Greens closing October 13, 2020

The last day of bowling for the season will be Monday, October 12, 2020. 

We have certainly had a memorable summer: the COVID pandemic, construction on our perimeter, and poor air quality due to smoke from the fires south of the border.  Despite everything, 72 members took the opportunity to enjoy lawn bowling within the protocols established by public health and Bowls BC.

On behalf of all our members, the Board of Directors extends their wholehearted appreciation to the Games Committee for a job well done. Thanks to the dedication of Ed Hooper, Dianne Brynjolfson, and Gaston Essiambre our greens have been open for play since June 15.  The committee wrote comprehensive return-to-play guidelines (with input from Franco Canil, Dave Edwards, and Ken Cronin), created an online registration process (with the help of Gaston’s son), and oversaw the daily implementation of safety protocols on the greens.  Thank-you for the many hours you have volunteered to permit our members to continue to safely enjoy lawn bowling at Mann Park throughout the summer.

Thank-you, too, to those bowlers who took on the task of coordinator to open and close the club, as well as sanitize the equipment and surroundings for each draw.  “Volunteers make it happen!”

Have a safe winter.  We look forward to getting together soon when COVID restrictions allow.

On behalf of the members,

David Tones,
