AS PART of a Bowls Queensland initiative, Binjour Bowls Club is going to host its own come and try day on October 25 at 6pm.

The club will be promoting awareness for the sport, and hoping to welcome new members to the 70-year-old club.

This month allows local bowls clubs to be a part of the campaign, where Bowls Queensland provides advertising material to use.

Binjour Bowls Club secretary and games director Aileen Wiley is hoping to get people interested this year, ramping up marketing strategies.

"We've done more letterbox drops than last year, and put up flyers around town, as well as additional social media advertising," Mrs Wiley said.

Even though it's a small club, Mrs Wiley said it always enjoys a strong turnout for its Friday night bowls events, as well as frequent competitions.

"We have people coming from Mundubbera, Gayndah, Binjour, and other surrounding areas, all coming for a variety of stuff," she said.

The club's calendar for the rest of the year is looking stacked, with many notable days for competitors or social members to join the action.

"We have Ladies Day coming up, as well as Men's President's Day, and Melbourne Cup just around the corner," Mrs Wiley said.

One of their biggest competitions is the Bonanza Carnival, in which 16 teams from across the area compete for multiple cash prizes.

"We have four rounds, with $1000 each round given away to placing teams," Mrs Wiley said.

"It's a very unique carnival, where teams can win multiple times."

With a variety of competitions on offer throughout the year, Mrs Wiley said bowls is not just for competitive players, but for fun too.

"It's a great night out for the family, and can be enjoyed by everyone," she said.
