On 26 October I will be once again holding the Craig Kelly bowls open day, along with my friends, at Picnic Point Bowling and Social Club. The open day will jam-packed full of family fun and everyone is invited, including you, Mr Deputy Speaker Scott. The Craig Kelly open day will take place at the Picnic Point bowling club, 124 Lambeth Street, Panania. We will kick off at 10 o'clock and go until late.

On the day we will have barefoot bowling, live music, market stalls, a display of historic police vehicles, a jumping castle for kids, face-painting and balloon twisting. The barbecue will be fired up all day. I will also be participating in an exhibition match in which I will take on, head-to-head, a legend of the game: Australian hall-of-famer, former world No. 1 and current Australian coach, Steve Glasson OAM. Although I may be very long odds, you never know which way the bowl may turn.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the president, Ian Geldard, and the rest of his team at the bowling club for their hard work in running this local treasure of our community, as well as for their help in once again putting on this open day. While I am at it, I would also like to thank Steve Glasson for lending his support to this event. I hope he won't be too disappointed if I actually give him a hiding.

I invite all local residents to come down and have a roll. There will be something for everyone. It promises to be a great family day out and I look forward to seeing members of my local community there.
