November, November.

We are already feeling the summer heat as we move into the last month of Spring! Luckily, we have invested in some more shading in the form of cantilever umbrellas to protect your skin and of course, keep your beverages cool.

Big news on the sutainability front: We have made the finals of the Green Globes in the Lifetime Achievement Category - This award recognises organisations that demonstrate a minimum of 10 years sustained environmental achievement and successful project outcomes between 2009 and 2019. Check us and the other contendors out Here.

Thanks to all who came and made our Country Fair day last weekend a fun success! We hope you got to pat baby animals, try country beers in barrels and have a hoedown. Thanks to all our volunteers and Clare from Cornersmith who ran the pickling competition. We raised some money for NSW Rural Fire Service via our plant stall and will donating some of the hay bales to a friendly cow in need.

We made a beer, let’s celebrate! - Sun 10th Nov

We brewed a beer with Batch Brewing Co! To celebrate and launch the beer we are having a cricket game on the top green and pouring delicious Batch beers from an outdoor bar.
We grew some lemon verbena in the PBC garden and then added it to Batches Saison recipe so this beer is sure to be a summer time favourite!
We'll be giving away prizes for classic catches (whilst holding a beer) and other cricket and beer related things once i think of them - your ideas considered.

PBC's 2019 AGM - Sunday 17th Nov 3pm

The annual report is prepared and presented by the one and only Presiedent George Catsi and the audit and financial report is given by esteemed board Treasurer Jason Harty. Come and see how we are tracking and what the future holds.

This is a great way to meet the board members and other volunteers of the club and to register your interest in future projects. So come, have a beer and enjoy the club.

Gods Cowboys are Slouching Towards Bethlehem - Xmas show

2 shows only: Sat Nov 30th and Sat Dec 7th

It’s Christmas and Gods Cowboys are holding a Surprise Party for Jesus.

Gods Cowboys are back in their new show after their triumphant sold out reunion shows in February. A comedic and musical tour-de-force that formed it's own genre Cowbaret.

Tickets now on sale here

With Christmas almost upon us we’re reminded there’s something about Mary, and definitely something about her wonderkid, Jesus. When you’re born in a barn with the world’s most famous donor Dad, you’re gold star hipster. I mean Jesus had followers BEFORE Insta.

Join the Cowboys when they saddle up riding rough shod over the rocky religious terrain and shiny corporate bauble that is Christmas - Holy Cowbaret ...this is genre diverse...and not everybody’s gonna like it! Like our Father of Christmas Island, our tenacious PM...

‘I haven’t seen these boys but if it’s religious, I back it’, Sco Mo.

But others, (the truly liberal) have a different take on the three horsemen of the Chris-pocalypse. When they galloped out of the dust earlier this year it was hailed as something of a resurrection. Although it took a little more than 3 days for their rock to roll back. In fact it had been 23 years since the three comedy evangelists roamed the comedy plains of Australia. After watching seminal Aussie trios like DAAS reform they had an epiphany: ‘ ‘threesomes are back!’ Not ones to miss out on the fun God’s Cowboys are back for the rapture.

Carol Wimmer from Sydney Art’s Guide was definitely part of the recaptured herd:

“Gods Cowboys have arisen! And what a resurrection...their brand of wicked parody and caustic satire is even more ‘now’ than it may have been ‘then’.. 25th February 2019

*Claus: Due to the modern construct of comparative mythology any divine promises are relative and therefore, may not be binding.

Gods Cowboys are our very own PBC President George Catsi, David Delves and John Knowles

Sorry folks, we are not holding our annual Sculptures by the PBC this year. We are endeavouring to make it bigger and better in 2020 so stay tuned!

If you haven’t sat solar side at sunset, you haven’t lived!
Thanks to the Inner West Stronger Communities Grant we have some solar lights to provide safety and comfort as you sit outside and enjoy your time at the PBC.

PBC Merch!

A new bunch of merch has just come in! Come and grab a T-shirt or hat for yourself or a friend as a nice Xmas present! 

There are limited kids sizes so best to come in and check them out at the club/ try them on.

Rainbow designed by Cody Shapiro and Pirate flag designed by Bruce Collier.

Christmas is coming! Book now!

You may look at this and think it’s a little premature but Christmas is literally just around the calendar!  We are already taking bookings and there is a limited amount of space for functions so better to get in sooner rather than later! Email us with your enquiry now at events@thepbc.org.au

Kids @ the PBC

Hi parents, whilst we do enjoy you bringing your children to the PBC so they can run around and you can relax, we do have some rules.

The main one is that you, the parent or guardian need to be with your child at all times. You are responsible for them and their behaviour.

We allow children to run around on the top green but NOT the bottom green. The bottom green is for adults who want to bowl. Please respect this and we will all live happily ever after.

Inner West Tool Library @ The Bowlo!

Recently the IWTL was highly commended for Community Spirit and Inclusion at the Keep Australia Beautiful NSW awards! Great work team!

Open Saturdays from 9am-12pm but you can browse the catalogue online HERE – don’t forget to become a member!
