Player Profile: Keith Heritage

Keith Heritage portrait photo
Keith has been a member of Edwardstown Bowling Club for 21 years. He has been President of the Club twice. He has been a true gentleman of the game and has been a staunch supporter of our Club. He has volunteered in many positions over the years, e.g. helping behind the Bar, Umpire of the Day, sandwich making, you name it Keith has done it.

Keith started work at aged 14 as an Apprentice Carpenter and Joiner with Hansen and Yuncken (Master Builders) from 1951 – 1961. He also worked at ARC Engineering for 38 years. He retired in 1998.

He had 3 sons named Craig, Andrew and Scott. When he met and married Val his family of 3 became a family of 8, hence the Heritage Bunch.

I would like to mention that Keith was recently nominated for Citizen of the Year for his 50 years of service to Gymnastics, which is a real honour. Keith has just retired from this position, which he has thoroughly enjoyed over the years, seeing his young protégées develop into star performers.

Keith has coached over 15,000 children during this time. He also coached his three sons as well. Well done Keith, we are very proud of your achievement.

Keith’s other hobbies over his tender years has included Tennis, Running with the Adelaide Harriers and also his interest in Miniature Railway. He also volunteers for Marion Council removing Graffiti.

Keith is still bowling, comes out to training every week and is still performing at a very good level. On his day, he is very hard to beat as a lead bowler.

Keith epitomises what a true and loyal club member is. His contribution to Sport (Gymnastics) and the Edwardstown Bowling Club over the years is a true testament to the man he is.

Thank you Keith.

Joke Corner

A man bought a horse from a farmer for $250. The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day. The next day, the farmer drove up to the man’s house and said “Sorry, son, but I have some bad news. The horse died.”

The man replied: “Well, then just give me back my money.”

The farmer said: “Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.”

The man said “Okay, then just bring me the dead horse.” The farmer asked: “What are you going to do with him?”

The man said: “I`m going to raffle him off.” The farmer said: “You can’t raffle off a dead horse!” Donald said: “Sure I can! Watch me.”

A month later, the farmer met up with the man and asked: “What happened with that dead horse?” The man said: “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at five dollars apiece and made a profit of $2,495.”

The farmer said: “Didn`t anyone complain?” The man said: “Just the guy who won. So I gave him back his five dollars.”
