Naracoorte RSL Bowls Club looking for a new kitchen

The Naracoorte RSL Bowling Club is looking to renovate their kitchen, so that more people can enjoy a hot meal at the clubrooms.

The club is seeking an estimated $20,000 to $30,000 to renovate the kitchen area, and will by applying to the Office for Recreation and Sport for a grant, with the support from the Naracoorte Lucindale Council.

“We want to get it up to standard,” said Vice President of the Naracoorte RSL Bowling Club, Joe McGrath.

“We don’t have that much money as a small club, and we’re hoping to get it renovated so that Night Owl Bowls can start. We can provide snack food, things like that.”

Ideally the new kitchen would also have amenities such as a deep fryer so that proper meals can be served, such as schnitzels and chips. 

A dishwasher, a larger exhaust fan, and a basin for hand washing would also be installed.

The club is already capable of serving large meals, as it served 89 during the recent Supa Series. The clubrooms themselves can sit 100 people.

But with better facilities, more people could use the clubrooms as a place for functions. With the bar and meals being served, there could be everything from birthdays to work parties featuring games of barefoot bowls. 

“The kitchen has served us well, but it’s become very old and tired,” said Naracoorte RSL Bowling Club President Paul Nielson.
