Fellow bowlers of Mann Park:
(including our many novices who signed up this past weekend!!)
From Bryant Avery, president
Mann Park’s Official Opening Ceremony will take place Saturday May 2.
We have about eight dignitaries coming as our guests.
Here are the details:
Date: May 2.
Time: Be there before noon. We will have a bag pipe parade around the greens, and the ceremonial rolling of the first bowls of the season by some of our guests.
At about 12:30, there will be a lunch — a healthy, substantial salad.
After brief messages from our dignitaries, or about 12:45-1 p.m., we’ll have a draw to bowl — weather permitting.
(NOVICES; IF YOUR COACHES THINK YOU ARE READY, YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO JOIN THE GAMES.)
Price: $5 for the lunch (but guests and NOVICES do not pay).
TICKETS WILL BE LIMITED; IF YOU WANT TO ATTEND THE LUNCH, CONTACT RENATE STEVENSON asap:
firstname.lastname@example.org or 604 535 9699.
(This includes first year novices who don’t pay but must reserve the space.)
Warning: Do NOT leave this to the last minute. We will cut off the number of members who attend the lunch. It’s first-come, first-serve.
If you want to bowl but do not want to attend the lunch, that’s okay. Arrive around 12:45 and put your name tag on the draw board.
Whites or club colours are preferred but not absolutely required because we have guests and novices.
