Mackay City’s Centenary

by bqmedia

A significant milestone for Mackay and District bowls occurs next year in early February when the Mackay City Bowls Club celebrates its centenary. Current Patron and immediate Past President, Vince McSherry, can hardly wait for the celebrations to begin.

“It will be a great weekend in February 2023 when we celebrate our 100 years at Mackay City Bowls Club with our members and the local community. We will celebrate the wonderful contribution of 100s of bowlers who have built the culture of our club over many generations.”

The three-day event commences on Friday, February 3 and continues through that weekend. An invitation to all past and present members is extended to join in the festivities, which include a wine and cheese meet and greet, memorabilia display and an afternoon of mixed historical/hysterical bowls from yesteryear. The official formal dinner on the Saturday night will be followed on the Sunday with an invitation to all the 13 district clubs to send a fours team for a celebratory game that we all love.
