New home for King Ro­tary Club

Go! & Express - - GO! IN KING - BRIAN McLEAN

In what could be de­scribed as a break­through, ini­tial talks of a new home for the King Ro­tary Club were re­cently held.

The move, if it does take place, would see the town’s Ro­tary Club mem­bers re­lo­cate from the King Club to the King Bowl­ing Club.

The in­tended move was dis­cussed at a King Bowl­ing Club monthly meet­ing at­tended by Ro­tary mem­bers.

Asked if the club would be big enough to ac­com­mo­date Ro­tary, it was pointed out by Ro­tary mem­ber Dave Heath­cote that the build­ing of a club­house ad­ja­cent to the bowl­ing club was a pos­si­bil­ity.

“We have a lot of re­galia col­lected over the years and this has to be housed,” he said.

Of ben­e­fit to the bowl­ing club is that all Ro­tar­i­ans would be signed on as so­cial mem­bers and the club’s bar would be utilised on a reg­u­lar ba­sis.

Pos­i­tive talks re­gard­ing the way for­ward are on­go­ing.

Mean­while, it is go­ing to be a busy few weeks ahead for bowlers.

The club will be stag­ing their an­nual Old Buck-spon­sored Clas­sic from Oc­to­ber 13 to 14 and with R8,000 go­ing to the win­ning team, a good turnout is ex­pected.

The King Clas­sic will be fol­lowed with two King teams at­tend­ing the Molteno Clas­sic to be held on Oc­to­ber 27 and 28 while teams from King will also at­tend the an­nual Mil­lie Hansel Bowls Day set for Novem­ber 4 in Stut­ter­heim.

On Novem­ber 2, the King Bowl­ing Club will stage their an­nual

King’s Got Tal­ent which is an event at which mem­bers are en­cour­aged to over­come their in­hi­bi­tions by ven­tur­ing onto the stage.

The King Bowl­ing Club’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing is set for Oc­to­ber 24.
