Inside Bowls Magazine

Airlie Beach Bowls Club was very privileged to have David Allen as our Guest at the Men’s Classic Fours Tournament over the weekend of October 1 & 2. David’s first experience of Airlie Beach came during the BPL Cup at Moama in February 2022. David could not help but see the likes of Ted, Terry, Matto, Neil, Ali & Co cheering on our BPL Cup team of Luke, Millsie & Manny and most of the BPL teams as well. A big thanks to Manny for assisting in having David come to the club for the Tournament. We may see an article in a coming edition of Inside Bowls Magazine. Thank you, David.
