At this time, members of sporting clubs everywhere gather for end of year celebrations and to pay tribute to those in the organisation who have shown their skill throughout the year and, during a sumptuous lunch at the Bribie Island Hotel recently, Bribie Island Indoor Bowls Club members were recognised for their achievements.

After club president Margaret Dunn welcomed everyone to the event and thanked Division One Councillor Brooke Savige for attending, the award recipients were announced and I don’t think that too many people were surprised (except maybe Bruce himself) when Bruce Hennessy was named as Club Champion for the second year in a row. Along with the extensive number of bowlers who received trophies, Lara Patey was honoured with the “Rising Star” award.

Following the presentation of awards, the drawing of the raffle winners began and, thanks to the marvellous effort by Roy Bradford who spent many hours collecting donations from local business, there were many prizes to be won. It would be remiss of not to mention that both the food and friendly service at Charlie’s was worthy of praise and all who attended thoroughly enjoyed the occasion.

On a rather sad note, one club member who was missing from the occasion was treasurer Alan Landeman who suffered a severe stroke in the days prior to the event and was in hospital at the time. Regrettably, Alan passed away the following day and the thoughts of all are with Alan’s wife Jenny and the family in their time of grief.
