SPRING HAS SPRUNG!
Bowling on our wonderful, soft, smooth, green grass cannot be far behind, eh?
Please mark your calendars with these important dates:
Thursday, April 16, 1:30 p.m.
Semi-Annual General Meeting
You should have received your notification with an agenda several days ago. If not, please contact Jim Previer.
Saturday, April 18, 10-3.
OPEN HOUSE for new bowlers.
BRING SOMEONE ALONG!
There are brochures in a box by the piano in the clubhouse.
This is also REGISTRATION DAY for returning bowlers.
If you can’t make it on the 18th, there are applications on the piano in the clubhouse. Contact Geoff Wells if you have questions.
Wednesday, April 22, about 9 a.m. until the work is done.
Annual Clean-up day to get the club ready for the season.
All hands on deck, please. Pitch in where you can. The basement, main clubhouse room, rest rooms, kitchen, grounds, balcony — even the parking lot — should be ship-shape. Mark Dalton has a list of chores.
Saturday, May 2, noon.
Official Opening Ceremony with dignitaries.
Details about the lunch to follow.
If you are willing to help, contact Renate and Bob Stevenson.
The weather always dictates, of course, but Helen Brinton hopes to begin training this year’s novices on April 27, 28, 29 and May 4, 5, 6. time to be determined
WHEN WILL WE ALL BE ABLE TO BOWL???
Every year, dozens of members ask this question, and every year the answer is the same: “It depends!”
It could be after the official ceremony; it could be before it. It depends.
The greens were cored and sanded last week. The new grass needs to catch. Weather is a crucial factor, of course. We consult professional greenskeeper John Findlay. We are reluctant to get on the greens too early when it is still mushy and easily damaged.
THE MOMENT THE GREENS ARE READY, AN EMAIL WILL GO OUT.
Please be patient.
One further note: This year, instead of one person in charge of the greens, there is a committee of nine hard-working volunteers sharing the many tasks: Paul Brinton, Graham Reynolds, Larry Ridenour, Bill Wallace, Garry Stronach, Gerry Potter, Frank Keay, Arnie Holand and Harold Hendess.
If you’d like to join “The Greens Guys”, contact one of them. And no, it does not need to be an all-guys thing.
