Maclean Bowling Club welcomes a full time bowls coordinator

Maclean Bowling Club has appointed Jayson Pinnock as the new bowls coordinator starting on Wednesday, January 16.

The Club’s board of directors have been concerned with the decline of bowls in recent years and decided to invest in a full time bowls coordinator to promote and grow the great game of lawns bowls.

Mark Williams, Secretary Manager believes that Jayson will be an asset to the Club and is confident that with Jayson on board Maclean will once again be leaders in the bowling community.

“Following the success of the motel opening last January, this year we are now concentrating on our core business being lawn bowls.”

Jayson has over 15 years experience in bowls which started when he took on the role as bowls coordinator at Kootingal for eight years. In this role he became a head selector for the district and zone.

The Club will hold a ‘meet the new bowls coordinator open day’ on Sunday January 13 at 10am.

The day provides a great opportunity for all existing bowlers and any members of the community to try their hand at lawn bowls and to meet Jayson.

The day will consist of two games of eight ends, mixed and single entry as well as a free sausage sizzle – no Green fees will be charged.

“We are putting the day on for all the bowlers and community members to meet myself as the new bowls coordinator of the Club,” Jayson said.

Jayson aims to engage current bowling members as well as market and build the game of lawn bowls to the community and surrounds.

“I hope to kick off barefoot bowls at the Club and increase the bowling membership in a declining market and to provide an option for families to enjoy the game as well and interact,” he said.
