Southside Bowls Club gets ready for a big Melbourne Cup

Gympie Bowls Club – Southside

Last Saturday was ‘Come and Try’ day at our club. Mid-morning rain might have deterred a few people however we were delighted with the number and enthusiasm of the people who came along.

A coach was allocated to each group which allowed them to make the most of their time on the green. Some surprised themselves with the talent they displayed and all of them showed potential.

We finished the day with a delicious sausage sizzle.

If you were unable to attend but are keen to ‘Come and Try’ you’re welcome to come along any Monday afternoon.

More information contact John Allen 0438 836 185.

Our Melbourne Cup lunch is on again and to increase the fun element the theme will be ‘Yesteryear’ with patrons being asked to wear clothes that are at least 10 years old.

The day will start at 10am and there will be a Sweep and Tom Grady will be auctioning the horses in our Calcutta.
