Last Friday, 1st April 2022 we celebrated yet another successful bowls season at our End of Season Presentation Dinner at the Clubrooms. Close to sixty VIPS, sponsors, members, and their partners attended with apologies from last-minute sickies.

Sponsors included Sue Cuz and Rachel Morgan from Phil Hoffmann Travel, David Zang from Terry White Chemplus, Hahndorf, Tori Evans from Toriadesigns, and Nikki Druwit from Beerenberg.
