PORT Shepstone Lions once again hosted the National Association of Blind Bowlers Tournament. The event was held at the Riverside Sports Club in Uvongo during the weekend of 3-4 September.

Blind bowlers travelled from various parts of KZN to participate in this annual tournament.

Port Shepstone Lions have been involved with the KZN NABB - National Association of Blind Bowlers - since 1981. The annual weekend tournament means a great deal to the blind bowlers and for the past 35 years the Port Shepstone Lions have organised the competition and secured sponsorship for travel, meals, prizes and accommodation.

Apart from the games, the weekend included accommodation and meals. Hibiscus Rotary Ann’s provided Saturday lunch and the Port Shepstone Lion and Lion Ladies provided and served dinner on Saturday evening, after which the visitors were entertained by Derek Jackson.

Port Shepstone Lions are most grateful to event organiser Madeleine Gouws, who, on behalf of the club, organised the event as well as several sponsorships.

The Lions thank the Riverside Sports Club in Uvongo for their venue and hospitality.

The club is also indebted to their main event sponsor, National Braiding Industries, as well as all other sponsors who made generous donations towards this annual project.
