Airlie Beach Bowls Club

Must read

HAPPY New Year to everyone that lives here in paradise, and what wonderful news we have from our board, who are set on making our bowls club a great place for patronage.

Starting with $5 per year membership for all non-dedicated bowlers and some great new food offerings, to be announced shortly.

If you want to come and get discounted drinks etc. all you pay is $5 for 12 months’ membership.

We also hope to announce shortly a major sponsorship for our school children’s program.

It is currently being finalised by our own workaholic Margo Stanley, which will involve Cannonvale State School, Proserpine State School, last year’s winners St Catherine’s School and, of course, the Christian College School.

Last year, our men’s team finished 20 points in front of every other bowls club in our district including the big clubs from Mackay.

So, if you’re keen to learn, free lessons are available at the club from resident coaches Margo Stanley and Mark Mawson.

Don’t hesitate to contact the club where our bar manager, the beautiful Fiona Greener, fresh back from holidays and ready to take on all comers, can help. 

Manny Isgro, Nik Fernbach and John Fielding all had amazing years for the boys, whilst Betty Nicole, Carol Crosbie, Lyn Graham, Betty Whitehorn and Helen Hunt had amazing performances for the girls.

Tony Whitehorn, Rick Galea and Col Morris also did amazing work around the club.

Some very sad news came with the passing of Bob Ward, just before Christmas – he will be very sadly missed and not having him around will be hard for all members. 

Bobby Ward is probably already arranging bowls games in heaven.
