DIV 2 PENNANT – Crows Nest Shines

The Crows Nest Bowls Club has only ever been successful in the DDBA Pennant Competition on two occasions in the last half century.  We won Division 4 in 1970-71.  And then came back to beat all-comers the following year after being promoted to 3rd Division.  It probably has to be appreciated that our run of … Read more

Community Night Bowls


Starting in October each year and continuing for about six weeks there’s something new and popular going on in Crows Nest.  For many years we ran a programme of night bowls for club members and beginners, but it failed to launch with any great success.   The idea was shelved and regarded as not very appealing for a little country club such as ours.

It took us a while to understand that non-bowlers or those who just wanted to venture out on a week night, have some fun, and not take the game or themselves too seriously were out there in the community but we weren’t reaching them.  So we had to change!

These days our Tuesday Night Burger Bowls, (so nick-named by the locals who play because we’ve combined tasty hamburgers as part of the evening line-up), are very popular with a growing number of Crows Nest regulars out for a bit of fun and a game with friends.  It doesn’t matter if some teams are “stacked” because the winning prize is always drawn out of the hat.  Everyone has an even chance of success.  The burgers are ready from about 6pm, thirty minutes later cards have been called, mats are down and we’re off!

We’ll supply the bowls, mats and jacks – all you need to bring is yourself, some soft soled shoes and an appetite for something new.  Watch the local High Country Herald for advertisements in October.

Five dollars for green fees, and another five if you’d like a tasty barbecued burger – what else do you need for a good night out?
