Best all abil­i­ties club

Benalla Ensign - - SPORT - By Si­mon Rup­pert

The Benalla Bowls Club has been awarded the Best All Abil­i­ties Club in Vic­to­ria by Bowls Vic­to­ria. At a re­cent event club mem­ber Lorna Arm­strong also picked up the Vol­un­teer of the Year Award for the Ovens and Mur­ray Bowls Region. Club pres­i­dent Catherine Chuke and sec­re­tary Gra­ham Moore joined BBC mem­bers in Hawthorn for Bowls Vic­to­ria’s AGM. How­ever, be­cause of a lack of num­bers the AGMwas can­celled and the night was all about hon­our­ing clubs and mem­bers. Mr Moore said it was an hon­our for the club to re­ceive recog­ni­tion and said Ms Arm­strong thor­oughly de­served her award. ‘‘We did not do too bad for a club from a small coun­try town, es­pe­cially when you con­sider there are over 500 bowls clubs in Vic­to­ria,’’ Mr Moore said. ‘‘It seems that the Benalla Bowls Club is grow­ing from strength to strength.’’
