The Wallaroo Bowling Club has hailed its recent ‘Year of the Mask’ Invitation Day a success after attracting strong numbers.

The event, which was held on Friday, November 13, attracted up nearly 100 bowlers from across the region.

Club secretary Mim Topham said the event was a resounding success.

“We had an absolute full house from clubs all around the district, so we didn’t have to put any of our teams in, which was really good,” she said.

“We have 12 rinks here and they were all full.

“Everyone was asked to wear a mask and they came in all kinds different mask arrangements.

“They found it a little bit hard to bowl in some of them.

“They had a morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, and they had a brilliant day.”

Mim thanked a specific group of individuals for their efforts in getting the event up and running.

“The event was catered for and organised by all the volunteers at our club,” she said.

“They do a fantastic job time and time again.”

Mim said the club was “very very lucky” to have hosted the event before the latest COVID-19 cluster forced the entire state into lockdown.

“We feel so sorry for those with events coming up this week, like Moonta, who are not able to do theirs, but mind you they might be able to choose another date,” she said.

Mim said the club is now looking forward to the remainder of its 2020/21 calendar.

“No events before Christmas, then we sort of go into the club events and country carnival,” she said.

“We have had to put off our internal club events, which were ongoing when we got called off.

“The next big event we will have will be the Seafood Spectacular in April.”
