Coach not to continue next year

Saturday week ago after pennant, Neville Wood-Bradley our current club coach spoke to the members in attendance to inform them that due to personal reasons he will not be returning to the club next season. In his talk he mentioned how much he had enjoyed the MCC Bowls Section and wished the entire club all the best for the remainder of the season and for the future.

The Committee would like to thank Neville for what he has brought to the club over the past 3 seasons and we wish him well into the future.

Chairman’s Trophy Winner

Congratulations to Brendan McKay who on Tuesday played an enthralling match against Chris Beanland in the Chairman’s Trophy Final. The game was closely contested and with the scores at 18 BM – 20 CB, Brendan drew 3 shots to take out the title.

There was a good crowd in attendance to witness the match and we congratulate both on making the Final.

All the best to the other bowlers who are still competing in the other club games, please remember to keep to the timeframes on the draw.

2017 Footy Functions – Ebeling Room

With the 2017 Footy Season fast approaching, again we will be hosting functions in the Hans Ebeling room at the MCG.

This year our first function is early in the Season on Saturday 25th March (Essendon vs Hawthorn) with the game starting at 7.25pm. We are still finalising details with the MCC for the costing, but it will be similar to previous years with a Cocktail type menu consisting grazing dishes, a 4 hour bar, sandwiches and sausage rolls at half time.

Costing will also be similar to last year, but we will confirm in the next week or so:

  • MCC Members (Full, Restricted, Provisional) approx. $65 each
  • Non MCC Members approx. $65 for the function + $27-29 for a Visitor Ticket into the Members Reserve
  • We are trying to finalise a soft drinks package also, so we will let you know how we go with that one

If you are interested in attending please contact Culum Bennington by emailing communications@mccbowls.org with how many people think might come along. So get your friends, workmates, school mates, fellow bowlers and anyone else who likes to have a drink, a bite to eat and enjoy the footy. This will be a great to catch up with everyone before winter.
