FOR as long as Geoff McRae can remember on the first Tuesday of each year Evans Head Bowling Club has held the Casino-Evans Head Surf Club Charity Bowls.

"We had to hold it on a Wednesday this year as Tuesday was a public holiday," he said.

"I was working here in 1972 as the manager and the charity day was on."

Mr McRae has been at every one of the surf club's charity days with the exception of one when he was in Canada.

He has also been a part of the same bowling team for the past 13 years named Team Butt Butt.

"It's named after one of our team members we call Butt Butt," he laughed.

"We get t-shirts made up each year."

Members and supporters of the Casino-Evans Head Surf Club turned up in good numbers on the second day in January to play bowls.

The charity day raised $2400 and the surf club would like to thank all sponsors particularly Sly Bros, SPAR supermarket and the Evans Head Bowling Club.
