Early Bird Winner No. 3
Keith Bowling Club was the third and last of our Early Bird Prize Winners for 2022 to get their $200 worth of beer, kindly donated by our long standing brewery Partners, Lion, Coopers and CUB.
Secretary, Gordon and Kevin, who helps out in all areas of the Club, were on hand to receive the prize.
We couldn't have picked a better time to visit with lots of tournaments taking place and the Club was abuzz with activity.
Also, the recent downpours that had dampened the occasion the previous day had faded away for the sun to make a welcome appearance.
With a healthy membership of around 60, Keith is a vibrant and active Club that is constantly looking at ways to stay fresh and interesting.
Kevin's wife Yvonne is Club President and she explained that only a few years ago, the Club was struggling with only a small number of playing ladies.
They tried a couple of ideas including "Come and Try" and "Bring A Friend" events. We are pleased to report there are now 21 ladies regularly taking part in competitions, only 2 less than the men at 23. With around an additional 12 casual / social members, the Club is going great.
Their Barefoot Bowls evenings are extremely popular amongst Keith locals, when teams from other sporting clubs like the golf club and cricket club, plus school teachers and kids, pharmacists and more, take part.
Competition amongst the teams is fierce!
Thanks so much for the warm welcome from everyone at Keith and enjoy your prize!
