This seems to be the year of centenaries (see earlier post re St Andrew's centenary). The Malvern Bowling Club is celebrating its centenary with a series of functions. We attended the centenary dinner, which was a spit roast and presentation night for one of the teams which won its division. Although we're not bowlers except at the most casual level, at all the functions we attend, the atmosphere is always welcoming and there are invariably interesting people to talk to. We even found out that there is a club song - the first line is "We are the gold and blues". Apparently any resemblance to the Carlton FC song is a mere coincidence. Anyway, the evening moved along smartly and the speeches were succinct. The bar prices are pretty good, too!
