- West Point Grey LBC: Frank Kaweski, Elaine Rolston, Shirley Hurl
- North Vancouver LBC: Bob Martin, Mike Kelly, Barbara Van Gruen
We had perfect weather for these games!
Although our Opening Day was a “wee bit wet” for bowling on soft greens, WPG members weren’t deterred — well…not much!
A few loyal souls left the rest of group (which was socializing in the clubhouse) to see the first bowl of the season (an excellent shot, btw) delivered by coach Ken Sherlock. They then scuttled back to shelter, anticipating much better weather for Sunday’s Open House!
We had our Spring Potluck on 18 Mar 2017. It was attended by 40 people. We all had a good time–and ate lots of good food.
We are now all mentally ready for the new season.
We held our annual Christmas lunch on 3 Dec 2016. This time we were joined by members from the Kerrisdale Lawn Bowling Club, making the lunch even more fun than usual. As usual, we were served excellent food at the University Golf Club.
At the event, Dick Grady was awarded a lifetime membership in the club:

The West Point Grey Lawn Bowling Club participated in the Point Grey Fiesta Parade on Sat 18 June 2016. The weather was quite inclement, but we had a good turnout nevertheless. Unfortunately, though, the bowling events afterwards had to be cancelled due to the rain.
BuildDirect, the world’s largest online marketplace for home improvement products, brought 78 of their staff to our club for an afternoon of bowling and general enjoyment. Using 12 rinks, teams rotated playing 4-end games against each other. A prize was handed out at the end. The players (and our volunteers) made this a very successful event.
Our preseason lessons are underway (Mon, Wed, & Fri (i.e., Apr 18, 20, 22, 25, 27, 29) at 1:30-3:30 pm). We have had a good turnout. The new players (and coaches) are having a great time.
