Each year the Pink ribbon Bowling Challenge is held at Tweed Ten Pin. Organised by Professionals Real Estate Coolangatta & Banora Point, the annual event raises money for breast cancer.
This year, two Oculus teams competed against twelve other local businesses, to claim the “Booby Prize”.
The Oculus, “Gun team”, lead by Jenny Dallinger took home the “Booby Prize”, winning the night by a meager 20 pins.
Not to be out done, the team of leftover players, aptly named the “duds” lead by David de Closey claimed third place. A very respectable result considering their bowling skills.
The Pink Ribbon Bowling Challenge is always a fun night for a great cause.

The Business Ladies completed their interclub matchplay at Parkwood over the weekend. Coolangatta Tweed went into the final round trailing by only half a point from Helensvale,and lying equal second with Southport.
The ladies played against Beaudesert and with two matches won, and two matches lost, it was up to the final match as a decider.Oculus director, Jenny Dallinger fought valiantly, playing great golf, and took the match to the 18th hole. Unfortunately, she had to give a shot to her opponent on the final hole and was unable to get the win needed to take out the series.
Southport came out the winners overall. Congratulations to all the players for a good effort throughout the series.

Well at least that’s what it looked like as the Oculus team boarded the Big Red London Bus to cruise the streets of the Gold Coast. The team quickly slipped into party mode while waving to passing onlookers. The bus ride allowed for plenty of time to sip champagne and enjoy a Thai entree, before arriving at our secret destination…..
After much speculation the bus finally stopped at the Elephant Rock Cafe, Currumbin. The excitement continued to grow as the red carpet was rolled out and we strutted our ‘Hollywood’ stuff into the restaurant to attend the official ‘Oculus Academy awards’.
On arrival we were greeted with a delicious cocktail before participating in some ‘Hollywood Trivia’. Congratulations to Bec for taking home the trivia prize. Who knew she watched so many movies!
Following our indulgent lunch came the moment we had all been waiting for… the ‘Oculus Academy Awards’. The presentation had everyone in stiches as they eagerly awaited their well deserved Oscar.
The winners went to:
The Hoff – BJ Newie
The Big Kuhuna – David de Closey
The Seinfield award – Phil Thomson
Best dressed – Cass Herps, for her classic and stylish ‘Audrey Hepburn’ outfit.
Before leaving the party, we were each given presents from Santa. A great end to a great day!
Thank you Team Oculus!
