For 22 years Harry Warr held the Downs District’s secretary position, but the 90-year-old now says it is time for him to step down from the role to allow some new blood to take the reins. 
Warr often found himself filling secretary type roles throughout his career in the RAAF, so when the opportunity arose to fill the district spot Harry was the obvious choice.
When asked why he volunteered for the role Harry quipped “well somebody’s gotta do it” and while he now no longer holds the title of secretary, Harry remains an active member of the West Toowoomba Bowls Club and still finds the chance to have a roll up on occasion.
“I really enjoyed my time as secretary and it gave me the chance to form great friendships with people I met at various levels of the sport,” Warr said.
Bowls Queensland thanks Harry for his service to the sport.
