Well, the weather still wasn’t the best for our two Open Houses (Sunday Apr 21st & Saturday Apr 27th) however we did have a total of 38 visitors pass through and attend over both days. As a result, 15 have booked lessons so far with the potential of another 4 later this month, we already have had 4 convert to full membership this week with hopefully another 4 or 5 next week. At present we are anticipating 10 -12 possibly 15 new Novice members.

We had a very special visit from one of our Founding Members, Sylvia Kelly (103 yrs. young). Sylvia and Georgie (long time member) brought a contingent of prospectus bowlers with them from Trillium House. Everyone had a lovely afternoon out in the sunny weather.

If you missed our Open Houses and are interested in trying this sport please contact Jack Robertson, our Coaching Coordinator. Two of our team of qualified coaches will welcome and assist in teaching you the basics. Please wear flat soled shoes and clothing that is comfortable allowing you to move around easily, we will supply all the bowling equipment you need to get started. We offer 2 one hour lessons for $20.00 and if you decide to join our Club that money will go toward your membership fee.

We are an active Club and throughout the season we have many choices that are sure to keep you busy and having fun…..Leagues, Club Tournaments, BSI (Bowls South Island) Tournaments, Fun Days and drop in bowling every day. We also have Social Members that join us after bowling for the barbeques, celebrations, and fun games.

OPEN HOUSE POSTER SEE YOU ON THE GREENS, EVERYONE IS WELCOME


Our Club has made a commitment to support the youth in our community by introducing them to the sport of Lawn Bowling. For any sport to thrive and flourish you must have an influx of young people.

We have four separate events scheduled and these have been customized to introduce them to the sport and the challenges within it, followed up with a quick game allowing them to put into practice what they are learned.
