April 2016  The Club’s Annual Lawn Bowls Day held on 21st March at Engadine Bowling and Recreational Club was a huge success in anyone’s language as 25+ teams from fellow Probus clubs together with 8 teams from our club, over 120 players in all, participated in a very enjoyable social day “on the Green” - yes the weather gods smiled upon us once again.
The positive and rewarding after game feedback indicated that all enjoyed the hospitality afforded by our Club.
However, the success of the day could not have been achieved without our dedicated team of helpers: Judy and Harry Membrey, Denise and Alan Becker, Lorraine and John Martin, Elaine Burt and Kris Edwards.  Thanks all and well done.
Once again Judy Membrey and her band of merry helpers on behalf of the Sutherland Hospital Garden Kiosk Committee surpassed themselves in the provision of a variety of more than tasteful wraps for the afternoon snack.

Another more than enjoyable social afternoon was had by our bowling members at the “bowls day” hosted by Kurranulla Probus Club at Caringbah Bowling Club on Monday 30th May.
Our six teams of triples enjoyed success in a number of the games; however social companionship was a clear winner on a very pleasant day weather-wise.
The next bowls day is being hosted by the Probus Club of Sylvania Waters at Taren Point Bowling Club on Monday 27th June and the Club is being represented by two teams of triples.
Nominations for the day have now closed.

September 2016  The final bowls event for 2016 was held at Gymea Bowling Club on 29th August hosted by the Probus Club of Miranda.

Unfortunately the day was overcast and after about 8 ends play, the weather gods decided to vent their anger by raining-out play for the day. A very disappointing day for our hosts.

2016 was another successful year primarily due to the participatory support of our bowling members to whom we express our appreciation and look forward to another social year on the Green in 2017.

A special thank-you to all our unsung helpers for their efforts throughout the year and also the Club and green staff at Engadine.

The initial event for 2017 shall once again be scheduled for March to be hosted by our club at Engadine Bowling and Recreational Club. Details will be available in the New Year.
