Bare­foot fu­sion fun

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - ENTERTAINMENT -

PORT Fu­sion will stage its in­au­gu­ral Dou­glas re­gion bare­foot bowls net­work­ing com­pe­ti­tion at the Moss­man Me­mo­rial Bowls Club on March 30.

Lo­cal tourism iden­ti­ties Tara Ben­nett and Kirsten Tay­lor or­gan­ise the reg­u­lar Port Fu­sion net­work­ing events and de­cided on the bare­foot bowls con­cept as a great way to catch up with old faces and wel­come new ones in the tourism in­dus­try.

“Hav­ing thor­oughly en­joyed a bare­foot bowl­ing day in Cairns last year we wanted to bring the for­mat to the Dou­glas re­gion as it pro­vides an ideal op­por­tu­nity to in­tro­duce your­self to a large se­lec­tion of peo­ple,” Tara said.

“Ev­ery­one in­volved in the tourism in­dus­try in the Port Dou­glas and Dain­tree re­gion is en­cour­aged to put to­gether a team and come along.

“We’d love ev­ery­one to take a breather and en­joy a laugh to­gether be­fore the school hol­i­days be­gin.

“Port Fu­sion is a fab­u­lous op­por­tu­nity to pro­mote your prod­uct and cre­ate re­la­tion­ships with peo­ple that can ben­e­fit you and your busi­ness.”

Teams of four are ex­pected to line up for the af­ter­noon and no ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary as some of the club play­ers will be on hand to pro­vide tips.

“We’d love teams to get into the spirit and come dressed in a theme and give them­selves a name so we can make the event fun and friendly,” Kirsten said.

“Prizes will be awarded for the

lo­cal tourism iden­ti­ties Tara Ben­nett, Za Har­richa­ran, Kirsten Tay­lor and Natalie John­son best dressed team as well as the win­ners.”

The func­tion is only $10 which cov­ers nib­bles and the bus pro­vided by Sun Palm Trans­port to and from the bowls club and a cash bar is avail­able.

The event starts at 1.30pm, fin­ish­ing up about 5pm. Sun Palm trans­port has of­fered trans­fers to and from Port Dou­glas how­ever am­ple park­ing is avail­able at the bowls club.
