TWO RNSWBA awards were presented at the Harbord Bowling club's presentation night by Zone president, Dennis Taylor.
 
The recipients were Peter (Chopper) Gledhill the merit badge and Brian Brook, the tie pin. 
 
The merit badge is regarded by the Bowls NSW as their highest award, generally in recognition of a bowler's services to the sport.
While no less meritorious, the tie pin specifically recognises a bowler's services to his particular club.
 
"As zone president, I personally recommended Peter for the award to Harbord president, Paul Myers, based primarily but not exclusively on the outstanding success of the zone's post sectional pennant play offs, which involved all seven pennant grades over the August weekend.
"President Paul fully endorsed the suggestion, particularly when taking into account Peter's organisational skills and personal involvement," said President Dennis.
 
FOOTNOTE: It's reasonable to assume that the majority of new bowlers, i.e. those who have joined a particular club over the past 10 years or so, would only be aware of the management structure of their particular club. If it's what's referred to as a "two tier", then it would consist of a board of directors whose primary responsibility is the management of the licensed club.
The second "tier" are the men's and women's bowling clubs and possibly subsidiary clubs, such as golf, cricket etc., who while primarily autonomous, liaise with the board of directors, as and when required.
 
Conversely, a "one tier" club, such as Harbord, is totally responsible for both aspects, the management and the men's bowling club. The women's bowling club, is a subsidiary club and has the conventional structure of president, etc.
 
As a consequence, the responsibilities of a board of directors of a "one tier" club are effectively two fold, and can be quite onerous. 
 

EH, STEADY ON CHIEF
