Founders Women’s and Men’s Pairs
Once upon a time in the kitchen of a small modest home in Sidney a group of six citizens from varying backgrounds and job experiences joined hands and minds to one objective - create from nothing a bowling green in Sidney. In mere months the idea blossomed into a plan with real potential and thus through hard and determined work, it came to pass that the Sidney Lawn Bowling was transformed from an idea into a reality. The original six; The Founders, stand recognized by plaques displayed in both the trophy room and the assembly room and annually are paid homage by two annual club tournaments, the Women's Founders and the Men’s Founders. Both are pairs competitions conducted separately on separate dates.

One of our early members and past president of the club, the very dignified and classy lady of Scottish persuasion (see her photograph in the past presidents' gallery) Nancy Williamson introduced this tournament to honour the memory of her husband Andrew a fellow Scot and proud member of the clan Gunn. The clan has an extensive and rich history with members spread out to many parts of the world from its centre in the northern Highlands of Scotland. Its moto translates to "You're either with us or against us". No grey area with these lads. The tournament continues annually usually accompanied by a dinner.
