Spare a thought for our charity this weekend


It’s that time of year when we all celebrate, with family and friends, the Christmas Spirit.

A Message from the Berry Christmas Appeal

The children and young people in Berry Street’s care often miss out on the happy times that the rest of us take for granted and sadly, Christmas is no exception. We believe all children should have a good childhood including being able to celebrate Christmas in the same way other children do.

Our gifts to Berry Street has been a long-standing Tradition. Any gift is helpful.
To enable you to contribute, envelopes are available at all three venues and will be included in the managers’ kits for the last round of pennant before Christmas.
If you put your name on the envelope Berry Street will issue a receipt.

Tournament Shirt released for MCC Bowls

We have decided to introduce a “Tournament Shirt” for MCC Bowlers to wear at all events EXCEPT PENNANT!

These shirts are made by a different manufacturer to our pennant shirts and are of a newer materials which breathe better in the warmer conditions. We’ll have a sample of the shirt material available in the Committee Room from Tuesday.

The shirts will have the Bowls Australia logo on them and are able to be worn at events such as Region Regional, Victorian Open and Tournaments just to name a few.

Short sleeve shirts will cost $45 each, plus if you want a Name/Nickname on the back you just need to add $5 (so $50). These prices are only guaranteed for the first batch of these shirts, following this batch price will be determined based on quantity ordered.

Sizes are available from Small through to 4XL.

If you would like to purchase a shirt you need to send the following details to by 20th December 2017 to secure your shirt.


All payments are to be via cash before your order is confirmed. If you have any questions send an email to address above or talk to Culum at the club.
