History of the Ten-Pin Bowling in the Marion Probus Club
It was some time ago now that I was talking to (the late) John Beacham & he suggested that we may like to start a group of Probus members playing Ten Pin Bowling, as he was involved in the vision impaired bowlers in the Senior’s Games being held in Brisbane in 2016 (John won several Gold medals at these games.)
So, it came to be, that a few of our members went along to the Marion Bowland at Marion Westfield Shopping Centre to play. We had such a good time it was decided we would do this on a regularly basis. We have had some members that come every session & several that have come, then for whatever reason have not been seen since, however we have been playing each month since. It is unfortunate that the Tuesday doesn’t suit everyone but it wouldn’t matter what day was chosen this would be the case. Some players have come, some have gone, but those that are able, enjoy the fellowship & fun we have. Some roll the ball in the gutter some get Strikes but we all do both. Shiaking is a great part of the morning with laughter. Frustration too. It is very sad that John is not with us now and in his honour, the Trophy he supplied is now known as the John Beacham Trophy, to be presented to the player of the month at the Probus general meeting each month.
The Trophy goes to the winner each month except when I have a good reason to give the Trophy goes to the winner each month except when I have a good reason to give it to some other worthy player
