Back in the hot seat

by admin

Ron Chambers has been returned as Bowls Queensland’s chairman for a fourth term, as council delegates elect new board and committee members at the state body’s Annual General Meeting. Check out full results here. Musgrave Hill’s Ron Chambers is back in the chair at Bowls Queensland for another year.
It will be Ron’s fourth year as chairman, after previously serving two years as deputy chair, and three years before that as a board director.
“I look forward to another successful year, continuing the reforms of the past 12 months and supporting our development officers and staff,” Ron said.
“The council meeting after the AGM this year was positive and conducted in a spirit of goodwill and communication, it was heartening to see delegates conduct themselves in a respectful manner.”
Chairman of the Umpire Committee John Dawson from Tewantin Noosa has moved into the Deputy Chair’s position.
Former Deputy Chair Doug Murray from Mareeba contested both chair and deputy positions, but was unsuccessful against the incumbent Chambers, and Dawson, in his first tilt at a board position.
Greg Flynn from Enoggera Bowls Club was returned unopposed as BQ Director of Finance, a position he was appointed to by the Board last year, after the sudden death of Des O’Neill from Ashgrove.
Of four director’s seats on the board, Mooloolaba’s Margaret Vincent was reelected for a second two-year term, along with first-timer Ron Mitchell from Townsville’s Thuringowa Bowls Club.
Allan Bennett from Mackay is in the second year of a two-year appointment (elected 2013) and Athol Radnidge from Capalaba will serve a second year as a board-appointed director (filling a casual vacancy in 2013 and 2014).
Men’s Section president for 2014 is David Cunningham from Tara and vice president is Bob Fraser from Solander Lakes (Bribie).
Ladies Section president is Dawn Forrest from Robina and vice president is Jill Buchan from Beenleigh.
