Life Membership honour

Cobar Bowling & Golf Club secretary/manager Brad Beetson congratulated club president Jimmy Goonrey on his Life Membership honour that was bestowed on him at the club’s recent annual general meeting. Jimmy took over the role of club president from Max Humphries in 2006 and has served unopposed in the role ever since. His Life Membership honour recognises Jimmy’s long involvement with the club as
a committee member (on and off for 22 years since 1968), and as an accomplished golfer and bowler. Jimmy’s philosophy as president was that “we need to put the
money into our members and the community”. He estimates in the past 14 years the club has spent nearly $4million on extensions and upgrades. In addition, a large amount has also been donated to local schools, sporting and charity groups.
