A well attended meeting to forma a bowling club was held in the School of Arts, Raymond Terrace, on Tuesday night. A green has been laid down by Mr. H. Sutton on his property in Glenelg Street.

A number of residents have become enamoured with the game, and have been practising most assiduously.

The meeting decided that a club, to be known as the Raymond Terrace Bowling Club be formed.

The secretary of the Hunter River District Bowling Association asked for a ruling in regard to the affiliation of Raymond Terrace club with the Newcastle district association. It was pointed out that clubs must, under the rules, affiliate with the association the headquarters of which are nearest by practicable route to the club desirous of affiliating. East Maitland was approcimately 12 miles from Raymond Terrace and Newcastle 16 miles.

It was stated that the question of access should be taken into consideration and that Raymond Terrace was nearest to a good many clubs in the Newcastle district
