Bowls for Schools Program

The program is currently suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The Sebastopol Bowling Club has a ‘Bowls for Schools’ program

Many Schools visit the Sebastopol Bowling Club and receive bowls coaching.

All coaches are accredited with ‘working with children’ certificates and the program benefits many.

The interaction between generations is fantastic for both and the benefit being involved in sport cannot be under estimated.

From the Club’s point of view, we are very excited about exposing a new generation to a great sport and past time.

Any Schools wishing to access this program can simply just call the Club on 03 5335 8839

CELEBRATING MILESTONES DURING COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS

Danny Fletcher was awarded Life Membership of Sebastopol Bowling Club

The Sebastopol Bowling Club held its Annual General Meeting via the ‘ZOOM’ platform on Sunday August 30, 2020 with 44 members logged in. Under the current COVID-19 restrictions, it was a ‘first’ for all who logged in to the meeting, which was hosted by the General Manager, Rod Beckwith.

Danny has been a member of the Club for 47 years.   He played nearly 900 Lawn bowls games, and has lost count of the number of indoor bowls games. Danny played in seven Outdoor Bowls premiership games, in two Indoor Premiership Bowls Games, and has achieved great results in Club Events.  He has been President, Vice President, Committee member and Match Committee member.  Danny has also volunteered in all aspects of the Club, including green keeping, and bar work for social functions.  He was voted as a life member by the majority of the members of the Club, and presented at home with his Life Membership badge, by his son, Craig.

Arrangements were set in place for Danny’s son Craig to present him with his Life Membership Badge.  Members of Danny’s extended family were invited to log into the ZOOM session to see the presentation.  Danny made a short speech recognising the progress of the Club over his time as a member, and although not currently bowling, he still maintains social membership of the Club and regularly supports the Club on pennant competition days, and other social events.

As well as conducting the business of an Annual General Meeting, two retiring members of the Board of Management were also surprised with gifts in recognition of their service to the Club.  The gifts were delivered to their homes, at the end of the meeting.  John Harvey retired as Secretary of the Board of Management; a position he held for ten years.   Tony Walsh retired from the Board of Management after serving on the Board for seven years, the latter two years as Chair.  Warren Bedggood was voted in as Chair of the Board for the next two years.
