Greetings from South Canterbury,
Our Centre is looking forward to hosting the 66th NZ National Indoor Bowls in June 2015.
We have a very experienced committee, many of whom were involved in the running of the 2009 Nationals we hosted.
The venue has been booked, and is the SBS stadium on Morgans Road in Timaru. (Same as 2009). It is a great venue with room for 90+ mats, and has good seating downstairs as well as a lovely viewing area upstairs.
The upstairs lounge will also house the caterer and the licenced bar.
Timaru has a good variety of accommodation on offer, as does the surrounding areas of Temuka, Geraldine, Pleasant Point and Waimate. All these places are within 30-40 mins drive of the Stadium. The committee will not be handling accommodation requests this time, but would suggest advertising locally or seeking information from the Timaru Information centre. Links will also be on our Nationals page.
We are in the process of finalising some entertainment and dine/dance options for your social hours. These will likely be at the RSA, Cossie Club and Timaru T&C as well as the Timaru Indoor Bowls Community Centre on Ranui Ave.
These Nationals are also offering an over 60's section as well as the Open events, so now is the time to think about what section you wish to enter in if this applies to you.
Most of all we are looking forward to welcoming you into our lovely part of the country, to enjoy a great week of bowls, and hopefully get the opportunity to have a look around our region.
See you in 2015
