Hughenden Father’s Day weekend

When I first visited this club, it was mentioned that as they were nearly 400 kilometres from Townsville, they rarely had visitors. They had a theory that there were big gates just past Charters Towers that were locked. Fortunately, the chains are cut each year in the first weekend in September and bowlers from Alligator Creek, South Townsville, Jubilee, Ingham, Thuringowa, Cutheringa and Charters Towers head out to fill the greens for an awesome time.

The new shade cover was in place, the camp kitchen was put into action and Les was the dedicated, designated driver who ferried the teams to and from the club daily. Plans and quotes are being organised for extensions and renovations to the 80-year-old club house and Hughenden hopes to be a recipient of the Gambling Community Super Grant to help with the cost of implementing these plans.
