From the President – April Management Committee Meeting

This morning I wrote to all members to inform them of the decisions taken by your Management Committee at our last meeting. To paraphrase Prime Minister Turnbull, we are innovative, dynamic and nimble at West Pennant Hills Men's Bowling Section. 

2016 Pennants
With the Pennant Season well underway, I am delighted to report that West Pennant Hills is travelling exceptionally well. Let's hope we can maintain our winning streak! A reminder though to all members, please let the Competition Panel know any time you are unavailable. This notification should be in person to one of the Competition Panel members, by phone, or by email.

Competition Panel Vacancy - Expressions of Interest (EOI)
Following the passing of Tony Boughton, there is a need to fill his vacancy on the Competition Panel for the remainder of the Pennant Season. This bowler will be from Grade 6 or 7. Bowlers in Grade 5 need not apply. Appointment to the Competition Panel will be by your Management Committee under the Regulations for sub committee appointments. The EOI will shortly be released on the Koala Blog.

Open Day - Sunday 3 April 2016
What a day! We had just over 70 guests turn up and give our game a go. My thanks to Max Walters, Steve Watson, Michael Schwarcz and their team for leading this project. Your Management Committee is already planning our next Open Day with the lessons learnt our of last Sunday's event.

Upcoming Tournaments
The Turn Around Triples returns to WPH next week with a full compliment of 28 teams contesting. My best wishes to all WPH players participating. I would love to see the glory and accolades stay at WPH. Following this, our 23rd Annual Koala Carnival will be played on Monday 2 May 2016. Please get a team together for what promises to be a great day.

Wrong Bias Box Donation
As members would be aware, we have lost many members of the last few months to cancer, the most recent being Tony Boughton. In honour of their memory, West Pennant Hills will be donating the balance of the Wrong Bias Box to cancer research for this financial year.

Coaching prior to playing competition bowls
As I have noted previously, it was great to see so many members bring their family and friends along last Sunday for our Open Day. However, I want to also remind all members of the importance of coaching prior to people join our Section. By participating in coaching, new members and existing members will find their games more enjoyable. Additionally, if you would like any remedial coaching, please contact Chairman of Coaches, Michael Schwarcz.

Upcoming events
West Pennant Hills is delighted to have been asked by Zone 10 to host one of the 2016 Pennant Finals. This is indicative of the fine job our Section did hosting the Rookies Championship last year. Additionally, WPH will play host to the RNSWBA v. Past Presidents Association Game later in August. 

Game Start Times
Again, some members have been turning up late for bowls or in some cases not at all. It is imperative that members turn up on time for bowls or advise the selectors as soon as possible if they are not attending. Game times for regular social bowls are provided on the Koala Blog or by clicking here.

The full minutes of the meeting will be published on the Koala Blog for all members shortly.
