Bear’s Big Day Out

by Team BV

One of Victoria’s best known bowlers, Chris “Bear” O’Meagher, is currently undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer.
The Melbourne Bowling Club and St Kilda Bowling Club are hosting an event, Bear’s Big Day Out – on Anzac Day – Wednesday April 25 – to show that the bowling community is all there to support Bear.
Bear’s wish is that we use the event to create awareness for Pancreatic Cancer.
The day will start with breakfast and registration at St Kilda Bowling Club at 8am. 
Cars can be parked at St Kilda Bowling Club and buses will provided to transport players between St Kilda and Melbourne Bowling Clubs over the course of the day. As it is Anzac Day, you may want to consider starting your day at the dawn service at the Shrine of Remembrance. 
The clubs plan to have a fours tournament throughout the day spread over the two clubs. All entries will be single entry and teams put together. Every game you will move so you get to play with different people each game. 
Bear’s family will be cooking all day so you won’t go hungry. The day will conclude with a presentation and smorgasbord dinner at Melbourne Bowling Club. 
Theme for the day is Islander mufti, i.e. Hawaiian shirts.

The cost for the day will be $30.00. Non-bowlers cost will be $20.00 for lunch and dinner. 
Pre-registration will be through Melbourne Bowling Club. 
If you, your business/employer or your club can help out with any donations to go towards the raffles and prizes it will be extremely appreciated. You can contact us on the email below.
Please let us know if you will be able to attend so we have an idea for numbers for the day. Feel free to pass this around and share it with others.
