MEMBERSHIP of the Club is achieved by filling in an application form, having it signed by current members, and submitting the completed application to the Club. If you do not know any current members, come into the Club and have a chat with either a Board Member or a Member of the Ladies or Men's Council and they will do whatever is necessary for you to become a member. Note that there are different application forms depending on whether you want to become a Social Member or a Full Bowling Member. Application forms are available from the Club or you can download a Club application by clicking on the appropriate link below.
After you have submitted the completed application it will be posted on the noticeboard and it will also come before the appropriate Council for their approval. Once approved you will receive notification of that approval and all that remains to be done is for you to pay the fees. When the fees have been received you will be given a Membership Card.
The Membership Year is the financial year, ie July to June. For the year ending June 2015, the annual fee is $85 with an application fee of $11 and for bowlers transferring from another Club there may also be a transfer fee depending on which jurisdiction you are transferring from. Should you join at some time later during the financial year, the annual fee is adjusted according to how much time remains before the end of the Membership Year.
Once you are a Member, you are entitled to use all the facilities of the Club. Social Members (and Visitors) are entitled to have a roll-up at appropriate times for a fee of $2 while roll-ups are free for Bowling Members.
Bowling Members who are also a Full Member of another Club in the Gold Coast-Tweed District have to nominate which Club is to be their Club for Pennants and Club Championships, and are not permitted to play in Club Championships or Pennants at their second Club despite having paid full fees (which include fees payable to GC-Tweed District and Queensland Bowls).
