April 22nd: we had our first Open House of the Season and it was very successful. Even with the threat of rain and the cool weather we had 20 prospective members who showed up to try Lawn Bowling.
Once again the best method of attracting new members is through our current members with 11 of the 20 people being brought or referred by them. The good news is that 5 signed up yesterday and many others have shown a very keen interest which we will be following up with.
I would like to thank everyone who came out to help, either by coaching, rolling bowls back, signing up members, working in the kitchen, setting up and taking down the rinks / flags, bringing up bowls, etc.
So we would ask when you see any of these new members please introduce yourself and welcome them to Mann Park. We also ask that you be patient with them on the greens as each and everyone of us was new to Lawn Bowling at one point.
Our next Open Houses are on Saturday May 6 and June 3 so speak to your friends, neighbours, etc and bring them out to try Lawn Bowling.
