Alan and Margaret were honoured with the naming of the Mansfield Room dedicated to them for their years of service to the Point Lonsdale Club. Chairman Rob Minty presented the enduring name plaque to both on the last round of Pennant in front of 60 members.
Introducing our new alfresco area ‘ The Terrace ‘
A quick update on Club issues. Oct/Nov 23
Make sure your mobile number is on our file and also let us know your latest number! The board and I have heard members loud and clear and we want to ensure we can keep you updated with the latest news and matters concerning the club. Check the members list to ensure we have the latest. Please send updates to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Don’t forget our website for the latest around the Club. Scores will be posted as they are received and what’s happening on the greens will also be posted as the information is received. If you have info that should go on our site, simply go on the home page, scroll to the bottom and click on send us an email.
The bowls stickers have been redesigned as agreed at last Thursday’s impromptu meeting. They will be available very soon.
As you know the CHIP programme (Club House improvement program) has been under development. We will not get the necessary planning and permits (where required) before this holiday season. The board has agreed to buy some outdoor furniture and umbrellas to provide a viewing and casual area for the summer. (this will be used as part of the future development) the board also believes this will be a great trial before final planning and works for the outdoor area is finalised.
The next step in the Strategic Plan development (mission and vision statement) was sent out this week. Please have your stay and if you have the time look at the Bowls Australia and Bowls Victoria sites to review their thoughts on why they believe clubs should develop a plan.
Thank you. The club and outdoor areas look great after the big effort by volunteers to clean up areas before the Bellarine Shield. Visitors saw it as a great success and the planning food etc was great fully received. A big thank you for everybody involved.
Last but not least – don’t forget to invite your friends and visitors to drop down to the club and have a social drink and enjoy themselves amongst new and old friends this holiday season.
I will produce an Upshot every couple of months and send it via email, place it on the website and put them on the notice board. I hope this helps keep members informed as was expressed during recent meetings.
Good Bowling. Rob Minty Pres.
