A sensational day of bowls under clear blue skies provided the perfect day for Central Coast Committee’s first fundraiser for 2023.
Players arrived dressed in their favourite Rugby league colours from all walks of Rugby League Life.
Registration was under way at 8.30am, with the first of the bowlers making their way out for, what is referred to as, a ‘Spider. Meaning, all players congregate at all four sides of the rink, with jack placed in the centre. All bowlers bowl at once with the closest to the jack deemed the winner ,refer pics from drone.
We cannot put on such a great day without the continued support of the Board of Directors and Management of Ettalong Bowling Club who provide us with all the facilities required on the day.We thank them for their continued support.
Lunch was served at 1pm as everyone piled into the room for the all important part of the day Raffles and Auctions. MC Gregg Kable got things under way with Comittee Members Lance , Lyndon , Jock Morris and Brett Smith getting around the floor for the raffle. We thank all our sponsors for the donations of the quality prizes. The response was overwhelming so we thank all our participants for their generous contribution.
Plenty of old Footy stories were told during the day some more exaggerated than the original yarn however everyone was in good spirits with cold beer flowing freely during the afternoon.
We are were privileged to have as our guest speaker former Parramatta , Penrith and Test Player Neville Glover go through some old footy stories and also his achievments throughout his long career which had everyone hanging off every word. We thank Neville for his valued time
Auction Prizes were Norm Provan Signed & framed Memorabillia along with a Changa Langlands caricature Souths, & Bulldogs signed jerseys along with a framed Lighthorseman piece. The response was huge and we exceeded all expectations as many of the items reached well above the reserve.
All in all a great day out with the final financial result more than satisfying , Next fundraiser is our very popular Raceday at Gosford Racecourse with a date yet to be confirmed.
