BROADBEACH. As Kelvin Kerkow was announcing the Category for Best Large Club of the Year in Queensland, the small group
from Broadbeach sat quietly….until the words ‘ and the winner is Broadbeach’……………..Chairman Barry Gilbert accepted the
award on behalf of the Club. Then Robyn Ingham let fly with ‘Go The Bulls’, and reality had hit home.
It was a very good result for the Club. Sean Ingham won The Best Junior in Queensland and is a finalist in the National Awards.
Sean was represented by his parents Grant & Robyn because Sean was in New Zealand playing for Australia in the Trans
Barry highlighted the great year the Club had survived and the great results from our bowlers, young, over 60 and the Club’s great

the assistance of Bowls Co-Ordinator Ryan Bester and all the players throughout the Club.
Press Release 5/4/2013
We held our Blue Ribbon pairs event this past Sunday and Monday. Thank you to all who helped make it a successful
tournament. Our own Sean Ingham and Chris McKibben took out first prize. Well done Sean and Chris.
We have the Maccabi games at our club starting from this Sunday. That is the reason two greens will be out for social bowls but
will be back to normal the following week.
Mark Casey came runner-up in the prestigious Golden Nuggett Tournament at Tweed Heads. Mark lost to Mat Pietersen from
NSW in a good final. Mark beat myself in the last round robin game with the winner going into the semi finals. Mark and I are off to
Scotland this weekend to represent Australia and Canada respectively. It is an 8 nation event held at the venue for the 2014
Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, South Africa, Canada, England and two Scotland teams
will be competing. It will be good to get practise on the greens and collect information for when we get the opportunity to host the
Games in 2018
