Winter Activities

September 23, 2023

Parksville Lawn Bowling Club

We have a full slate of winter activities planned. Please consider the following for your winter social calendar.

Mahjong is open to club members and the public so please feel free to invite friends and relatives to join us. We will be playing the Chinese version of Mahjong. It is important to realize that this game bears no similarity to the games played on the internet. The season for veteran players will begin on Monday, November 6th at 7:00 p.m. Please arrive a few minutes early.

If you have never played Mahjong before or you would like to refresh your skills, or if you have played the American version and would like to learn the Chinese version, we will be providing 3 weeks of instruction beginning on Monday, October 16th. 

Coordinaor: Murray Sinclair

Tuesday, Friday and Sunday:

Short Mat: Times are 1:00 – 3:00

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

 No ongoing commitment required.  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.

 Coordinator: Garry Steele
