Mt Isa Sports Expo

By Lesley Bates

A part of my job is to promote our bowls clubs, Bowls Queensland and Bowls Australia’s initiatives such as our Primary School Rookie Rollers, Come & Try Days and Roll Back the Clock programs to the community.

Sports Expos are organised by local councils and at Mt. Isa we had over 1,000 people attending the excellent indoor facility with 66 sports, hobby and community groups displaying what they had on offer.

Airlie Beach club was well represented at the YMCA Whitsunday in January. Because of Covid, Mackay and Rockhampton decided not to stage expos this year and Townsville held theirs on Australia Day. Gold City will be well represented and will have a stall at the March event in Charter Towers.
