Akarana Bowls and Golf Complex Update
09 Jun 2016
Auckland Bowls has been working with the bowls sub committee set up by the Akarana Golf Club to progress this project to the required conclusion. We are currently two weeks away, from obtaining the price of the project, from our Quantity Surveyor. This will then allow us to have a qualified price on the whole facility.
The main area, we are working on is a marketing programme. We have that support from Sport Auckland, who in association with Auckland Bowls, and Auckland University, are working on an audio visual presentation to promote our project to the bowling community. The Sport Auckland representative is in Australia looking at a similar facility. We have also aligned ourselves with high profile NZ Bowlers and Australian associates who believe this project will deliver a first class facility as good as any in Australasia.
Also under development is the
governance mechanism. Along with Auckland Bowls, Sport Auckland, and
Akarana, we are looking to have a document in place shortly that will be
open for discussion, across both sports. It is great the Sport Auckland
is on board as again their input and expertise are at no cost.
We will continue to update all members as we progress, and we would like to thank you for your ongoing support.
Akarana Golf Club has set up a page on its website which provides some great background information - CLICK HERE if you would like to read in more detail about this project.
There is also a model of the proposed facility at the Auckland Bowls office, that anyone is welcome to view during normal Monday - Friday office hours.
