New toilet block


 

 

New Toilet Block

Hi All

 

It is with great excitement I report the outcome from Dave and myself meeting with COJ officials and Cr Tom McLean – Wed.  9/5/19.

 

Due to outstanding records and grant submissions by our very own "Jack Russell Terrier' Dave Saunders and some strong intervention from Tom, we have been successful in being given approval in principle for our original Toilet Block plan to go ahead.

A few more hoops to jump through but these are formalities.

 

We will build

1 male, 1 female and 1 unisex ambulant toilet along with a storeroom in the “original” planned position.

 

We undertook that the bowling club would guarantee (not necessarily pay) the payment of additional charges which will amount to no more than $2500 per year which comes from approx $600 per toilet in rates and water usage costs. A couple of raffles each week will cover that. 

 

Exciting times ahead and the most difficult thing for us is to decide who gets to be the first person to use them!!

 

Well done again Dave the Terrier!

 

Chris Leggett

President - JLBC

Impending changes to artificial devices policy (BOWLING ARMS)


 

BY AIDAN DAVIS (BOWLS AUSTRALIA)

Bowls Australia’s (BA) Board has signalled an impending change to the national Artificial Devices Policy, pertaining specifically to the use of bowlers arms.

 

The revised Artificial Devices Policy, which will come into effect from May 1, 2019, has removed the existing stipulation that players need to have received approval from the State/Territory Association to use a bowlers arm, and also removes the need for a medical certificate to use a bowlers arm.

 

The changes to the policy come after extensive consultation and feedback from key stakeholders.

It is envisaged that the leniency will result in greater opportunity for persons with physical restrictions and impairments to continue playing the sport, and is in line with the policies of other national bodies.

Further to the changes, Bowls Australia wishes to clarify the procedure to request replacement National Merchandising Program (NMP) logo stickers for approved bowlers’ arms.

In the event that an approved bowlers’ arm’s existing National Merchandising Program (NMP) logo sticker has come off due to wear and tear over time, Bowls Australia may be contacted to request a replacement sticker be posted out, to then affix to the arm.

Players will need to provide details of their arm (ideally a photo) so that BA can confirm that the device is indeed an approved bowlers arm, which can be done by post or email to admin@bowls.com.au.

 

Any queries relating to these changes to the policy can be raised with BA’s Tony Sherwill or Bronwyn White on 03 9480 7100 or admin@bowls.com.au.

THE Joondalup Sports Association is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

Based at the Iluka Sports Complex, which was officially opened on April 18, 1999, the association hosts the Joondalup Bowling Club, Joondalup City Football Club and Joondalup Districts Cricket Club and until last year, the Joondalup Lakers Hockey Club.

It now has more than 1100 members, with an active list of players, parents and social members, as well as a sports bar, function rooms and restaurant – The Pitch Inn.

Association president Julian Barley said it all started early in 1996 when the City of Wanneroo (before the City of Joondalup was created) approached the Craigie Lawn Bowls Club (which became the Beaumaris Bowling Club and in 2013, then Joondalup Bowling Club), North Perth Cricket Club and the Joondalup Lakers Hockey Club to relocate to Iluka and become the Beaumaris Sports Association, later re-named the Joondalup Sports Association.

 

Iluka Sports Complex under construction in 1998.

 

After funding from the State Government was received in 1997, work began on the Iluka Sports Complex.

“The inaugural members of the bowling committee were involved in preparing the international sized greens by spreading turf and the cricket club funded special soil for their wicket facilities,” Mr Barley said.

The first bowl on the green was in October 1998 and with a liquor licence granted later that year, the first beer in the sports bar was pulled in January 1999.”

The Joondalup Districts Cricket Club moved to Iluka in the 2000-01 season after 25 years at Charles Veryard Reserve in North Perth as the North Perth Districts Cricket Club.

 

The club was founded in 1889 and is the most successful club in the WACA competition.

It has four senior and eight junior teams and has produced test players including Wally Edwards, Mike Veletta, Martin McCague and Stuart MacGill.

The Joondalup Bowling Club, originally the Craigie Lawn Bowling Club, was established in 1996 and now has four high quality grass greens.

It has ladies’ and men’s pennants teams and is home to state under-18 representatives Ben and Ruby Leggett.

The club also has free coaching, community and corporate bowls and social bowls all year round, and bingo every Monday night.

The inaugural club president and major driving force behind the establishment of the club, Geoff Newton, passed away last year but remaining foundation members Eric and Val Buck, Scott Baldock and David Webber are life members and still very active in the club.

 

Then: Iluka Sports Complex in 1998.

 

The Joondalup City Football Club was founded in 1989 and now has 55 teams ranging from under-five to over-45, as well as state league senior, junior NPL and community teams.

 

Now: Iluka Sports Complex in 2018

Gardening Roster


 

Roster dates for  -  May 2019 are as follows:-

Mon  May 6th      - Brian Vandervelde

Mon May 13th -   Steve Richards

Mon May 20th  -   Marilyn Thorp

Mon May 27th  -   Ackroyd Sleigh

 

Planning the gardening roster is part of the ‘Greens portfolio’ but does not involve attending the monthly Management Committee meetings. It is hoped that next season one of the existing team, or perhaps another club member, will ‘step forward’ and nominate to take on this important job. It is easy to organise and very necessary in order to ensure the ongoing maintenance standards of the gardens and surrounds.………….



PLEASE CONSIDER:

The gardening duties are only of a light nature and for an hour or so every few weeks. Those members who would prefer to help out on an occasional basis will be most welcome and can simply turn up on any Monday morning and assist the rostered volunteer.

very much appreciated.

 

Dave Saunders

Greens Committee Chairperson.

JOB OPPORTUNITY

 


JBC is growing rapidly with new members now having to wait to begin their coaching. The club needs more qualified coaches, both men & ladies.

 

Coaching is very rewarding and will definitely improve the level of the coach’s own bowls. Hours will vary according to demand; but 2 more qualified coaches will result in about 2 hours per week being needed to assist. You don’t have to be the best bowler in the club to be a good coach; just able to analyse & improve new bowlers’ techniques and help them enjoy the game.

The pay is sensational and doubles each year!!!!!

 

If you can assist or need more information, please see Eric Buck or Geoff Stevenson.
