    The Future of the TBA

    I was a big supporter of Cara and we spoke from time to time, aside from when i was chair of the NSW Board. For me It was certainly time for Cara to move on , some of her decisions were a disgrace to the Sport. We don't need another Accountant as CEO. When it comes to some of the Board members...

    Plans to build new centre in Goulburn

    I actually owned Goulburn Bowl for a few years from 1986. It was a great little Centre, we had a lot of fun in those days. Sadly we had to sell out in 1989 and the new owners faced issues that caused its eventual closure in approx 1992

    Plans to build new centre in Goulburn

    Wagga Wagga is another example. It was a very good Centre with a huge business in the 70's and 80's but it died and closed. A new genre opened a couple of years ago. Sylvania Bowl in Sydney closed down and reopened as Southgate in the early 80's i think. for some years it was a Huge lineage...
