NEW Condamine Sports Club president Ross Bell won't need to introduce himself around the member clubs - he knows them all.

He has been actively involved as an official, player, parent and supporter with the Warwick Cowboys Rugby League Club, Warwick Netball Association and Warwick Hockey Association.

He also has a keen interest in rugby union and cricket and is involved in the Warwick Golf Club, which in the past three months has leased the golf clubhouse to the Condamine Sports Club to continue to operate as a licensed club.

Mr Bell has been part of the Condamine Sports Club committee since 2003 when he was the netball delegate and later became vice-president.

"The club is in a financially sound position and I want to keep up the good work of retiring president Guy Sugden, a quiet achiever who is planning some travel with his wife Wendy," Mr Bell said.

"Ian Skillen is doing a great job managing the club with excellent support from his staff; I thank everyone for their patronage of the sports club."

Club committee members under Mr Bell are: secretary Gary Russell-Sharam, treasurer Garry Hanson, vice-presidents Wayne Foster and Trevor Aspinall and club representatives Don Browne (Cowboys), Steve McDonald (rugby union),

Linda Bunch (netball), Michael Bourke (cricket) and Peter Pickering (hockey).

Mr Bell said the aim of the club was to be able to support the five-member clubs and the Warwick community.

An active golfer and retired rugby league footballer, Mr Bell operates a family butchery business with his wife Trish. He has been involved in business for more than 30 years.
