DID YOU KNOW???

Our Club won the  Large Country Club of the Year Award at the recent BOWLS SA AWARDS NIGHT 2015.
The following extract is from the Bowls SA Awards Night program.

“The McLaren Vale Bowling Club has shown that it has invested a great deal in forward planning through the adoption of a comprehensive Strategic Plan and excellent governance structure. The starting point was a survey covering all aspects of the Club from facilities, bowling, greens, social events and community presence. All members and community stakeholders were invited to respond. The survey results were collated, a Focus Group met and developed the SWOT analysis for the Club. Mission and Vision statements were created by the Board of Management and referred to the members for endorsement. As a result Club members have endorsed a capital expenditure plan over the next five years to improve aspects of their Club that include a full remodelling of the clubhouse toilets, bar and office areas including new lighting, floor coverings and sound system.”

WELL DONE EVERYONE!  McLaren Vale Bowling Club is a great Club!!

Please note that although our Clubrooms are currently being renovated, Saturday Social Bowls/Wednesday Social Bowls/ Darts and Friday Night Teas will continue as normal.

Beth Metcalf 2Beth Metcalf : The McLaren Vale Bowling Club regrets the passing of our great friend, bowler and valued member.  Beth was a late starter to bowls, but developed into a very good leader in the ladies pennant competition.  She was always cheerful, very fair, a great club woman and a great cook.  She was held in very high regard by all members of the club, especially the ladies.  Rest in peace Beth and you will be greatly missed.
