Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club ready for new season

Busy year ahead; semi-annual meeting goes Saturday, April 4

The Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club is gearing up for yet another stellar season.

President Frank Lo, vice-president Dean Penny, past-president April Gilchrist, secretary Carolle Allan, treasurer Myrna Viers, games chair Peter Harding and greens manager Archie Harris have events in order to start in April.

Thanks to the fine weather we have been blessed with, some of the members have been out to roll some bowls early in March, but April will really see the action, starting Saturday, April 4 with the semi-annual meeting at 3:30 p.m.

For the public and potential members,  there will be a demonstration in the Driftwood Mall on April 17 and April 24 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

There will be an open house at the clubhouse Saturday, April 18 from 2-4 p.m. and also on Wednesday, April 22  to Friday, April 24 from 6-8 p.m. with newcomers’ coaching available.

Opening day will be Sunday, April 19 at 1 p.m.

The CLBC welcomes junior bowlers, providing a special membership rate for 10-18 years reinforcing the “Sport for Life” concept.

Work on the extension to the clubhouse is progressing and should be functional in time for the Anderton Nursery Mixed Triples on the May long weekend.

We will also host the President’s Cup Zone tournament in May when the executive members of the other clubs in the North Island/Powell River zone get together.
