Marion Bowling Club to host 55th Carnival

At the Management Committee meeting held at Mitcham RSL last night, the selection of Marion Bowling Club to host the 55th National Carnival was confirmed.

Our older players will remember that Marion has successfully hosted the Jack Hamilton VC and Dr Sydney Krantz competitions for the last two Adelaide carnivals - including the milestone 50th Carnival.

In a departure from past practice, the Carnival Coordination group headed by Trevor Whitelaw recommended to the committee that Marion be granted the right to host both the Interstate Series and the Sir Arthur Lee National Fours Championship.

The reasoning was simply that Marion has the capacity, the voulnteers and the willingness to host both and, although a close run thing between Marion and two other clubs, Marion offered the best deal overall.

The opening ceremony will be held at Marion Bowling Club on Monday 29 April 2024 followed by the first two rounds of the Hamilton/Krantz series. Following a rest day, the National Fours Championship begins on Friday May 3rd.
