Buckley Park Bowls Club: season opening

On Sunday, 26 August 2012,  I had the pleasure of  attending the opening  day for season 2012-13 of the Buckley Park Bowls Club.  Chairman  Keith Gibbs and  the board  of management put on a wonderful lunch in celebration  and anticipation of  the  oncoming  bowls  season.

The presentations to longstanding club  members Bernie Drakeford and  Bap Gasparini for their committed service to the club were  a highlight of the lunch.  The Buckley Park Bowls  Club  is going from strength to  strength,  and  will  only  get  stronger when later this year lights are installed on the aptly named Bernie Drakeford green.

I thank chairman Keith Gibbs,  deputy chairs Kevin  Cromie  and Alan Renton,  and  secretary John Taylor for  their  hospitality  last Saturday, and I wish the Buckley Park Bowls Cub every success for season 2012-13.
