Patience is a virtue they say, and billiards is a game that requires it, or immense skill and coordination.
Coordination between a Bowling club and an RSA also requires skill and coordination.
A skin of recycled Rimu over a set of rolled forms was intended to assist with the focused nature of the game and enable the hours to simply ‘pass you by’.
Acknowledging the bowling green and the northern sun when the days are short and mean were also part of this slow game.
The ocular to catch the setting sun is as important as are the lights over the tables. Both made by the Architect.
A community club that is dedicated a part of society which is enjoying the setting sun, this small project has its influences entrenched in service men and womans history.
Come make the time to pot the black.
