Club holds shot as stalwart honoured

The Oaklands RSL Bowling Club

Each Thursday evening the dining room is open for a la carte dining and is a great time for mixing with friends and catching up on the news, seeing what jobs might be out there, enjoying a nice drink or two, play the pokies and being eligible to win the interclub money prize which goes up each week – but you have to be there!

The club is available for functions and of course, is a bowling club. Come in and have a meal on a Thursday or any night for a cool drink and a chat.Oaklands RSL 150x150
