Sunday saw a host of eager bowlers descend on the club for the opening round of the Sandbelt Men’s Singles. The club’s sole competitive representative was Terry who acquitted himself very well but succumbed to world class opposition in his second match. Equally notable though was the fine job done by the club’s volunteer markers, expertly guided by event organizer Wayne. This was something a little different from their usual lawn bowls experience. There’s a markers’ manual of course, wouldn’t you know it, but more importantly a set of basic principles that a good marker will be mindful of. Apparently our volunteers adhered well to those principles and appreciation for a job well done was expressed by a number of players. Overall this was a successful, well-managed event and no doubt the club will be happy to welcome competitors back next year with a number of slightly more experienced markers ready to play their part.
APBC achieves a clean sweep! Regrettably that’s not a recent success at pennant we’re reporting but it is something worth noting. It’s what the grounds crew achieves on a regular basis in their contest against the autumn leaves. To explore the many ways that members contribute to the smooth running of our club take a look at the Volunteer Opportunities page where some of the areas of voluntary effort are outlined.
