The Gateway 2016 Pennant Draw - Now Available

Grant Workshop - 28th June at 10am

State Department of Sport and Recreation

Tuesday 28th. June 2016
commencing at 10.00 am.

On Monday 13th June 2016 members of the Gateway District Executive, met with representatives of the State Department of Sport and Recreation. The purpose of this meeting was to acquaint us with the funding that is available to Clubs wishing to improve their facilities etc.

The representative gave us a very comprehensive insight into the procedure for applying for grants and expressed a desire to meet with Club members to explain the system to them. They also said that they would be willing to assist applicants with applications for funding.

Applications for funding will be open from 1st July until 1st September.

As the District sees this as a great opportunity for our member Clubs to get first hand knowledge of the system, a meeting with the Department has been arranged to be held at MANLY BOWLS CLUB ON TUESDAY 28TH. June 2016 commencing at 10.00 am. At this meeting paper work will be distributed.

Clubs are invited to bring at least two members to the meeting. We believe that it will be of great benefit to Clubs.

Would you please advise District Secretary, Earle Klease if your Club is interested and if so the number of people attending.
