Bowl­ing at a new level


Bray People - - News Focus -

BRAY BOWL­ING Club, founded in 1965, is this year tak­ing on the pres­i­dency of the Bowl­ing League of Ire­land - the gov­ern­ing body of the sport.

This will be only the sec­ond time Bray has had this hon­our since its foun­da­tion 43 years ago and the mem­bers wish to mark this spe­cial year by up­grad­ing the club fa­cil­i­ties.

To meet the ex­pense of th­ese im­prove­ments, the club has em­barked on a fund rais­ing pro­gramme and so far mem­bers have held two quiz nights and a cake sale and are plan­ning a race night for Novem­ber.

‘We are ac­tively ap­peal­ing for sup­port and spon­sor­ship from lo­cal busi­ness, civic and po­lit­i­cal fig­ures,’ said a spokesman.

The club, which plays lawn bowls at Failte Park, Ade­laide Road, has over 100 mem­bers - 65 men and 40 ladies.

The in­come re­ceived from all of the fund rais­ing events will go to­wards meet­ing the costs of nec­es­sary im­prove­ments such as paint­ing, lighting and plumb­ing as well as any ex­penses as­so­ci­ated with the pres­i­dency of the BLI.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to make a do­na­tion con­tact the Club­house on (01) 2863899.
