An Appeal for Photographs

Di Harder is our intrepid photographer but she can’t be everywhere all the time. If you take photos around the club that you are prepared to share with our readers, please send them to Ken Sleeman, David Bailey or Di Harder for consideration. We can not promise that we will show all of them (nothing on a bearskin rug) but send them in just the same.


On a bit of a sad note, the Justices Bowling Club has been forced to dissolve due to a lack of members. So those of us who enjoyed the annual visit from them will be disappointed this year. The Justices have been visiting and playing against Clearview for a number of years now and it was always a nice social day out as well as a good game of bowls.


My Tip

Take a peek at the calendar (under “Club News”). There is a lot going-on as our Bowls Committee get to grips with the 2018/19 season.
