  • Mowbray Relief Fundraiser 27 April 2021

    The Mowbray Bowling Club suffered a terrible blow when their clubhouse and outbuildings were damaged in the relentless fire from the week before. The Somerset West Bowls Club pulled together to host a fundraiser on Freedom day. A 2-bowl Trips competition was held where new teams were drawn after each round. Each player kept their scores after each round, and the winner in each position was the player with the highest net score. At the end of the day we raised R10,000 for the Mowbray Relief Fund, made a lot of new friends and

  • Talent Show – 2019

    Sommies has Talent.  On 12th April the club hosted what could possibly become an annual talent show evening.  Besides all the bowls talent it would seem the members have many talents.  We had 12 performers strutting their stuff and it will certainly be an evening to remember and who will forget  the performance of Delilah from Jacques, Gerry's "Mr Cellophane", Ettiene's song from the heart, etc etc etc.    Fantastic stuff from all the performers.   [maxgallery
