Kilmore bowlers prepare for new competition

Kilmore Bowls Club hosted its annual general meeting outdoors last month.

KILMORE Bowls Club held its annual general meeting on November 29 which, in a sign of the times, was held outdoors.

The AGM was originally scheduled for May but was postponed until the club could comply with COVID-19 restrictions.

Members were also asked to wear face masks in case social distancing was not possible.

President Scott Fletcher welcomed the 37 members present and noted the club’s centenary celebrations as a highlight of a difficult year.

Fletcher thanked the club’s sponsors for their continued support through the COVID-19 pandemic and wished them the best in recovering, saying now was the time to support local businesses and help them get back on their feet.

“This year, we hold on tight as we navigate our way into the new Bowls Victoria boundary changes as we say goodbye to the Central Bowls Division and prepare to forge a new history in the Central Highlands Bowls Division,” he said.
