Im­por­tant year for bowl­ing club

Bray People - - Bray Sport -

2009 WILL be an im­por­tant year for Bray Bowl­ing Club as they take on the pres­i­dency of the BLI, which is the gov­ern­ing body of the sport. This will be only the sec­ond time Bray has had this hon­our since its foun­da­tion.

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 fundrais­ing pro­gramme. So far they have held a num­ber of events, in­clud­ing two quiz nights and a cake sale. They are also ac­tively ap­peal­ing for sup­port and spon­sor­ship from lo­cal busi­ness, civic and po­lit­i­cal fig­ures.

Bray Bowl­ing Club, founded in 1965, play lawn bowls at Failte Park, Ade­laide Road, Bray. The ob­ject of the club is to play, pro­mote and foster the game of bowls ac­cord­ing to the rules adopted by The World Bowls Board.

The club is af­fil­i­ated to the Bowl­ing League of Ire­land (BLI), and the Ladies Bowl­ing League of Ire­land (LBLI). The club has over 100 mem­bers, 65 men and 40 ladies. The in­come re­ceived from this fundrais­ing is in­tended to meet the cost of nec­es­sary im­prove­ments such as paint­ing, lighting and plumb­ing, and also to de­fray out­lay on events as­so­ci­ated with the Pres­i­dency.
