Welcome to the 2023 season.
This promises to be an exciting and busy year for us. We have received a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation that will allow the installation of a new green lighting system that will allow members and guests to play in the evenings when temperatures are lower. The installation of this system is being carried out by licensed contractors and is expected to start in May. The grant will also allow us to purchase supplies necessary to replace our aging ditch and board system. This work will be done in house and anyone who is able is asked to volunteer to help. There will be many small and non-arduous tasks involved in this installation. This work is also expected to start in May.
In terms of notable events, we will be hosting the Pairs and Women’s Pairs District 16 Playdowns for Novices (3 year) in August.
The club welcomes visitors and new members.
Lawn bowling has been played, in one form or another, for thousands of years, combining strategy ,competition, sociability,and affordability, but mainly, a whole lot of fun. The bowls are biased, so they do not roll in a straight line, but in a curve. This makes the skill of bowling more challenging, as it relies on bowlers judging the distance, weight and aim. The objective of the game is to roll the bowls so that they stop as close as possible to a smaller ball called a “jack”. It’s a simple game to learn–and one that takes a many years to master.
