Easter 2018 (Thursday March 29 - Monday 2 April)
Founded in 1943 and in 2018 we celebrated 75 years over five days of Easter.
We celebrated this occasion with various tournaments and social events.
It all started Thursday afternoon 29 March 2018 with 2-4-2 Pairs, finishing off Monday 2 April with a BBQ, with various bowling tournaments and social events in between.
The bowling highlight of the celebrations was the two day 75th Jubilee Classic.
While the social highlight was undoubtedly the 75th Jubilee Black Tie Gala Dinner.
