The Victoria Bowling Club Presentation night for Season 2023/24 was held in the hall on the evening of Friday April 12.

It was great to have Jimmy Whitehead from Bowls Victoria join us as a special guest and to have him speak about plans for the future of bowls in Victoria. We thank Jimmy for also taking questions from our members.

Peter Elshaug was our MC for the night and did a fantastic job of keeping things in order and the night moving along at a great pace.
