Some of the players in this year's autumn twilight league.

ANGLESEA Bowling Club and Great Ocean Properties’ Twilight League Bowls autumn competition has concluded with the champion’s medallion awarded to the team “Inadequates”, who according to organisers did anything but live up to their team’s name.

In second place were the purportedly ‘aptly named’ ladies golfers’ team of “Shankers”.

Director of bowls, Leon Wilson, said the autumn competition was a lot of fun for the 18 teams who took part.

“The Bowls League had many highlights none more so than Hat Night with many and varied interpretations of outrageous, funny and quaint,” Wilson said.

“New entrant Cal Walker stole the show with his three-hat combination which he rotated through the evening.”

“We also raised money for charity and promoted the club as a community hub.”

Wilson said all participants congratulated the Anglesea Bowling Club and the volunteers on the conduct of the competition.

“In consultation with the sponsors, in particular Paula Fowler and Jess Nowson from Great Ocean Properties, the bowling club conducted raffles and an auction, which thanks to the remarkable generosity of the players and visitors, raised quite a substantial amount of money for a local cause,” he said.

Fowler said it was all about connecting with the local community and having a laugh..

Great Ocean Properties were thrilled to once again be the sponsor of such an important part of the local community,” she said.

According to Wilson, the club is always on the hunt for new members and welcomes anyone anytime to contact the club.

“It’s a relatively easy game that suits all shapes, sizes, levels of fitness and age,” he said.

“Lookout for advertising for the summer twilight competition that will come out in November.”

With winter approaching, the Anglesea Bowling Club’s winter competitions of jackpot social bowls will continue on Mondays and Saturdays and the club would welcome new members and visitors.

The club is available for hire for weddings, birthday parties and other events.

“There is even coaching and training available,” Wilson said.
