Bowls Victoria would like to thank everyone involved. From our 20 incredible clubs who welcomely open their doors each year to more than three-and-a-half thousand competitors, and to the tireless efforts of the volunteers, we couldn’t do it without you. And of course, every player who came to compete.

Last but not least, our event partners and sponsors; Greater Shepparton Council, Furphy Brewery, Taylor Bowls, Karingal Bowling Club and our event charity partner Pancare. Thank you to all 80 bowlers who took part in this year’s Pancare Day MegaBowl and to all who donated to such a fantastic cause.
