The weather was perfect at 23 degrees with a slight breeze🌞 Perfect lawn bowling weather. The next meet and greet is in two weeks on Saturday May 25th.

This weekend, May 18th & 19th, our club is hosting the BSI Galleon Cup Mixed Pairs. Quite a few JDF Teams have entered so come on down and watch some of South Islands finest bowlers competing and cheer on your club.



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.
