THE inaugural meeting of Kouga Nomad Bowls took place on May 3, 2005. Norman Maher was the first president, while Elles Staas and David Sweers represented the committee.

Sporting 28 bowlers, three bowling clubs were originally part of Kouga Nomad Bowls: Jeffreys Bay, Humansdorp and St Francis Bay. Today, Jeffreys Bay hosts all the monthly outings and boasts 46 members - 24 men and 22 ladies.

Nomads are registered members of bowls clubs and have no fixed abode. They play bowls in order to raise funds to help needy causes. It is a principle of Nomads that donations are not in cash, but rather in goods, products or services to members or groups of the community in need of help.

The money is raised by the members in the form of fine sessions at bowls outings, and when prizes are won the winner is expected to make a donation to Nomads.

Monthly prizes are donated by The Bay Pasta Co, Caltex Wavelands, Ozzies, The Wild Olive, Tarts and Roses, Personal Trust, Gabriel Jewellers and SA Breweries.

Local charities that Kouga Nomad Bowls have assisted include OPD, Assissi SPCA, St. Francis Hospice, Cansa, Santa Shoeboxes, Friends of Motor Neuron Diseases, JBay Victim Support Centre, Joshua Project, Golden Oldie Shoeboxes and Ithemba Family Support Centre.
