THE Brighton Bowls & Community Club’s AGM was a fitting opportunity for members to recognise the outstanding achievement of the Division 5 ladies team.
Team members proudly received their Division 5 premiership medallions, Bowls Tasmania South perpetual trophy and premiership plaque from retiring president, Van Ransley, to acknowledge their success which was the Club’s only premiership for the season. As a result of the win, the team has been promoted to Division 4 for the coming season.
Special congratulations on the success of new bowlers Pat Seabourne in her first year and Elizabeth Downward in just her second.
“Our team’s success shows how new bowlers can quickly get great satisfaction and success from participating while making new friends and enjoying being part of a team. There are teams available to accommodate all skill levels from beginners to top division,” Elizabeth said.
The club welcomes new members playing or social, senior of youthful, male or female.
Recent rule changes have been directed to enable people who may have reduced physical capacity to start or maintain their involvement in the game. Bowling arms can eliminate the need for stooping and walkers and motorised scooters are allowed on the greens to reduce the impact of walking up and down if needed.
Those interested should contact the Club on firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time to see the game first hand.
The AGM elected Doug Holloway, president; Elizabeth Downward, secretary; Tony Bartninkaitis, treasurer; Judy Holloway, David Holmes, Glenda Rubock, Louise Cooper, Simon Hartgrove, as board members. Keith Roberts has since re-joined the board.
