The Maclean Bowling Club has been confirmed as a finalist in the ‘Support of Amateur Sport’ category of the 2019 Clubs & Community Awards.
The State wide award will be announced at the awards night function, to be held in Sydney, on 2 November 2019.
Maclean Bowling Club manager Mark Williams said that it was nice to be recognised within the community as a club which is making a difference.
“There would be a lot of sporting clubs in this town that wouldn’t exist without us (financially supporting them). The growing costs of grounds and council fees have certainly made a difference,” he said.
Mr Williams said that the Maclean Bowling Club was up against some tough competition, to become a finalist in the Clubs NSW awards.
“We were up against some of the bigger clubs in the state; Blacktown Workers Club, South West Rocks Country Club, Tradies (Sutherland District Trade Union Club), etc,” he said.
“I think in terms of the Board, Management and the staff, if we do get any sort of mention at the awards, it would be extremely important for us, because we are just a small community club trying to compete with the big clubs – but you have to start somewhere.
“The finals will be in November and I’m sure we will have judges coming around before that, to see what we’ve done and can do for the future,” he said.
