Welcome all and thank-you Birchmore president Jenny Clifford for the use of Birchmore’s facilities for the 2019 KI Patrons Day.

I would like to introduce the patrons from each Club, Kingscote has Charles Bell and Helen Barrett, Birchmore has Terry Bennett, Stuart Boxer and Betty Collins, Parndana has Peter McGill and Val Lockett, who was unable to attend.

Today we honour the patrons of each club for their support and contribution to bowls on Kangaroo Island. Thank-you for your donations towards the raffles for here and Kingscote.

I thank tournament director Mark Capon for organising this tournament and I wish you all good bowling for the 2019-2010 season.

I would like to congratulate Parndana on their determination on attaining their new green and wish them all the best for the future.

I would also like to congratulate Kingscote, last year’s winners of the Country Carnival, a first I believe for the players all coming from the one club.

I would now like Kingscote patron Charles Bell to send the jack down, followed by a bowl from Birchmore patron Betty Collins and a bowl by Parndana patron Peter McGill.

Thank-you, I now declare our season officially open and wish you all a good year of bowling. – Leonie Bell, KI Bowls Asssociation President
