    Don't worry, a lot of us don't know how to play bowls and will be learning on the day. We will split up the groups into those who are playing just for fun and those who take competition a bit more seriously. 

    The afternoon will kick off with a BBQ lunch at noon, followed by bowls!

    Harbour City Bears are proud to present Press Paws!

    Join Gayme Master Daniel for a night of fun with a selection of games on Nintendo Switch, come flex your skills or just play for fun!

    Upstairs at Ginger's, in The Oxford Hotel.

    At the start of each night, 2 games will be randomly selected for play! Players will be randomised for each round and each game will have a separate final for the top players of each game!

    Prizes are $50 for 1st and $25 for 2nd in each game. (JB Hifi Vouchers)

    Each player can only win 1 voucher, so if you are lucky enough to be in the top twice, your prize will go to the next player in the match instead. Upon arrival and each time you receive a place in any match you receive a ticket which can win you bar tabs or additional JB Hi-Fi vouchers, so even if you don't take out the top, you still have a chance to win!

    After the comp there's free play Smash Bros or Mario Kart until the end of the night!
