Fashion Parade

We’re really excited to be working with Sarah from our local Sarah’s Boutique to launch our first MBBC Fashion Show on Thursday 22nd November as our major fundraiser for the year.   

Come and enjoy a fun evening with friends checking out this season’s latest fashions from top NZ and international labels while sipping on a complimentary glass of bubbles!

We’ve got our own club “models” cat walking the latest fashions from all your favourite brands including French Freddie, Blackstone, David Pond, Seven Sisters, Noa Noa, Vassalli and many more.

You’ll also be in to win some great door and spot prizes, as well as be able to go in for a special raffle there’ll also be music and the bar will be open.  And for those peckish people we’ll also be serving yummy nibbles throughout the night, so it should be a great evening out for all ages, plus an opportunity to support the club & help raise funds towards the cost of replacing the carpet green.

Early Bird Tickets are $15.00 each & include a glass of bubbles (or OJ) on arrival, plus nibbles. 
Alternatively, it will be $20 on the door. 
Time is 6.30 to 8.00pm

All lady club members will be given 2 tickets with the request to please sell them – buy one & bring a friend! 
And gentlemen, encourage your wives/partners, daughters, mums & sisters to come. 

This event is also featured on the Mairangi Bay Facebook page which can be found on the top right hand corner on our website. 

We’d like to get as many non-club members there as well so even if you can’t make it, if you can Like the event on Facebook and Share it online with your friends that would be great!
This is a major fundraiser for the club, so please come to support and don’t miss this opportunity to get ahead of the season and start your wardrobe planning in time for summer!

We would like to use our Facebook page to reach more people when advertising events & tournaments. If club members could Like the Mairangi Bay Bowling Club Facebook page and Like or Share our various different events and posts we would be able to reach out to more people & hopefully increase our tournament entries. Especially for events such as the Harcourts Classic (Jan 30, 31) & Founders which will be held on April 10 & 11 & will be run as an Any Combination Triples.

Last year we extended an invitation to all the Retirement Villages in our area to enter a team (s) to play on our wonderful greens. We had 18 visiting teams plus 12 club teams on the day & they all voted to make it an annual event.

This year the date is Tuesday, November 20th & invitations have once again been sent to all the Villages. We need at least 10 Mairangi teams to help mix things around. The entry sheet (single entry) is up on the notice board. Please help make this a successful day

Entries are coming in for the Harcourts Fun Day on November 30th.
We will take both (Mixed) team & single entries. Dress code is mufti.
Emphasis on this day is a Fun Day out so we there may be a few surprises.
First to Fourth places plus a Lucky Draw will be ham vouchers but every team will win a prize.
Harcourts Cooper & Co are a very generous sponsor & their personnel will be at Prizegiving so we want to make this a very successful day.

As it is quite early for hams the lucky prize winners will be given Ham vouchers & will be able to collect their hams from the club from Friday, December 7th.
