AUSTRALIA’S premier bowls magazine, Queensland Bowler, will have a new look this year.

The magazine will be printed on high-quality gloss paper from cover to cover, making for a more enjoyable product.

It will also feature new columns and articles, while regional reporters scattered throughout the state will keep readers up to date with articles from far-flung corners of Queensland.

The magazine requires more regional reporters, so if you are interested please contact Bowls Queensland on 3355 9988 for more information.
