At the 55th Annual General Meeting of the Crows Nest & District Bowls Club held on Sunday 14 August 2022, Life Membership was awarded to President Ray Weis. Kerry Lovell, Senior Vice President, is seen above presenting the Life Member Badge during the morning’s meeting. Ray’s record of service to the management and members of the Crows Nest Bowls Club spanned many years, inclusive of four terms as Club President, six as Providor and an additional eleven terms in a variety of other integral committee roles. Over the years, Ray had regularly demonstrated his commitment to lawn bowls in Crows Nest as a willing volunteer during the night bowls calendar, the annual green renovation programme, and by supporting our yearly bowls carnival.

Ray joins the respected ranks of our present and passed members whose  enthusiasm and commitment has been similarly acknowledged during the last half century or so of club history …
