The annual Bowls Central Coast/Zone 15 Volunteers Day is a thank you to club volunteers who work tirelessly both up front and behind the scenes to help their club run smoothly and indeed without their efforts some events just wouldn’t happen.
The Greens, The Entrance hosted the 2012 Volunteers Day and with all teams checked in on time club President John O’Connell welcomed everyone and said The Greens were happy to once again host the day.
Then it was smiles and good humour all round as teams from 19 clubs took to the greens for a friendly game of bowls followed by a smorgasbord lunch up in the first floor dining room.
After the lunch we all assembled in the bowler’s area for the presentation of Certificates of Appreciation to those volunteers nominated by their club.
The official guest for the day to present the certificates was Ian McKnight, President, Royal NSWBA assisted by Bowls Central Coast/Zone 15 State Councillor Doug Rose, both of whom had also played in the Official Team against a team from our hosts.
The worthy recipients were John Dawson (Ourimbah/Lisarow), Barry Middleton (Toukley RSL), Bill Roberts (Bateau Bay), Bob Fraser (Gosford City), Bob McKechnie (Toukley District), Bob Rowe (Wamberal), Brian Robertson (Wyong), Charlie Cassar (Munmorah), Desmond Kelly (Mingara), Gary Allenby (Avoca Beach), Ian Brown (The Greens), Ian Disher (Halekulani), Jeff Lanham (Terrigal), Jim Turner (Doyalson/Wyee), John Johnson (Umina Beach), Norm Roberts (Morisset), Pat McLean (Davistown RSL), Ron Hughes (Everglades) and Russell Dunreath-Cooper (Diggers).
