. A most enjoyable  day was had by all.

The oldest bowler was our own Maurie Weston who is 97 years young. It is testament to the bowlers arm that both the aged and those with a disability are still able to enjoy their games. We are all so fortunate that with the aid of our bowlers arm we are still able to get out onto the green and enjoy both competing and socialising with friends.

Coaching in the use of the arm is available @ The Hive.  Anyone interested in bowling with the aid of an arm is welcome to contact the club on 9741 3229.

Check out the Health & Mobility website for your needs be it, health wise or  for your bowling equipment.
