Due to unforeseen circumstances, the North Toowoomba Bowls Club has postponed their 70th Anniversary Celebrations to a date to be advised later this year. A planned Triples competition for this Friday, 26th January, would have commemorated the very exact day that the club was formed 70 years ago.
While the date, 26th January, is now of national significance in Australia, back in 1948 it was just like any other day of the week and just happened to be the date a group of Toowoomba citizens got together and formed a bowls club in North Toowoomba, on the corner of Lemnos Street & Elworthy Street.
From humble beginnings, as a sparse paddock, the club has progressed to be one of the premier bowls club’s in the region, with two superb, 8 rink bowls greens that are the envy of every bowls club, and excellent club house facilities to meet the needs of not only bowls club members, but accommodate the Harlaxton RSL Sub Branch; the Harlaxton RSL Brass Band and the Jazz Society of Toowoomba.
For further information about joining the club or playing social bowls, contact the North Toowoomba Bowls Club on 4639 2338, email [email protected] or go to NTBC Facebook page.
