The Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club is gearing up for another busy year…our 75th (I think the book says we started in 1938).

The semi-annual general meeting is Saturday, April 6 at 3 p.m. at the clubhouse. Membership fees have increased this year to $105 and can be paid at this meeting. We will be getting an update on the fundraising for renovation, a good chance to see the new shed for equipment as the first step in those renos. Also if you have been attending or working at the garage sale, you will be right there for the meeting.

Games chair Peter Harding will have sign-up sheets ready for the summer activity schedule and will also take entries for open tournaments ready for submission to the host clubs.

Greens manager Archie Harris is most pleased with the shed construction and the assistance offered to complete the building and move the equipment from the lean-to.

There is still quite a lot to be done before opening day, April 21, so there will be another call for work parties. Thanks to all those who turned out to help and also to the City of Courtenay Building Department (Dave Craven) who gave of their expertise in a variety of areas.

Ways and Means chair Frank Lo is asking that in your spring cleaning process, you see what can be found for the garage sale on Saturday, April 6, 9 a.m. to 12 noon, before the SAGM. The clubhouse will be available for storage from April 4.
