VALE Barry Monson

by admin

It is with deep regret that Bowls Tasmania and Bowls North West announces that Barry Monson passed away last Thursday on the North-West Coast.   Barry was 82.

Barry was a member of several bowls’ clubs on the North-West Coast and was very well known in bowls circles.   Barry was a hard-working administrator and served as Secretary of the North-Western Tasmania Bowls Association for many years.   He was a President and a Life Member of the Association.  

Barry was a champion bowler and won many club, regional and state championships over a long period of time.   He played 55 games for Tasmania.   He was a selector for both the North-West and State Open sides and was also a coach of both club and representative sides.

Barry gave outstanding and dedicated service to bowls in Tasmania and in particular on the North-West Coast over many years.

On behalf of President Graham Hay and the Bowls Tasmania Board and President Phil Prouse and the Bowls North West Board we offer our deepest sympathy to the family of Barry.
