Probus Club of Fremantle Barefoot Bowls Day

New Outing Officers Jenny and Peter organized a most successful event at the East Fremantle Bowling Club when 23 members and partners attended. They enlisted Tony Cox as the Bowling Master.

The name ‘barefoot” comes from those who do not have the approved bowling smooth soled shoes go barefooted to protect the greens. The weather and the greens were perfect, offsetting the less than perfect performances by our members. The major problem with our members concerning bowling is that they are all extremely nice people and who have no bias against anyone. Therefore most showed equal respect to the bowling ball and totally ignored its bias, resulting in many balls wandering all over the green and joining in with the ones in the neighbouring teams.

A variety of prizes were given out amid much laughter. The serious winners received wine and the spot prizes were socks with attitude. In keeping with the theme of Barefoot Bowls, there were prizes of feet with one shown in a photo above. All present then tucked into copious amounts of pizzas covering all tastes. V. President Kath thanked Jenny, Peter, Tony and also all the contestants. We certainly achieved the Probus aim of “Fun” in large quantities with our Barefoot Bowls Evening.
