Awards Night nominations now open

by admin

Bowls Australia is proud to announce the 2015 Hall of Fame and Awards Night will be held at Mantra Legends, Surfers Paradise on October 29, 2015 and nominations have officially opened as of yesterday July 1. 

As part of this process, Bowls Australia are calling upon Board Directors, Staff,  State and Territory Associations and the whole bowling community to assist in driving nominations for both the Bowls Australia Hall of Fame and the prestigious Bowls Australia Awards Ceremony. 

Hall of Fame inductions are held on a bi-annual basis with the last intake occurring in 2013.

The Hall of Fame consists of bowling legends, both past and present phenomenal athletes who represented Australia with distinction, administrators who dedicated years of their life to improve our great sport; all of which can be found on the Bowls Australia Honour Roll. 

Notably, any previous Hall of Fame nominations will be automatically included; however, refreshed information would certainly be welcomed and added to their nomination. 

If you know a coach, volunteer or official who is deserving of being awarded for their contribution to our great sport please nominate them this year; we are hoping to receive a record amount of nominations because we know there are certainly thousands of bowlers out there doing wonderful work in our sport. 

Nominations will close on Friday July 31, 2015, so don’t miss your chance to nominate someone you think deserves to be recognised as a Hall of Fame Member or a valuable contributor to the sport of Lawn Bowls. 

This year Bowls Australia will only be accepting nominations online; a refreshing progression in the bowls community moving toward greater use of technology and efficient record keeping. 

The award categories for the annual Awards Night are as follows- 
• Male Bowler of the Year 
• Female Bowler of the Year

Don’t miss out on a wonderful opportunity to show your gratitude to a fellow club member, family member or friend by nominating them in the 9 award categories now open for for the Bowls Australia Hall of Fame and Awards Night; the work people do in our sport shouldn’t go un-noticed.
