Our Annual Probus Bowls Tournament at Ararat was scheduled to be held in March of this year, however with the onset of Covid19 we were forced to postpone. At the time we rescheduled to September 23rd 2020 in anticipation of this epidemic being well over by then, however it seems this will go on for some time yet. With restrictions on numbers, the age of our members and players, catering and other logistics our club has decided to abandon our 2020 tournament and will now work on next year being bigger and better than ever.
Please put a ring around MONDAY MARCH 29TH 2021 on your calendar. We look forward to seeing you all then.
