Lawn Cutting

We are looking for 3 or more helpers on Thursday, April 4, 2024 to cut the grass around the green and do some tidy up in the gardens. Start time will be 8:30 am. If it is raining, we will postpone this. If you can help, please contact Andrew Adamson.


Closure of the Kitchen

Please be advised that effective today, the kitchen is closed (except for the dishwasher for the use of the bar). We are currently seeking a Social Director to take over the running of our kitchen. At the SAGM the Board will be looking for a volunteer to step up as Social Director. The Board and Club Members would like to thank Vicki and Mick for all their contributions to our Club.

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

Should be bagged and left by the library. Fiction, non fiction, hard and soft cover are all welcome. 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limited table space please, NO travel guides, magazines, textbooks, foreign language, Readers’ Digest, encyclopedias or outdated reference books, such as old travel guides, medical books etc.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.

Suggestions for fees on Club bowl rentals

The Board is requesting membership suggestions regarding fees on club bowl rentals for the upcoming season.

Specifically, the Board would like to have comments on the following:

1) should there be a charge for bowl rental?

2) if we charge a rental fee, what should it be per visit?

3) should members from other clubs be charged for bowl rental?

Please respond to

Thank you, Don.
