How lucky were we with the weather on Saturday Afternoon, the rain held off and we managed to get a few games of bowls in. It was great to see so many of our members join us for our annual awards party, we tried something a bit different this year, a more informal, family oriented afternoon so we hope you all enjoyed it. We certainly had a lot more people attend this year compared to previous years, and it was great to see all the kids enjoying themselves.

The BIG BIG AWARD of the night was for our current President Lew Hartley. Lew received a Life Membership Award. Lew has played a massive role in our club over the years, a long time committee member and President for 4 years, Lew will be stepping down in his role as President at the AGM this year. Lew will continue to be involved in Junior Coaching at the club, but the club wanted to show how grateful we are for all his hard work & dedication over the years with a much deserved Life Membership Award. It was presented to Lew by one of our other wonderful Life Members John Simmonds.
