Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club holding open houses

Everyone welcome to give the game a try on April 16 and April 19

The Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club is trying a different approach for new members this year.

For those who have never bowled and would like to try the game,  there will be open house on April 16 and 19 from  11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.  If you have concerns about back or knee problems,  we have a tool, a UBI launcher.  This item allows the bowler to remain upright while delivering the bowl.

Could be worth a try to be out in the sunshine, enjoying good company and a great game.

If you are interested in further knowledge of the game,  the coaching sessions start on April 21 and are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday April 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30 and May 5 and 6.

The actual games playing starts on May 7 with the Mixed Triples league.  For further information call Jackie West  250-338-4289 or leave a message at the clubhouse 250-338-8222.

There are several versions of the game: singles and doubles (four bowls delivered by each player); triples (three bowls by each of three players) and fours (similar to curling and each of four players delivers two bowls each).

We also have these categories in men’s, ladies and mixed formats.  Lots of variety there but also we have a variety of levels of competitiveness, from home green pickup games, club tournaments, league games,  zone club  tournaments, provincial events and national events (also Senior Game has a lawn bowling category).

Further activities in April include the semi-annual general meeting at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 13.  Brunch at 11 a.m.  and bowling to follow, weather permitting.  Opening Day with the flag raising and the march around the green with bowling to follow is Sunday, April 20,  1 p.m.

There will be some work parties organized as well to get things all spruced up for a season busy with hosting events.  More about that in May.
