Bare foot on a friday ‘arvo’
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’.
