WHO HAS PRODUCED GET A GAME OF BOWLS
Getagameofbowls has been produced by R & R Tuck Pty Ltd. The author, Bob Tuck, is a member of Brighton Bowling Club, located in the South Western suburbs of Adelaide. He has played bowls for 12 years, is past president of his club and works as a volunteer for BowlsSA.
In 2001 he experimented with a web site for local clubs in SA to advertise tournaments but did not complete the project.
During winter 2007 he planned a trip through NSW and Queensland which was to include playing as many games of bowls as he could fit with the itinery. The organization of these games took about 40 phone calls, and even where clubs had a web site, he found that these sites did not readily tell him on which days he could visit the club for a social game. When he visited other clubs he was welcomed and most indicated that they would like to see more visitors. He realized that it was not only his club which had difficulty filling social and prize money tournaments
When he returned home he set to work developing getagameofbowls to be a national site.
