In what could be described as a breakthrough, initial talks of a new home for the King Rotary Club were recently held.
The move, if it does take place, would see the town’s Rotary Club members relocate from the King Club to the King Bowling Club.
The intended move was discussed at a King Bowling Club monthly meeting attended by Rotary members.
Asked if the club would be big enough to accommodate Rotary, it was pointed out by Rotary member Dave Heathcote that the building of a clubhouse adjacent to the bowling club was a possibility.
“We have a lot of regalia collected over the years and this has to be housed,” he said.
Of benefit to the bowling club is that all Rotarians would be signed on as social members and the club’s bar would be utilised on a regular basis.
Positive talks regarding the way forward are ongoing.
Meanwhile, it is going to be a busy few weeks ahead for bowlers.
The club will be staging their annual Old Buck-sponsored Classic from October 13 to 14 and with R8,000 going to the winning team, a good turnout is expected.
The King Classic will be followed with two King teams attending the Molteno Classic to be held on October 27 and 28 while teams from King will also attend the annual Millie Hansel Bowls Day set for Sunday November 4 in Stutterheim.
On November 2, the King Bowling Club will stage their annual King’s Got Talent which is an event at which members are encouraged to overcome their inhibitions by venturing onto the stage.
The King Bowling Club’s annual general meeting is set for October 24.
