Tasmanian Team Presentation Night.
Tonight saw the Tasmanian Open Team Presentation Night on the eve of the Super 6 National Championships. The players were presented with their new State uniforms that will be unvailed to the public tomorrow by the 6 men and women representing the Apple Isle tomorrow on home soil at the South Burnie Bowls Club.
A special, secret part of the evening was the introduction of the new ‘Milestone Caps’. Each Tasmanian representative from here on will presented with a special milestone cap with embroidery on the side to mark how many milestone games they have played for Tasmania. 50+ games, 100+ games etc will be honoured by Bowls Tasmania to their representatives as a reward and recognition of their dedication to the sport and their representation of our State at an Open level of competition.
