PORT Shepstone Lions once again hosted the National Association of Blind Bowlers (NABB-KZN Region) tournament at the Riverside Bowling Club in Uvongo last weekend. A large number of blind bowlers travelled to the South Coast from all over the province to compete against a team of bowlers from Riverside Bowling Club.

The annual weekend tournament means a great deal to the blind bowlers and, for the past 36 years Port Shepstone Lions have organised the competition and secured sponsorship for travel, meals, prizes and accommodation. Hibiscus Rotary Anns provided the Saturday lunch and the Port Shepstone Lions and Lion Ladies provided and served dinner on the Saturday evening.

The official prize-giving ceremony took place on the Saturday. During his address, Port Shepstone Lions’ president Denis Meyer thanked all participants, spoke of his club’s long-standing involvement with this tournament and paid tribute to all involved with the organising of the tournament.

He then presented the Port Shepstone Lions’ Blind Bowlers floating trophy to the winning team representative, Ann Osborne of the Riverside Bowling Club.

NABB (KZN Region) chairman, Peter Lonsdale then addressed the guests and paid tribute to the Port Shepstone Lions Club and the fact that Lions Clubs International are, this year, celebrating a century of service to mankind. Guests were then treated to excellent musical entertainment by the very talented singer Winston Smile.
