Lights, camera, action at Mount Eliza BC
The lights went on, the stars came out.
Mount Eliza Bowling Club’s successful 2015-16 season opening christened both their new synthetic greens and floodlights in style, showcasing bowls as a sport which the whole family can be involved in.
Three generations of one family, headed by Mount Eliza BC life member John Gregson, took part in a unique bowling demonstration under the Mount Eliza lights.
John’s grandsons – Victorian and Australian rep Dylan Fisher and seven-year-old Jett Simmons – joined him on the green along with Jett’s father Todd Simmons for a special moment in their family’s, and Mount Eliza’s history.
They played against Mount Eliza’s reigning men’s and ladies’ club champions and runners-up Phil Crowder, David Gibbon, Kim Ronan and Liz Eccles-Smith.
For John and Dylan, it rewound the clock 10 years to when they teamed to win the pairs championship, with Dylan then an 11-year-old.
Club president Ken Broadbent presided over the night, with federal Small Business Minister Bruce Billson, state MP David Morris and Bowls Victoria director Phil Gude among the guests.
