KUWEAN? - What is a “KUWEAN”?

Members of PROBUS clubs are generally known as PROBIANS

Taking the first two letters of “Ku-Ring-Gai” and “West” gives “KuWe” the name we have given to our newsletter*

And it is always written KuWe! - note the capitals and the “!”

"KuWe!" is a homophone of "Cooee" the Aussie clarion call to assemble, to meet..

Thus KuWe! is symbolic of the core aim of our Probus Club - to meet for fun and fellowship

So in the Ku-Ring-Gai West Probus club we refer to ourselves as Kuweans.

AND "Kuwean" is used throughout this web site

(sort of makes sense if you don't think too hard on it:-)

But KUWEANS can also refer to themselves as PROBIANS because KUWEANS are not big on "SHOULDING".

Who can become Kuweans  and where do Kuweans meet? 

Kuweans are retired and semi-retired men and women who reside in the KU-RING-GAI areas. 


The Club meets at 10am on the Second Friday of each month at the

Killara Bowling Club

An application to become a Kuwean requires the signatures of 2 members.

One way of getting to know members is to be a visitor at one of our monthly meetings
