The region’s oldest bowlers have a special day on the Illawarra calendar with the annual Veterans and Super Veterans Day at Warilla BC later this month.
The annual Zone 16 event on Monday February 26 is a social bowls day with all bowlers aged over 70 eligible for either the Veterans or Super Veterans teams. Entries close February 20 with Warilla BC to again play host.
‘’It’s a great chance for our senior bowlers to come together and enjoy one another’s company,’’ Warilla bowls coordinator Jeremy Henry said.
It is a big few weeks for Henry and Warilla BC with the World Cup on March 6 to 14. Five-time defending champion Henry and 2017 Australian Indoor champion David Ferguson are Australia’s men’s singles representatives.
Australian Commonwealth Games representative Rebecca Van Asch also won the Australian Indoor last August to claim the spot as Australia’s women’s rep in the star-studded international field of 23 nations.
