Support required for WA Blind Bowlers

by Aaron Delaporte

The VISION IMPAIRED and BLIND BOWLERS of WESTERN AUSTRALIA (VIBBWA) will be hosting the 2019 AUSTRALIAN BLIND BOWLERS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS, to be held at the Perth and Tattersall’s Bowling and Recreation Club, East Perth  from 30th April until the 8th May 2019.

We are seeking your support. Firstly we desperately require volunteers to be Markers, Umpires and most important a Director of the Championships who will be the organiser for the Championships. For the first four days of the games Victoria Park Bowling club will also supply one green to assist in the numbers of bowlers attending.

If you or your club can assist please contact the Secretary of VIBBWA, Dawn Hillman either by email secretary@vibbwa.org.au or by phone on 0412 891 098.

As you would be aware to host such an event takes a great deal of money. We are responsible for the catering of lunches and evening meals for up to 100 people from all over Australia. Volunteers must also be fed. Bus hire, flag pole hire and trestle table hire  all adds up to quite amount of expense.

The Vision Impaired and Blind Bowlers would be grateful for any donations that your club could afford. Cheques or direct deposit can be made to the address above or the following bank account details;

A/C Name: VIBBWA

A/C Number: 1317666

BSB: 302 162

We look forward to hearing form you in the near future.

All the Best in Bowling.

Wayne Forbes – President VIBBWA  and Dawn Hillman – Secretary VIBBWA
