No regular bowling August 26 Monday Aggregate rescheduled

On MONDAY AUGUST 26, 2019 there will be NO REGULAR BOWLING.  Work is being done on the parking area and the Parking Lot has to be closed in order for the work to be completed.

If anyone still wishes to be at the Club on the 26th, and the spots along High Street aren’t available,  members may park in the metered stalls on North Bluff Road. Members should place their “Mann Park Parking Pass”  on their dash. The City will not be enforcing payment at those stalls at that time.

Because the Monday aggregate’s last game was scheduled for the 26th, it will be played on Wed August 28th instead at the regular afternoon draw.  That afternoon draw game will cost $1 for everyone who bowls.

BC Day fun


On August 5, 54 lawn bowlers celebrated BC Day at Mann Park with a blistering afternoon on the greens. Thank you to our event sponsor, CIBC Ocean Park for helping make the day enjoyable for everyone. CIBC is a new sponsor for Mann Park Lawn Bowling Club.

As always at Mann Park, Volunteers Make It Happen! A great crew of members gave of their time to make BC Day another fun time for all the members who attended. Ken Cronin, games coordinator, had help from Tony Numans, Ed Hooper, Craig Carlyle, Alba Boris, and Sandra Burnett. Bowlers played two games with a refreshing ice cream break between. In-the-River game required the jack to be skillfully advanced into “the river” in order to score. In the second game players rotated after every two ends giving each player on the team a turn at every position. Leads skipping? Great fun!

Tsawwassen visitation to Mann Park

On Sunday, we welcomed 14 lawn bowlers from Tsawwassen for our first visitation of the season. The clouds parted for awhile and we enjoyed some sunny White Rock weather on the greens. Thanks to Ed Hooper for coordinating the games. A great time was had by all.

Martha McArthur and her team served a delicious high tea that was enjoyed between games. Pat Macdonald baked scrumptious scones and Martha’s lemon tarts were a real hit. Bowlers enjoyed the sandwiches saying they were a welcome change from having just a sweet.

Thanks to everyone who helped make our day a success: Jim Carter, Franco Canil, David Drayson for set up; Pat Macdonald, Sharron Lyons, and Martha McArthur in the kitchen and Heidi Hendess for clean-up. Hilary Callihoo, Sharon Avery, and Barb McLeod were our 50/50 ladies. And, of course, Ed Hooper our games coordinator.
