ASGA Queensland hosts inaugural bowls night

The Australian Sign & Graphics Association (ASGA) held its inaugural social bowls night in Brisbane on Friday 23 February, with the association confident the event will become a feature of the annual calendar following its local success.

The networking event is part of a series of bowls events to be hosted around the country following a successful pilot by ASGA’s South Australian Committee over the past couple of years.

More than 40 bowlers registered for the event, which was sponsored by Orafol and held at the BOO, and follows the success of the first ASGA Victorian Bowls Event earlier this month at the Melbourne Bowling Club in Windsor, which reported more than 30 industry members in attendance.

“The BOO is a great venue and the bowls competition provided a great ice-breaker and a bit of fun,” ASGA vice-president, Damian Nielsen, said.

“The friendly competition definitely took second place to the socialising and networking, with everyone who came along appreciating the chance to catch up with their industry colleagues.

“A huge thank you to everyone who attended, and to Orafol for their generous sponsorship of this event, the third they’ve sponsored for ASGA in as many months.”

Given the positive response, Nielsen said the event is likely to become a regular on the ASGA Queensland calendar, and more social bowls nights are expected to be announced later in the year for other states.
