Past Presidents Association National Carnival to be held in Mandurah

by Aaron Delaporte

The Bowls Past President’s Association has been going since 1974 with the first President of the Association being Ken Edwards from West Australia. It was designed for Past Presidents of bowling clubs to get together for fellowship and a social game of bowls , usually monthly, against like minded  clubs like the….  Police, Firies, RSL , Postel  and other interested  bowling  clubs.

In recognition of the changing nature of Club organisations, WA took the decision to widen the membership qualifications to include other members of Bowling Club executives, i.e  Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer who must have served at least 1 year in that position, as well as Presidents .  We are looking for new members who qualify under the new category. If you are interested in membership our Secretary Stan McFarlane can be contacted on 0458 454 996 or email stanleymcfarlane02@gmail.com for details. Membership is open to any gender. 

Every two years a National carnival is held by the Past Presidents to compete against all the other States.  Next  year from the 4th May until the 10th May 2022 the National Carnival will be held in Western Australia, in the Mandurah region. Plans are well under way, and we would be hoping for a strong WA contingent.  To be able to play in this event you must be a financial member of the Past Presidents.
