Hansie Meyer in Memoriam

By | News | No Comments

Dit is met groot hartseer dat Retire @ Midstream Rolbalklub op 3 Januarie 2019 permanent afskeid geneem het van Hansie Meyer

Met die tema “n groot boom het geval” het ‘n stampvol kerk met familie en vriende van Hansie afskeid geneem.

As huldeblyk aan ‘n spesiale mens het meer as 40 mede rolbalspelers na die diens ‘n erewag binne en buite die kerk gevorm.


Hansie se lidmaatskap en deelname aan die rolbalklub is ook “verewig” met ‘n informele seremonie wat op Saterdag 12 Januarie by die rolbal-klubhuis plaasgevind het. Tydens hierdie geleentheid is Hansie se “tab” deur sy dogter, Lizette Wessels, op die “In Memoriam”-bord in die klubhuis aangebring.

 

BOWLING GREEN FACELIFT

By | News | No Comments
It is that time of the year that the Midstream Bowling Club is at its quietest, providing the opportunity to close down outside play for important maintenance work.  This year the outside bowling green is not only being scarified, but also leveled with silica sand to ensure that all unevenness is being taken care of. In order to accommodate Bowlers during this time play continuous twice a day on the inside synthetic green  on normal bowling days.

Dries van der Merwe oorhandig ‘n muurhorlosie aan Gerhard van der Westhuizen

R@M Bowls het op 5 Mei ‘n heerlike braai gehou.

By die geleentheid het Dries van der Merwe (die vorige President van die klub), ‘n muurhorlosie aan die huidige President , Gerhard van der Westhuizen, oorhandig. Die horlosie is aangebring teen die buitemuur van die klubhuis en kan van enige plek op die buiteperk gesien word. Baie dankie Dries!! Dit was ‘n uitstekende gedagte en sal die klub altyd herinner aan jou onbaatsugtige diens aan die klub.
Die klub het oor die laaste ses maande sterk gegroei vanaf 54 na 80 lede. Verlede Saterdag was die rekord gebreek vir ‘n sosiale spel toe 37 mense opgedaag het om te kom deelneem

R@M Bowls Club is an open club and therefore anyone is welcome to apply for membership. In the past year we started an initiative to introduce the club and the game to the wider Midstream community by:

  • Hosting a number of corporate days as well as a “buddy” day. These events were hugely successful and again showed that bowls is a game that is enjoyed by people of all ages.
  • Starting an evening game at our indoor facilities. This has become increasingly popular as it is not dependant on the weather and suits people with busy schedules.

In the wake of the success of the past year we plan to create even more opportunities this year for the community to participate and enjoy the game, including:

  1. Free training

All you need to do is to make an appointment with Danie du Preez (details below)

  1. “Buddy” days
  • Teams are put together consisting of players and buddies
  • This is a really enjoyable event and quite a number of buddies joined our club after last year’s buddy day
  • Bowls are made available to buddies
  1. Introduction days to school children

We plan to contact the schools directly to arrange special days for the children

  1. Corporate days
  • Companies are invited to use our facilities for team building purposes
  • This is an excellent and enjoyable way for colleagues to meet, compete and enjoy team building in a completely different way
  • The services include a support team of club members providing basic coaching and support to the teams
  • Food and drinks are offered as part of the service
  • Rates are very reasonable
  1. Club matches, Open days and League matches

For the more competitive players, we offer:

  • Club matches where members or teams could challenge each other
  • Open days where teams from other clubs are invited to participate
  • League competitions: for the past few years our teams competed in the reserve league and both our women and men’s teams stand a good chance to end up at the top of the log in the current season
