Draw for the Taylor Wide Bay Classic completed

THE draw for the 2016 Taylor Classic challenge has (finally) been released.

My spies tell me that this has been a nightmare for the organisers to compile.

The problems mainly occurred due to the fact that some clubs were delaying their decisions to commit to the competition.

So bearing in mind the difficulties faced by the organisers the delay is quite acceptable, and all people involved in planning the event need to be congratulated.

In the 2016 season, Division 1 will comprise of eight clubs, while Division 2 will have seven clubs.

 "The Family Club" (Burrum Heads Bowls Club) wishes to advise that they will be open every day during the holiday period.

 "The Friendly Club" (Hervey Bay Bowls Club) will be playing the men's Monday afternoon triples as normal on January 4.

Visitors to the area who are an affiliated member of another bowling club are more than welcome.

Names in by 10am.

For further information contact the club on (07) 4128 1093.

 The Fraser Coast District Bowls Association (FCDBA) is chasing a good samaritan with the technical nous to build a website for the FCDBA.

It is envisaged that the website will not only display bowling events for the district but also link the 19 clubs electronically together.

If interested, contact FCDBA secretary Peter Moar by email at pmoar2@big pond.com.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and prosperous New Year.
