It gives me great pleasure in being your President for the 2023-4 season and hoping you all have a happy and enjoyable season.
The last couple of years clubs and the centre have been affected by covid which has seen a lot of pressure on clubs and the centre to finish the program, so a big well done to the club match committees.
We have a new men’s representative convenor in Grant Goodwin, we give Grant our best wishes, as most club selectors know this is a thankless job. Ian McKenzie is again the 1-5 men’s convenor who over the last couple of years has had success with the team. The women’s 1-5 convenors are Trish O’Malley and Judy McSweeney. It is my honour to share the convening duties of the open women’s representative teams with Mike Beretta. We all hope the centre team have great success during the season.
I must mention the many volunteers that help the game of bowls a success in club and centre events, these are club coaches, umpires, markers, scorers, and people putting scoreboards, mats, jacks out in each tournament: again, a thankless task but necessary.
Lastly a huge thanks to you the members of Bowls North Harbour who make this a great centre to be involved in.
