Rocky’s Jack turns 95!
Rockhampton Bowls Club’s oldest member, Jack Robinson, celebrated his 95th birthday in November last year. Jack joined the club in November 2003 and not only does he continue to play bowls, but he also still puts them on, or very close to, the kitty. He still plays his famous on-shot to take out the opposition’s bowl.
Jack joined the Rockhampton Bowls Club from Diggers Bowls Club where he had been a member since 1997. He has often spoken about how he learned to play bowls and how he often stopped off for a practice on the way home from golf. During his time at the club, Jack has served as one of the organisers of Saturday afternoon bowls and as a selector. May you continue to enjoy your bowls, Jack!
