ABC Open Day held on 26th May 2018 "The Way Forward"
Auchterarder Bowling Club ran a very successful Open Day. The intention was to recruit new members. Both full members as well as social members and to promote the club within the community. The event was held at the Castle Wynd ground in Auchterarder on Saturday 26th May 2018 from 1pm-5pm. The beautifully sunny and hot afternoon was an open invitation to boys, girls, men and women of all ages and skill levels. Many had not held a bowl before and came along to find out more about the game and to try their hand at the sport of green bowling for themselves. Members were on hand to help as well as a coach from Bowls Scotland. The club laid on refreshments and the clubs own licensed bar was also open to provide thirsty players with a well deserved liquid refreshment.
At the close of the day Club Secretary for 2017/18 Alan Cunningham had sent out 12 new membership application forms. We now look forward to seeing our club grow from strength to strength and the new members enjoying the playing of and the social side of green bowls.
A great result to a great day. Thanks go to all the members who attended and helped throughout the day in whatever capacity, be it catering, managing the bar or helping on the green.
As a result of the Open Day the club has started the ball rolling to expand by recruiting new members. It must not allow itself to be complacent and needs to continue driving the club forward in the hearts and minds of the Auchterarder community.
Auchterarder Bowling Club is committed to promoting the game of Green Bowls. It is always our ambition to maintain a strong nucleus of members as well as increasing the membership of our club. 2018 marks the season in which we continue to attract not just new members but young members as well. As they will be the future of the club.
You don't have to have any previous experience. You don't even need to have a set of bowls. All you need is the enthusiasm to play and the interest to attend our club for a fun session to see if you would like to take up the game.
We have a couple of bowls coaches on hand to explain the basics to you, we can supply the bowls and there is no cost to you or to the club.
What you need to do is to pop along to the Bowling Club on a Monday Night at 6.30pm starting from April (the playing season goes through to September).
Alternatively if you would like any further information please contact Club Secretary Martin Brown on tel: 01764-662463
We look forward to seeing you soon.
