Dumping – A message form the Men’s and Ladies’ Bowling Arms

The Men’s and Ladie’s Bowling Arm have prepared a new policy related to Dumping and we are circulating it to members.

Casual Club Shirts and Jackets
The club is organising to buy some more casual club shirts.  A Navy Blue example can be seen hanging on the merchandise display board near the bowls office.  They also come in White, Black, Royal Blue and Red.  These shirts can be worn around the club to show your support and would be great on mufti days.  They are embroidered with the club logo.  The shirts are great quality and cost just $40.

We are requesting people to write down if you want a shirt so we know how many to order, the colours and the sizes. 

Also, the club is organising some Pelican Waters jackets.  These have zip off sleeves and can be worn as a vest also.  They are toasty warm and ideal for the cooler months, so why not get ready now for next year.

Just see Helen McGlynn if you would like to know more information about either the shirts or the jackets.

Club Merchandise
While on the subject of shirts and jackets, just a reminder that the club has plenty of other merchandise.  We of course have the bowling shirts, but we also have Bucket Hats, Caps, club branded Bowls Cloths, Stubbie Coolers, Club Pins, Hat Bands, Law Books, some club branded Drinking Glasses as well as accessories in the perspex display case on the bar.

If you are interested, just see one of the bar staff.

In conjunction with our good friends at the Neighbourhood Watch Golden Beach, we will be conducting a Come and Try bowls day.  These days are great for helping the Golden Beach NHW get their message out, fostering community spirit, and in the events of past years, we have had one or two new members join the club.  Helen McGlynn is the main contact person within the club.  Please see Helen, or the flyers at the club or club website for more information.  If you know someone who may be interested in coming down and having a try, please let them know.
