Dear Members,

Well the green is closed and upkeep has commenced, still looks good enough to bowl on…..

All that is left to do is the AGM and to have a great afternoon on Sunday May 19th for presentation of awards and a celebration of the season that was.     We currently have about 30 members and guests down to attend which is well down on the usual 50 or so.   Hopefully we can expect a few more to put your names down on the sheet or let Graeme Lee or myself know that you will be attending.

For reference the details are as follows:

The Details:

When:                                   Sunday 19th May 2019

Time:                                      Nibbles start midday, 12:00pm followed by a sumptuous lunch, we expect the afternoon to conclude around 3:00pm

Cost:                                       A very reasonable $25 per head including your first drink

A number of our major sponsors and life members will be in attendance so for one more time this year let’s celebrate as only Malvern Bowling Club can.    Hope to see you there.

General Stuff:

  • The AGM will be Saturday 22nd June, 2019 commencing at 10:00am and will once again be held at the facility of Regis Aged Care. Regis will also at the conclusion of the meeting provide a guided tour for anyone wishing to have a look at the facility.
  • We have (when I say we I mean Andy Smith and Roger Morrison) established a working bee crew every Wednesday at the club. This is open to anyone who would like to contribute to the upkeep of the club and to spend a few hours with friends doing some updating and upkeeping around the club.   No need to sign up, simply turn up between 10:00am and 1:00pm any Wednesday of course wearing appropriate handy person clothing.    All members are invited.

Some projects that we can be working on include:

  • Sanding and repainting of outdoor bench seats
  • Sanding and repainting of timber channel, rink edging
  • Filling, sanding and repainting of window frames
  • Sanding and repainting of verandah post
  • Cleaning of hall chairs
  • New felt pads on hall chairs
  • Cleaning of kitchen and hall
  • New felt pads on bowls rakes
  • Cleaning out of greenkeepers sheds
  • Weeding and mulching of garden beds (north of green)

About the Author
Hi! I'm Ed Payne - I have been a resident of Malvern for the past 35 years (my whole life) and have only been bowling for a very short while. I've gone the "whole hog" and jumped in as the Secretary of Malvern Bowls Club and now I'm doing a little work on the website. I hope I can help YOU to get the best out of this site, as it belongs to YOU, the member. So please don't hesitate to suggest changes and additions - I'll always listen.

    Hello Mr.Payne,
    I am wondering if your club would run another barefoot bowls session of about 6 visits on a Sunday as you did for members of U3A Stonnington about 5 years ago. One of our members Bunty Evans continued on with her bowling, with great success. She loves the Club. I am a member of our Curriculum Committee and would love to hear from you. We are now planning our programme for semester 1 2020. Is there a 6 week slot sometime in March/April/May? I will put my email address below. Thank you.
