Bare foot on a fri­day ‘arvo’

Euroa Gazette - - GAZETTE SPORTS -

BARE­FOOT Bowls was held at Euroa Bowls Club and it was quite the suc­cess, with 30-40 peo­ple mak­ing up the at­ten­dance re­cently.

The ini­tial idea was born at a wake at the bowls club, fol­low­ing a sig­nif­i­cant fu­neral, when the group and or­gan­iser Joe Allen said it would be nice to have a beer and roll on a Fri­day af­ter­noon.

“It was solely in­tended to help ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity and the bowls club,” Mr Allen said.

“You meet some char­ac­ters and it’s a rare op­por­tu­nity to break down the age bar­ri­ers of our com­mu­nity.”

The night was a good op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple from all walks of life, to un­wind with friends in a re­laxed en­vi­ron­ment where they were able to ac­tu­ally talk and en­joy some sport.

This new di­rec­tion is sup­ported by new pres­i­dent Max Grif­fiths and his club, where they are not los­ing the tra­di­tion of bowl­ing but bring­ing some rel­e­vance to it.

Mr Allen has said there will be an­other cou­ple of these nights in the near fu­ture, so keep an eye out on Face­book at ‘So­cial Bowls Euroa’.
