The North Toowoomba Bowls Club (NTBC) will officially open their new $95,000 Outdoor Learning Centre & Multi-function Pavilion this Sunday 25 th August @ 2.00pm.

A $68,500 grant from the Australian Federal Government Sports Grants enabled the NTBC to proceed with the latest addition to the burgeoning, progressive club. Federal Member for Groom, Dr. John McVeigh, was instrumental in attaining the grant and assisted the club with their application.

With the backing of Dr. McVeigh, the project came to fruition with the club adding the extra finance with the help of numerous generous sponsors including the North Toowoomba Ladies Bowling Club who recently amalgamated with the men’s club.

Due to work commitments Dr. McVeigh can’t be in attendance on Sunday but he will be ably represented by his wife, Anita, who will address the club members and sponsors and perform the official proceedings.

The facility will be named the ‘Greg Andersen Pavilion’, in honour and recognition of 20-year member, Greg Andersen, who has served twice as President and twice as Vice President of the club during that time, as well as performing the duty of Property Manager for the past 10 years. He was the project manager during construction and spent countless voluntary
hours combined with his building skills to see the facility completed.

An afternoon tea will follow the official opening.
