Zone 9 - Sydney Northern District Bowls
GREAT RESPONSE FOR NBE
BOWL'S GRASS ROOTS RECEIVES
A LONG OVERDUE BOOST
SEVENTY TWO new bowlers have registered for the Zone's inaugural New Bowler Event to be held at Harbord Bowling club on Wednesday, 27th February with the opening ceremony at 9.40 a.m.
This enterprising venture by the Zone and the ensuing response from 20 clubs is most encouraging, more particularly as it flouts the popular belief that the sport is past it's used by date.
The NBE's organiser, Dennis Taylor, supplied player numbers from the following clubs: Asquith (3) Avalon (3) Balgowlah (3) Belrose (4) Dee Why (2) Harbord (9) Killara (3) Lane Cove (6) Manly (3) Mosman (9) Neutral Bay (3) Newport (3) North Manly (1) North Sydney (1) Pittwater Memorial (4) Seaforth (3) St Ives (4) Turramurra (2) Warrrawee (3) Warringah (2).
The format will be 12 rinks of fours skipped by experienced volunteer bowlers, many of whom play in the top pennant grades.
When the event timetable such as teams and draw are finalised, it will be forwarded to clubs via emails and available on the zone web site.
