Hedge BeGone

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.

 

 

Ontario Bowling

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.

BRAND NEW YEAR

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!

The Ladder To Success

Ten weeks flew by very quickly. The Monday Morning Mixed Pairs Ladder finished this afternoon. The twists and turns had all the elements of a classic Alfred Hitchcock’s film (The 39 Steps). It certainly took a lot more than 39 Steps to get to the top!

Participants have had many ups and downs every step of the way. For some, it felt like one big uphill climb and there were circumstances tripping and pulling us back down the ladder. Certainly, there were those who felt like a step too far and that the ladder wasn’t leaning against the right building!

Everyone’s participation in the past ten weeks is very much appreciated by Janet and David. All in all, they hope everyone had fun. Congratulations to the winners.

Thank you Janet and David from everyone who participated in the Ladder. We all had fun!
