WE PRESENT OUR CHEQUE

 

Breakers Bowling Club, Mounties and Adviceco presen a cheque for $7000 to Kids In Need Central Coast as a result of a combined fundraising effort at our Autumn Carnival held at our club.

Many thanks to all those who contributed to such a worthy cause.


This charity is a small volunteer organisation who raise money to provide financial assistance to families of seriously ill Central Coast children, who are required to go to Sydney / Newcastle Hospitals for treatment. They do this, by easing the financial burden for medications, equipment, travel and accommodation.

Adviceco, Mounties and our own club have combined to raise a substantial $7000 which we will be very pleased to be able to hand to the representatives of Kids in Need.

As this presentation is to be held between the morning and afternoon sessions of our bowls please try to attend and show your support for our charity and our generous sponsors. But especially the Kids in Need of the Central Coast.

We Have Won The Flag!!!


Thanks to 6 beautiful shots on the last end from Canton Beach our Grade 7 side have brought home the Zone 15 Pennant Flag.

Final scores were Breakers 11, The Entrance 10, and Canton Beach 9.

We congratulate The Entrance as runners up and Canton Beach for their great sportsmanship and fight back in their last game.

Thanks also to Mounties for the celebration drinks and to Gus and his team for our greens!

The precious flag is displayed on the club trophy cabinet at Breakers Country Club.


Thanks For Everything, Kevin


Kevin died this morning after a long illness. His wife Pam and two sons were by his side. Kevin was a very active member and contributor to our club and to bowls in Zone 15 and NSW.
He began as our President then moved on to be President of our Zone.  He also established  our club newsletter The Whisper and then stepped up to become editor of our zone newsletter Staying in Touch.  Who can possibly forget the entertaining Club Pennants dinners where everyone got a roasting.  Thanks for all your work for bowls Kevin, but mostly thanks for all the fun you made for us. Your love of our sport and your club is something we shall never forget.

Kevin's family will be holding a private farewell to him so there will be no funeral details available.

2022/23 Club Handicap Triples Final Decided

Mike Stephens, Luke Mason, Ed Mason, John Bramwell, Steve English and Jeff Stannard

The winners of our 2022/23 Handicap Triples Competition were Mike Stephens, Luke Mason and Ed Mason 38 – 22 over Jeff Stannard, John Bramwell and Steve English. Great game from all players.

This was a new event played this year with a new handicap system. Some handicaps may be revised for our next event! However, our winners did not require their handicap of 10 to be victorious in this match.
Well done to all players in the competition who provided us with some very close contests and some very entertaining bowls.

Your Questions Answered


At our recent 2022/23 Half Yearly Meeting questions were asked about the eligibility of both MALE and FEMALE players in events run by NSWBowls and Clubs.


Remember when reading this document that NSWBowls is a unified body but Zones and Districts are not yet unified. Some clubs are amalgamated, and some clubs are not. Our two clubs are not amalgamated. They are both sub clubs of Breakers Country Club a member of Mounties Group.

It is important to read carefully the entire document especially those sections in YELLOW.

We hope that this may clarify where we all stand in our clubs and what competitions and championships, we may all enter in accordance with NSWBowls COP.

BowlsNSW Member Protection Policy is also available for you to read on our club website and on Teamapp.
