Bowls Club eyes Wonga Beach ex­pan­sion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

A SO­CIAL club cum sports out­let could be on the cards for Wonga Beach, built by Moss­man Bowls Club which is be­gin­ning to think about new projects fol­low­ing the open­ing of its new ex­panded club­house last Satur­day.

Bowls Club sec­re­tary man­ager Kevin Rynne told the Gazette that the club was keen not to be ‘‘just sit­ting on its hands’’ now that the ren­o­va­tions in Moss­man were fin­ished.

‘‘We do want to do some­thing for the com­mu­nity,’’ he said, adding that Wonga Beach was first con­sid­ered as a pos­si­ble lo­ca­tion for a so­cial/sport venue at the an­nual gen­eral meet­ing of the Moss­man Bowls Club in 2012.

‘‘Wonga is a hot con­tender to my mind,’’ Mr Rynne said.

The coastal town lacks a so­cial hub ever since the tav­ern was razed some years ago and there is an ap­par­ent need for a new venue. Mr Rynne thinks such a venue could also be some­thing of a sports out­let, prob­a­bly a bowls club with a quar­ter or half-sized green, or per­haps a so­cial venue with a ten­nis court along­side.
