Gerard Voogd and Pat Fulham receive their awards from Phil Boyd (centre).

Tatura Bowls Club chairperson Phil Boyd has presented Super Veteran Award badges to club members Gerard Voogd and Pat Fulham.

Both recipients have enjoyed a lengthy period playing lawn bowls.

Fulham was introduced to lawn bowls more than 40 years ago when a worker at the Echuca butter-making factory encouraged him to take up the game.

He has enjoyed the experience at a number of clubs, and is still enjoying pennant play and club events.

He is now using a bowling arm like his fellow recipient Gerard Voogd.

Voogd was encouraged some 30 years ago by fellow worker Gordon Evans from Tatura Milk to have a crack at lawn bowls, and his early experience was in social games with astute bowlers Arthur Knee, Ron Rose and Jim Curtis, all strong supporters of Tatura Bowls Club.

Over the past few years he has taken on a major role within Tatura Bowls Club as organiser of the 60 and Over bowls tournaments held during the bowling season.

Congratulations Pat and Gerard on achieving Super Veteran status.
