What’s Happening

Week of September 18th – 24, 2023

September 22, 2023

Parksville Lawn Bowling Club

The Greens are now closed.

Despite the weather, the Greens are closed for maintenance, spraying of chemicals, or other work for testing of machines such as the slit seeder. If the aerator or sander need adjustments, they can be worked on when the weather permits.

Monday October 2, is reserved for Aeration and sanding.  The volunteers for sanding should not arrive until 9:00 or later. It is a safety concern to allow Mick and Brian to use the Aerator without volunteers in the green.

We do not intend to work on Tuesday October 3.  Any testing of the slit seeder will be done before Monday Oct 2, weather permitting.

Introduction to Short Mat Meeting – Friday, September 29, 2023 @ 1:00 pm

For those members who are wondering what short mat is all about, now is your opportunity to find out.

We meet Tuesdays , Fridays and Sundays at 1:00 PM. No ongoing commitment required. The fee for each session is $3.00. We also contribute 25 cents a session which allows us to hold a get together at the end of the season. Last year it was a pizza party.

For the Information Meeting, the mats will be setup so we can explain what the various areas on the mats are, a few of the basic rules, suggested stance and delivery styles.

You will have the opportunity to deliver some bowls if you so desire.

Please wash your bowls before coming to remove any chemicals from them that they may have picked up from the green. Don’t put any polish or wax on them as that will absorb into the mats.

If you will be using Club bowls please arrive a little early so you can wash and dry them before we begin.

We hope to see you all then!

The Grounds Committee has made the decision to put the greens to bed on Monday, October 2nd  2023 instead of the original dates of September 25th and 26th, 2023. Aeration will begin at 9:00 a.m.
