Fire Emergency Support

Special thank you to Brian Buckingham, Rhonda and Nola, Graham Savage, Graham Evans, Di and Ron Bateman, Tony Stevens, Sharyn and Barry Engel and Roger Mableson.  We managed to fill a trailer load and more and delivered to some very grateful and very tired people at Lobethal RSL Hall.  They are so overwhelmed with donations that they have run out of room.  They now need time to sort it out and get it to those that need it most.  Hold off for any more donations and we may help again in the New Year.  I have heard that 4 Lobethal members have lost their homes.

Thank you again. Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to you all and stay safe.

Sidewood Estate joins as a Sponsor

We are delighted to advise our members that Sidewood Estate has recently joined as a sponsor.  You will note their signs are located aside our green and in the clubrooms.  Added their stubbie holders in your “sponsor show bag”.

Owners and Vignerons, Owen and Cassandra Inglis founded Sidewood in 2004 borne of their uncompromising vision and passion for creating beautifully balanced, elegant, award-winning wines. Despite Sidewood being a relatively new brand in the wine industry, it has already achieved Five Red Star Accreditation from James Halliday and in 2016 became the largest eco-sustainable winery in the Adelaide Hills.

Situated a short drive east from Adelaide in the Onkaparinga Valley, the winery and vineyards are nestled in the cool- climate region of the Adelaide Hills, a heartland of Australian premium wine. The vineyard portfolio includes locations in Echunga, Nairne and Verdun with the original 300-acre Oakbank vineyard also being home to Sidewood’s 40 thoroughbred racehorses that fall under the name, Stable Hill Thoroughbreds.

For those wanting a tasting or purchase, drop into their Cellar Door located at 6 River St, Hahndorf, Wednesday – Sunday from 11.00 am – 5.00 pm.


Parking Top Car Park

The Committee has become concerned about the over-use and overcrowding in the top car park and is concerned that the situation is becoming unsafe.

With that in mind, this car park has been remarked to clearly show two disabled zones and three loading zones, with the remaining spaces marked as reserved parking.

The use of the disabled and loading zones is self-explanatory. The Committee asks that the remaining “reserved” spaces be left for our older and/or less mobile members who would have difficulty negotiating the ramp from the bottom car park.

From now on all able-bodied members are requested to use the bottom car park at all times unless using the loading zones to unload goods etc.

The only exception to this rule will be for the sandwich makers on a pennant day or helpers at night bowls or other functions who may use one of the four spaces in the south-west corner of the car park by the bowls shed if they wish.

The Committee thanks all members in advance for their cooperation in this matter

The Katze Of Hahndorf

You may have noticed walking down the Main Street of Hahndorf the window at No 32 (also Gallery Gifts – a Club sponsor) now has some resident cats waiting to greet you.

Jayne and Peter have opened The Katze of Hahndorf. They have between 12 and 14 cats who just love to spend time with you. For a small entrance fee of $10 ( concession) $12 ( Adult)  come and visit soon.

Entry includes your choice of juice or hot drink -tea, coffee or hot chocolate. They also offer the opportunity to book the area for a small group celebration. Price on application.

A pur-fectly relaxing way to spend some time after a stressful day of bowls!

Great for children from 4 years of age up to the elderly (wheelchair suitable) who have not had contact with animals in their later life.


Is red wine bad for working out?

“In a combination the exercise allows you to shed the pounds in the first place and a moderate amount of red wine could help keep it off.  So don’t swear off the wine and beer entirely if you’ve resolved to hit the gym.  Simply consume in moderation.  The benefits could aid your success.” “excerpt from Google”

Come along on: Thursday 14th November 2019 POSTPONED UNTIL EARLY NEW YEAR





Members are advised that there are now new brochures in the Phil Hoffmann Travel Racks and on the opposite table.

Advice received is that Europe is selling fast so get in for your “Early Bird” savings. Don’t forget to remind your family and friends to mention the Hahndorf Bowling Club when booking.  Any queries contact Graham Evans.
