The Tuncurry Forster Sporty’s Travelling bowlers’ annual five day trip was down to the South Coast this year and we left early Friday morning with everyone looking forward to it.
Morning tea was at Ourimbah with lots of home made goodies from our members.
We had a stop at Campbelltown RSL for lunch and arrived at Huskisson mid afternoon.
Saturday we played at St Georges Basin Country Club.
Although conditions were windy and warm everyone enjoyed the hospitality the gift of a lanyard and a delicious baked lunch.
Sunday was a game at Huskisson Bowling Club.
We were given a refreshing salad lunch and then went out to have our game.
Although still warm the wind was not quite as bad.
It was great to meet such lovely people at these South Coast clubs and am sure friendships will have been made that will last a lifetime.
Monday we visited the Royal Australian Navy Heritage Centre.
It was so interesting to see the displays of boats, planes, helicopters etc.
One of the guides had actually flown every plane there.
This was followed by lunch at Nowra Ex-Services Club.
We ended our day with a visit to Jervis Bay Maritime Museum. Once again a very interesting display which I'm sure rekindled many memories for everyone.
We had a stop over at the Kiama Blowhole for morning tea on our way home and lunch at Westfield Tuggerah.
Our trip home was uneventful which made for good timing arriving back in Tuncurry in the late afternoon.
Once again a big thanks to our organisers who had efficiently made all the arrangements for the trip which made it such a success.
Also to our bus driver Mal Prewitt.
Our next bowling day will be our Christmas party on Sunday, December 11.
