Important Dates

Saturday 17 July 2021


Just when life on the bowling green appeared to be back to normal we have copped a big hit with another Covid lock-down. This edition of “Staying in Touch’ was originally earmarked to celebrate our  blue ribbon Zone Singles Champions but those finals are now on hold until we know the extent of the lock-down. Once things become a little clearer the bowls programme for the remainder of the year will have to be re-worked at State and Zone level. Even though Bowls NSW has already  re-scheduled  the State  Pennant finals  back to September there is no guarantee they will proceed if this lockdown is extended for any length of time. The State Championships titles set down from 20-28 August at Ettalong must also be under a cloud.  We will all just have to wait and see how this lockdown unfolds?                                                                                                

 I also have a deep concern for the closure of our Clubs and small businesses. It’s their financial performance  that underpins the stability of our local  communities, so our thoughts go out to all those striving to make a living in these difficult times. On a brighter and happier note, it is my pleasure on behalf of the Executive and fellow bowlers  to congratulate Davistown's RSL and former  President and member of Avoca Beach B C, Dick Love on receiving an OAM in the Queens Birthday Honour List for his services to the Although a little belated, I also take this opportunity to congratulate all our Clubs and members on the positive attitude they adopted towards the recent unification of  the Men’s and  Women’s Bowling Associations at State level. This outcome will significantly strengthen their ability to take the sport forward in coming years.

Stay safe and well and here’s hoping we will all be back on the green in the not too distant  future.
