Vale Ron Mitchell
Bowls SA is saddened to let our bowls community know of the passing of Ron Mitchell on the weekend.
Throughout his time, Ron put endless effort into Bowls in South Australia, in many roles. An esteemed member of the West Lakes Bowling Club, Ron also served on a number of committees and of late will be remembered for his herculean effort in being the first President of the Metropolitan Bowls Association.
Ron was also a former Bowls SA Board Member and Chair of the Coaching & Junior Development committee for a number of years. Many a junior bowler can attribute their start and development in the sport thanks to Ron.
Ron won an Administrator of the Year and a Coach of the Year award during his outstanding service to lawn bowls in South Australia.
Condolences to the Mitchell family and the West Lakes Bowling Club
