Social gathering at the AFL Semi Final

After the Western Bulldogs triumphant victory over in the west against the West Coast Eagle and Hawthorn’s valiant effort but ultimate loss against Geelong last weekend, the two will meet in the AFL Semi Final at the MCG this Friday Night (16/9).

As a bit of team bonding before the season begins, we are looking to see who from the section might be interested in going to the game to share a drink, a chat and what will hopefully be a great game.

While we will not have a dedicated section or seating, we are just looking to meet in one of the bars to catch up and then enjoy the game.

If you are interested in coming along, please let Culum know by sending an email to or 0433 294 840. If you need a visitor ticket please let Culum know and we can organise some tickets.

Meanwhile, new member Taylah Brhi-Rhodes has also been invited to trial for the Women’s Victorian Under 25’s side in October.

We wish both of our bowlers all the best over the coming weeks.

NOTICE TO MEMBERS – Special General Meeting


Dear Members

A Special General Meeting needs to be held to amend the Section’s constitution and this meeting will be held on Thursday 15 September 2016 at 7.00pm in the Swinburne Avenue Pavilion.

As an explanation for the reason for this Special General Meeting, the current Bowls Section constitution was adopted in 2009, after the MCC incorporated all sporting sections, and provided a standardised constitution.  In 2012 the Incorporated Association Reform Act was passed and consequently all the sporting sections needed to update their constitutions to come in line with the Act.  The MCC appointed Ashurst to review and recommend changes all sections constitutions.

Most changes to the constitution are cosmetic, however there are a couple of additional changes in there too:

  • Consolidation of membership categories
  • Inclusion of Life Membership as a specific category
  • Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer must be members of the MCC (any category is acceptable, Full Member, Restricted, Playing, Temporary  etc)
