SIXTY members turned up on Sunday (December 9) to celebrate the exciting new chapter in the bowling club's history with the opening of the new synthetic greens.
B Green has now been used for pennant games last Thursday and Saturday and A Green is being inspected on Thursday and is expected to be given the green light by Bowls WA.
President Ian Edgar presented the new jacks to the sponsors - members of the club - and they were then given to former president Audrey Patterson to be put away for future use.
Work started in October with the old greens ripped up. Preparatory work took a little longer than expected but bowlers are happy with the new conditions - particularly if the initial results are a guide to the future.
The president went into hospital for an emergency operation as the project neared its close and he thanked Des Jones for taking over as project manager. Other members who gave up much of their time to roll and water are Les Mikowiec, Bob Gillian, Len Paterson, Alan Mynott and others.
