Churchill Bowls Club

The Churchill Bowls Club will be holding a bowls extravaganza during the month of October, with Family Come and Try Days, Barefoot Bowls and Twilight Bowls, all being conducted at our bowls green in Manning Drive Churchill. The aim of the exercise is to promote the game of lawn bowls in Churchill and District and to offer the opportunity for all members of our communities the chance to participate in a recreational and sporting activity.
The Club held it’s 2018/19 A.G.M on Wednesday August 8, with G. Turpin, L. Van Den Ham, D. Thomas, M. Newton and S. Turner all being elected as new committee members for the next 12 months. Our congratulations to these new office bearers.
The club has been conducting its Winter Triples Tournaments over the past few months involving bowls clubs from all over the Latrobe Valley. This has been the clubs first foray into this type of competition and has turned out to be a very successful exercise so far. Our thanks to our Tournament organisers, M. Newton and S. Turner who put in many long hours organising the teams, fixtures and logistics required to run these events. Our thanks to the ladies, who in conjunction with our Tournament organisers, ensured the success of these activities by working so hard in the kitchen preparing and serving the lunches.
The 2018/19 West Gippsland Bowls Division Lawn Bowls season commences in October with Churchill once again representing our town in the pennant competition. We hope to improve on last years’ performances where we finished on top of the ladder, however, we were defeated in the finals.
The Churchill Bowls Club will be conducting a Trivia Night on Friday November 16, at a venue in Churchill which is still to be organised, the location will be finalised in the next week and published in the next issue of the Churchill News. The format will be tables of 10, at $10.00 per person, a light supper consisting of finger food will be supplied free of charge, drinks will be at bar prices. Good prizes assured.
Our Thursday night Indoor Bowls is still attracting good crowds. If you’re looking for some social interaction and a fun night out, come along and be part of the action. To enable games to get underway by 7.15pm it is requested participants be there by 7.00pm. The night generally concludes around 9.30pm.
