Jill Fraser 2017 - 2018

I wish to extend a very warm welcome to the returning and new bowlers for the 2017-18 bowling season. It is my privilege to be the President of Auckland Bowls for this season and I hope to meet as many of you as possible throughout the year.
This year will be very exciting for Auckland Bowls with the implementation of Club Development programmes. Hopefully all the hard work will bring good results for the participating Clubs.
Once again the season will be a very busy one and most weekends will be full of playing opportunities for all players. Please take advantage of these opportunities to play this wonderful game.
We are looking forward to hosting The Trusts New Zealand Open in February at Blockhouse Bay Bowls. We are very pleased to have The Trusts as the naming rights sponsor for the event once again. As the Nationals are in Dunedin this season, all Auckland players should take advantage of playing in this prestigious tournament in their city.
To all out sponsors, who make such a large contribution to the successful running of events, thank you for your continued support. Many of you have been with us for a number of years and we appreciate your continued support.
I would like to acknowledge and give a very special thank you to the many volunteers at Club, Centre and National level who give many hours of their time to the game. Your work is critical for the success of bowls.
I wish all bowlers a successful season and may all the “wicks” go your way.
