Round Table Hochland 154 successfully hosted its annual Bowls Day on Friday, March 8th, 2024, themed “Mexican”.

For this year, we made strategic changes to widen our participant base, resulting in a highly successful turnout. Thanks to the continued support of Wilderness Safaris, our main sponsor, we managed to gather some great items for auction, and we welcomed a total of 20 teams, totaling 80 players, all vying for the coveted Hochland 154 Bowls Day floating trophy.

The event raised a remarkable N$85,500 from team entries and an additional N$20,700 through auction items generously sponsored by members of the private and business sectors.

The day kicked off with participants arriving around 12:30, registering, and enjoying a light lunch before being briefed on the day’s proceedings. Each team engaged in a minimum of 4 games and 6 legs of bowling before the ultimate victor was determined. The live entertainment by “The Ells” added to the festive atmosphere, with guests joining in the sing-alongs.

Following the games, everyone convened in the hall for dinner, the prize-giving, and the eagerly anticipated auction.

The prize-giving was a highlight, with every participant walking away with a prize. The ambiance was further enhanced by delicious food, and the camaraderie of our esteemed guests. This event truly exemplified teamwork, with Round Table going above and beyond to ensure a day filled with fellowship, laughter, and spirited competition.

Congratulations to Wilderness Safaris for clinching the winner’s trophy, reclaiming it from Momentum and pledging to return next year to defend their title.

After covering all expenses, we are pleased to announce that the proceeds will be distributed among three beneficiaries: Children in the Wilderness (N$15,570), Sofia Soup Kitchen (N$11,667), and SOS Children’s Village (N$11,667).

On behalf of Round Table Hochland 154, I would like to extend a heartfelt gratitude to the team entrants, participants, sponsors, Eros Bowls Club, caterers, and all Hochlanders for their invaluable support in making this event a resounding success.

The day was filled with laughter, camaraderie, and valuable lessons learned. We look forward to building upon this success for future Bowls Days.

Yours in Table
