A Message From The Chairperson

“I write this the day after our first practice match as a President filled with enthusiasm for the Club’s short and long term future”.

Yesterday’s turnout of both established and new members and the coming out of the darkness of the last eight months, made us realise what great friends we have at Alphington Bowls Club.

That unified approach teamed with the hard work we are prepared to do bowling wise, should ensure an enjoyable and fruitful season ahead.

On a welfare theme, recent times have me thinking of the importance of looking after each other and reaching out with any problems. We’re a club that steps up when the going gets tough and there’s no shame in asking for help. My phone number is 0419482469 and anything you want to discuss will be kept highly confidential.

A hearty welcome to our new members – included in those newly appointed coach Doug McClelland, whose vast experience at the top level will be an asset to us all.

George Matoulis will again be at Thursday night training at least once a fortnight – he being instrumental last season in the improvement shown by so many in our newer ranks. Please avail yourselves of the help these guys can give you.

Bill Hutchison – ABC Chairman
