Brisbane Northside Arm Bowlers Association Inc

Welcome to the Brisbane Northside Arm Bowlers Association Inc website.

Brisbane Northside Arm Bowlers Association Inc play monthly tournaments at clubs from the Brisbane River north to Bribie Island and Glasshouse. However, we also play at other Clubs such as Gatton and some Brisbane Southside Clubs on request.

We welcome new members to Brisbane Northside Arm Bowlers Association Inc and you do not have to be playing your bowls on the Northside of Brisbane. We currently have members from such Clubs outside of the Northside as Gatton, Laidley, Wynnum and Manly.

Membership is only $20 per annum and this allows for you to be covered by our Insurance Policy whilst you are playing in our events. Members are also eligible to play in our Club Championship Singles and Pairs and our Annual Medals for Players of the Year. Players are eligible to win one of three random draw Fuel Cards at our Monthly events … so what are you waiting for? Get on board and have a great day out with Brisbane Northside Arm Bowlers Association Inc in 2020.

We have also had players play with us from Victoria, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast. Non members are welcome to attend our Tournaments, but preference will be given to those who are members of our Association if we are short of rinks.

Covid-19 Advice from BQ

Bowls Qld have sent out some useful advice for Covid-19 so I thought we would publish this for our members.

Covid-19 Information and Resources for Sporting Organisations

20200327 – Covid 19 Related Support Measures for Clubs, Employees & Participants

20190331 – Update

From the President

Covid-19 is still impacting on all of us, but the good news is that we will come out the other side eventually. These are the words of this nations leaders and we can only be guided by that at this time. It is tough and many Bowls Clubs are looking at what they can do to retain Green Keepers etc whilst the Clubs are closed.

BNABAi are fortunate that we don’t have these issues to deal with, however, we have had to cancel some of our events for thsi year and this looks highly likely to continue for a couple of Months yet.  So the list below is what we know at this stage:

  • Club Championship Singles and Pairs are put on hold and it is hoped that we will be able to fit them in later in the year, depending on other events.
  • Donnybrook Tournament April 26th 2020 – In Doubt
  • Sandgate Tournament Monday 11th May – In Doubt

We made the decision based on Government advice and the fact that the Clubs are not allowed to open at this time. We regret any inconvenience to Clubs and Members, but the health and safety of our players must take first priority. I will keep you informed of changes.

We will wait until 2 weeks prior to events before we cancel them for this year, but the next couple are certainly not looking promising.

Keep well and keep safe and take the time to look in on others who may be on their own in this trying time. Give them a call or drop them a line.

Easter Raffle 2020 Cancelled

We have decided to cancel the Easter Raffle at this stage and hopefully will run a raffle at a later stage.

We have had some generous prizes donated and thank those who have done so:

Cr Denise Sims – MBRC – Coffee Plunger Set, Picnic Wine Cooler and BBQ Set

Steven Miles MP – Easter Basket

and North Lakes Sports Club.

See Full list by clicking here

Tthe Redcliffe Markets have now been closed and we were offered to go to alternative venues, but I have declined the offer at this time due to the age demographic of our members.

We will hold a night at North Lakes Sports Club in the future in order to thank our Sponsors and have a get together as a group when this thing is over.

Red Hill Postponed

Due to Corona Virus restrictions we have decided to cancel Red Hill Bowls Club event on Friday 27/3/20. We are hopeful that this event will go ahead later in the year.

Woodford Win For BNABAi

Sunday 8th March 2020 saw BNABAi go to Woodford for their Seafood Day.

Dressed in our new uniforms, Glenn Norton (Red Hill), Vic McCullough (Woodford), Warren Cresdee (Geebung) and Tony Watson (Kallangur) played well but lost their first game, however after a delicious lunch of Seafood came back out and took out the highest margin for Round 2.

Well done guys and we would like to thank Woodford Bowls Club for a great day out.

BNABAi Shirts Now Available

The first order of BNABAi Shirts are now available, with the exception of those ladies who ordered with pockets (they have not come in as yet).

They look like the photo above, minus the poor excuse for a model:)

I think they look great and can’t wait to see our players wearing them. If you want to arrange to collect them with Tony Watson please let me know and I will try to accommodate.

The cost is $20 for members and $40 to non members. First preference is given to those who have placed an order and they are all named, however, there is a number of extra ones for purchase in a range of sizes.

BNABAi Win at Donnybrook

Friday 28th February saw BNABAi take a team of Triples to Donnybrook for their Prawn Day.

Vic McCullough (Woodford), Warren Cresdee (Geebung) and Tony Watson (Kallangur) won the event with 3 wins out of 3 for the day.

Donnybrook Club put on a great day and the Prawns for lunch were delicious. All 14 Teams played well during the day and the competition was strong.

It was great to see our team do well. Congratulations to the BNABAi players for attending this event and we hope to go to future events at Donnybrook.

Welcome to New Members

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome Tony Turisi (Red Hill) and Les Earl (Ferny Grove) to Brisbane Northside Arm Bowlers Association Inc.

We look forward to seeing Tony and Les on the greens in future tournaments.

With the addition of these members we have now exceeded 58 Members. What a great start to 2020.
