Represented the state at Rachuig in 1968, 1971 and 1976 and also managed the team in 1978. AUSTRALIAN SPORTS MEDAL – Pauline is a recipient of this prestigious award. CITY MASTERS Champion – 1975 STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS 1965 – A Grade Singles 1967 - B Grade All Events 1967 – B Grade Singles 1969 and 1971 – Open Doubles 1971 – A Grade Doubles ADMINISTRATION Pauline was elected to the Board in 1971 and became Secretary in August 1973 until Aug 1981. Pauline was Secretary of the PTBA between the years 1973 and 1981. This was a lot of work because there were no computers then and all correspondence, minutes, membership registers, yearbooks etc had to be done collected and typed manually. When the Rockingham Mandurah Association was formed Pauline was an inaugural part in getting this association up and running for the members she was representing. Pauline was President and held this position for some 17 years. In the early years, Pauline was Western Zone Director and attended Congress (known as TBA now), assisted with the running of the National Championships, Rachuig and President Shield Tournaments. This again was in the days before computers and collating of entries, scoring and results had to be done manually (collected, typed and printed) by a team of volunteers. All service to our sport has been done in a voluntary capacity and Pauline with her extensive knowledge of our sport was always available for guidance and help.
Peter was a Foundation Member of the PTBA which was founded in August 1963. Held the position of Secretary/Treasurer from October 1965 – August 1972 when he was elected President, a position he held until 1976. Assistant Secretary/Treasurer to May Durell in August 1981 and gave us the benefit of his long years of experience at a time when the long serving Line Officers of the PTBA retired. Western Zone Director was another administration position he held, representing WA at the National level and assisting with the National Tournaments. His pride and joy must be the History books he maintained for over 30 years since the sports inception, which gives us the ability to provide the background material required for presentations such as The Hall of Fame. When he was created a Life Member of the Perth Association in 1978 the remark was made that ‘If Peter’s record was the standard required for someone to be made a Life Member, then it would be a long time before there was another one’. Peter continued working unselfishly for the sport, keeping his history books and helping Gwyn Bunting (secretary) keep the year book records up to date. Holder of the prestigious Australian Sports Medal, it should be noted his name was at the top of the list when nominations were asked for this award.

Eileen is an accredited Level 2 Coach and has been coaching at this level for more than 20 years.
Eileen is responsible for many of the fine Junior Bowlers we have had coming through the ranks from the Development Squads when Mirrabooka was open.
Over the years has coached the President Shield Teams in 1980,1981,1982,1983,1984,1985,1986,1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1997.
The Walter de Veer teams 2000, 2001& 2002,
ATBSO 2007, 2015 Teams
The ATBSO Ladies Team achieved a National Victory in Canberra, at the time only the second National Title to be won by a WA Team.
Also coaching the WA Women’s Restricted team and winning in 2011.
Eileen coached Walter DeVeer teams before and during their trip to Melbourne. The captain, during his presentation speech thanked Eileen for her efforts and remarked ‘ she took away boys and brought back men’.
To encourage her juniors, Eileen organised travel groups to the Junior Nationals to experience the competition and friendship with bowlers from other States.
Her outstanding achievement would be in working with the disabled bowlers and taking them to the Oakford Challenge (state Teams). This tournament was run by a different association from TBA and Eileen decided to take her buddies to this tournament and this is how we have state teams travelling to the nationals for persons with a disability, and under the banner of TBA now. This is an extremely demanding job and one that Eileen has carried out for many years. Having recently retired from coaching the Belridge Buddies (disability) giving the baton to Dianne at Joondalup.
Over the years all this work has been done in a voluntary capacity and our young and not so young bowlers are gaining a wealth of knowledge from this lady.
