Lack of li­cence bowls club over

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - BUSINESS -

TIM­ING is ev­ery­thing as the crew at the South­port Bowls Club found out re­cently.

The club had ap­plied for an ex­ten­sion to its liquor li­cence so it could stay open un­til 3am.

SBC, also a favoured wa­ter­ing hole of Bul­letin jour­nal­ists, is cur­rently home to the English team, in­clud­ing ath­letes, fam­i­lies and sup­port­ers, dur­ing the Com­mon­wealth Games.

One night a group of 70 English sup­port­ers showed up at 11pm ready to splash their cash on the bar.

The prob­lem, ac­cord­ing to club chair­man Graeme Mee (pic­tured), was the bar had closed as the li­cence ex­ten­sion didn’t kick in un­til the fol­low­ing night.

So the English had to find an­other drink­ing spot.
