Bowling club’s new system a labour-saver
It’s a simple choice really:
A. A watering job that will take one person four and a half hours to complete using a hand-held hose
B. An automated irrigation system that does the job in 10 minutes.
Not surprisingly, the hardworking volunteers at the Croydon Bowling Club voted for ‘B’!
Like we said – simple.
Not so simple, however, was finding the money to make the change…
To do away with its old hand-held system and bring in the automated option, the Adelaide club required $21,000…
Luckily the Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing contributed $16,000 to help get the job done, courtesy of Round 45 of the Active Club Program.
Now, finally, the Croydon bowlers’ hand-held hose woes are a thing of the past – on one of their greens at least.
Better still, they’re confident the new system will reduce water waste, leaving the club’s finances rosier, and the green even greener!
