Pelican Waters Quality Meats
We are very pleased to let you know that Pelican Waters Quality Meats have come on board as a sponsor of the club.  We are now purchasing meat vouchers for our raffle prizes from Pelican Waters Quality Meats and in return, they are going to support the club during the Winter Carnival.

Pelican Waters Quality Meats is located in the Pelican Waters Shopping Centre.  We encourage you to visit Russell & Rhianna when you are looking for some great quality meat.  Don’t forget to say you are from the Pelican Waters Bowls Club so they know our members are supporting them.

Congratulations to Barrie Lester

Barrie Lester is a friend of the club and we are very excited to update everyone that Barrie has been selected in the Australia Jackaroos lawn bowls team to compete at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.  We want to wish Barrie all the very best and we are sure he will help bring home a few medals for the Jackaroos.

Stay Hydrated and Reduce the Effects of the Sun
When eventually it stops raining and the sun comes back out, it is important to remember to remain well hydrated when playing bowls.  Please drink plenty of water before you hop on the greens and drink plenty of water while playing.  Also be sure to follow other measures to reduce the effects of the sun.  Check the Club website for suggestions and more information.
