Garage Sale

Thank you to those of you who helped out in some capacity. A special shout out to Lynne Hutchinson. We couldn’t have done it without you! I often went to the club and found Lynne busy pricing items all by herself. Lynne, it did not go unnoticed. Since Qualicum had their garage sale on the same day it was decided that we would promote each others event. That had a positive impact on our sales. We are still reviewing the contribution that having the container on site to our bottom line. Since the kitchen is closed until further notice maybe filling it up with garage sale items would be a good interim use. We thus avoid the container cost. Our minds are now busy exploring avenues to increase the number and value of the merchandise we are able to offer. Our numbers are down slightly from the previous couple of years but still respectable. As always, any and all input is greatly appreciated.

Baking

Thank you very much, Sandi Mitchell

Volunteers needed this week!

We need volunteers to assemble the benches this Tuesday starting at 9:00 am. The work involves bending over and lying down underneath the benches. Please bring a screw gun (aka drill with Robertson #2 bit). The more the merrier!
Thanks!

Tarmac Upgrade

Here are some tantalizing photos of the tarmac upgrade.  Visit the club to see the real thing as well as the bowl shed upgrade, the magical improvement to the bowling green after a cruel winter and the initial steps to the benches and landscaping.

Short Mat End of Season Tournament

The Annual Short Mat Tournament was held on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March.

There were eight mixed triples teams entered, made into two groups, playing three games over the two days.

The winners of each group played in a very close final on Sunday afternoon.

The winning team was: Dana Atchison (Skip), Dianne Proctor (3rd) and Lynn Hutchinson (Lead).

The runner up was: Marg Wood (Skip), Diana Olenick (3rd), Martin Perrin (Lead)

It was a fun couple of days which brought out the best in all the bowlers.

To finish off the day and the end of the Short Mat season we held a Pizza Party for all the Short Matters.

Lawn Bowling Fitness Video

The following is a link to some exercises that you may want to check out before the start of our bowling season. There are no instructions, just a video. They were developed by a fitness instructor and a lawn bowler. As with all exercises only do what your body allows you to.

Donations for the Garage Sale

We’re going to try something different this year for the garage sale. Instead of a 6 day window to bring your donations to the club We have arranged to have a storage container  brought to the club as of Wednesday March 20th. This will allow you to, hopefully, make a few extra trips with extra goodies.

Instead of having specific times for the container to be open we will open it when you want us to. We just ask that you give us a little lead time to make arrangements. Please contact me when you like to gain access to the container.

Book donations for the Garage Sale

However, as there is limited table space please, NO travel guides, magazines, textbooks, foreign language, Readers’ Digest, encyclopedias or outdated reference books, such as old travel guides, medical books etc.  Any questions please contact Debbie Lawrence. Thanks everyone.
