2018 Shinju Matsuri 



Open Mixed Fours Tournament



 Broome Bowling Club would like to invite you to nominate a team for this year's event which will run from Thursday 23 to Sunday 26 August, 2018.  Attached is the nomination form for your team and an accompanying flyer. 


We are fortunate to have our Tournament Directors, John Goddard & Grant Nicol, join us again this year so you are assured of a well run event with a touch of humour to make it all the more enjoyable.  We will follow the same successful format of previous years with teams receiving a complimentary shirt together with lunches and snacks on the days when they bowl.  The biggest change will be seen on the bowling green as our current green suffered damage during the cyclone season of 2017/2018 and is anticipated to be replaced before commencement of the Tournament.  No doubt this news will see us inundated with teams wanting to participate so we ask that you get back to us as soon as possible. We have set our maximum number of teams at 24 on a first in first served basis again this year with the closing date for nominations being 3 August, 2018.


We look forward to receiving your team's nomination and having you share the experience of the Shinju Tournament at the Broome Bowling Club with us this year.
