Bowls Gold Coast Tweed District hosted the finals weekend of the inaugural Max Morris Memorial Sevens competition on February, 20-21. This finals weekend was the culmination after seven weekend rounds of sectional play, covering four separate divisions of bowlers with 48 teams entered. There were 336 bowlers on the greens every Saturday morning.
Overall, the district distributed $19,200 in prize money to 12 different clubs. Max Morris was a member of the District Match Committee for six years (1994–1999), and served three of those years as Chairman of the Committee. He was a director for four years after that, then became District Secretary in 2005. He served as District Secretary until 2012, when he became a director again and was also the Winter Carnival Committee Chairman. Following that, he was the District Patron for four years before standing down from district duties in 2019. Max was also a life member of the District.
Family members of the late Max Morris were present to hand out medallions to the winners in each division.
