Extract from the Handbook of the sixth Australian Bowling Carnival, 22 Dec 1927 to 7 January 1928, compiled by John P Monro BA, and published by the Victorian Bowling Association. Reprinted by permission. This account is the primary source for more recent historical accounts.
.....Strange to say, this old club, during its long life, has rarely been very prominent in the classic events of the bowling world. In 1901 F Ellis was fourth in the MCC single handed championship of Australia, and in 1926 S Pickett was third at the fifth AB Carnival, held at Sydney under the auspices of the ABC. In 1886 R Bowman was runner up for the VBA single handed championship. In 1926 TH Taylor was second in the Champion of Champions. The first VBA pairs championship was won in 1926 by G Marsdon and A F le Couillard, of St Kilda. The Club's team won the annual trophy in 1879, and was runner up in 1877 and 1886. Its first champion was Henry Tullett, and the present one is G W Clauscen. Councilor Baron Marks is President (for the fifth year), and Arthur J Wells is Secretary.
The St Kilda green consists of 8 rinks, and the playing sward is of the best. It has been the source of many important fixtures. The length of the green was reduced from 150 ft to 120 ft in 1925, after many years of resistance, to the standard length. The club premises were extended in 1926, and they are now very commodious and complete in all arrangements. The green has the electric light installed...."
