From the President – December 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.

Membership Fees
A reminder to all members that fees are now due for the 2017 year. There will be no increase to fees for next year, meaning annual subscription remains at $500 (or $125 quarterly).

Please pay at Reception by 31 December 2016.
2017 Pennants
Your Management Committee has accepted the recommendation of the Competition Panel for two pennant grades for the 2017 season. The two grades will be a Grade 5 and Grade 6 side. This decision was based on 31 members indicating their desire to play pennants and their availability throughout the season.Again, for those members who are yet to complete the 40 bowl test, I strongly encourage you to do so. You can download a copy of the 40 bowl instruction sheet and form from the Koala Blog or by clicking here.

Completing the test takes between 30 and 45 minutes and can be done at any time the green is open.Key dates and events
Our 2016 Mixed Christmas Luncheon will be held this Sunday 11 December 2016 at 12 noon. We have a full house of 100 members attending and I look forward to seeing everyone there.

We also have a number of corporate bowls events on over the next few weeks including sessions on:

  • 10 December 2016
