Thank you to Steve and Jill Foster and all the wonderful volunteers that made the tournament a big success. A full 32 member event in two afternoons. The great kitchen staff headed by Gloria who gave us a wonderful spread of food and refreshments. Thanks to all our great GH volunteers!
Well, because of recent mischief happening at the club, it was decided to remove the thick hedge alongside the parking lot and and the southeast corner. A great group of volunteers from the club completed the work on consecutive Wednesday afternoons until the job was done. A big THANK YOU to all who helped out. What a gargantuan job! The pics give you a chronology of the progress. We have already had some potential new bowlers wander in to get more information after being able to see the action through the fence.
Earlier in the year, Mary Forster’s bowling mates in Ontario invited her to bowl in some Ontario Lawn Bowling Association (OLBA) open tournaments. She bowled at clubs in Stouffville, Cosburn Park, Willowdale and Oakville between August 28 – September 2. The OLBA allows registration as early as January!
Competition was rather intense but all in all, it was a lot of fun. Three 12-end games were played (Ontario draw). It’s interesting to note that reasonable prize money was given to the team that scored a High Last Game. Mary’s team won this category in the Bruton National Bank Fall Classic Triples tournament.
Barking dogs seldom bite, but 2018 seemed like the year of a
biting dog and many are pleased to see it gone!
The night owls of our club were out to send 2018 to the
doghouse and ushered in 2019, the Year of the Boar according to the Chinese
lunar calendar. Everyone who attended brought a platter of goodies and enjoyed a
game or two of carpet bowling.
Here’s to a Happy, Healthy, Peaceful and Successful New Year!
