Club President Sam Rees welcomed players back onto the green and said, “A pleasant afternoons roll up was a great way to get the bowling year rolling.”

A very social and diverse group of different genders, ages and experience levels came together Thursday afternoon to play the green “in”.

The serenity of the last 7 weeks was interrupted by good natured banter and friendly competition as 50 bowlers took to the green overlooking the Karuah river.

A deeply satisfied greenkeeper Leon Post said, “Excellent growing conditions had meant that the green had really grown back to be at its very best.”

The bowling year kicks off early this time around and while the social days every Tuesday and Thursday will continue, the more serious competitions will get under way soon.

Max Rosser, the men’s club Games Secretary said, “While the club will fill its usual 2 pennant teams in 2019, they are on the cusp of being able to form a 3rd team, so any bowlers in our area that would like to play pennant in one of a variety of grades, should come on down as there are spots available.”

An exciting bowling year beckons and players across the skill and experience spectrum are preparing and sharpening their skills.

A junior team from the local primary school will start to form in the new year to compete in a district schools competition.

Ladies and Men’s Club Championships will be getting underway soon and as detailed above, Pennant teams will soon start to form and practice.

Club Secretary Trevor Davies said, “The Club extends its very best of Christmas wishes to all its members and to all bowlers in its district.”

“The RSL is pumping with Christmas visitors, there are plenty of fish and crabs in the river and our green is back at its very best, and we are looking forward to a great 2019 coming up – see you at Karuah,” he said.
