I hope this e mail finds everyone well and that you are all looking forward to a new season on the Greens, hopefully we can get back to some normality this year and that the worst of Covid is behind us.
It’s only 70 more sleeps to Opening Day on April 30th followed by our SAGM and as a warmup we have our Open House dates scheduled for April 16th, 17th, 23rd & 24th from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm where you can bring your friends, neighbours, or other family members to try out the sport, we will also be looking for some Members to help on these days to assist the Coaches.
It’s going to be a busy and exciting 2022 for Lawn Bowling in Victoria as we have National and Provincial Tournaments happening with Victoria LBC hosting the Canadian Senior Triples Championships from Sept 21st thru 25th and your own JDFLBC hosting the Provincial Pairs on July 15th thru 17th and probably the Mixed Pairs August 19th thru 21st.
In addition you are probably already aware that the Greater Victoria Area is the host of the 2022 55+ BC Games (Senior Games) to be held from September 13th thru 17th, link as follows https://55plusbcgames.org/
Westshore Parks & Recreation are going to be one of the central hubs for the Games and as a result the Lawn Bowling will also be taking place on the greens at JDF with Men’s & Women’s Pairs, Mixed Pairs and Mixed Fours in two age categories competing
I will be forwarding you further info shortly for those who may wish to participate in the 55+ Games however there will be Zone play downs first to decide who represents Victoria Zone 1.
