On Sat 19 Mar 2016, we held our pre-season pot luck dinner at the Clubhouse. We gorged ourselves on food, and had a great time.
Sun 27 Sep 2015 was an absolutely gorgeous day for our season-closing awards day. Prior to the awards being presented we had a wonderful luncheon arranged by Louise and crew. After everyone had gorged on ham, salads, scalloped potatoes, and gorgeous desserts – all washed down with wine, beer, tea or coffee – a surprising number of members repaired to the greens for a final stellar afternoon of bowling.
On Sun 16 Aug 2015, the Conquest Cycling Club held a fundraising event at our club. About 100 people participated in a fun lawn bowling tournament and other activities to raise funds for the Ride for Cancer. A great time was had by all on a beautiful, sunny day.
On 3 Aug 2015, our B.C. Day holiday bowling, both morning and afternoon, was enjoyed by a good number of bowlers. It was especially gratifying to see so many first year bowlers enter the draws…they have now realized that they are quite good enough to join the games and seemed to really enjoy themselves…we certainly enjoyed having them play.
And the buffet! Louise and her amazing contingent outdid themselves with ham, salads, and sliced meats which were followed by an amazing array of desserts. More power to Louise who had about 20 people sign up in the last few days (some the “day of”!) and still managed to cope, with no one left hungry. (We should try not to pull the “last minute” bit in future; it’s not really fair to the organizers.)
This year’s Canada Day Cup featured some very good competition within the club. In the tournament, convened by Frank Kaweski, each team played 2 games, with lunch & refreshments in between. The winning teams were as follows:
- 1st: Ken Sherlock, Sandra Webster, & June Wing
- 2nd: Frank Kaweski, Joyce Williams, & Brenda Laing
- 3rd: Ralph Roper, Shirley Grimmett, & Cynthia Hou
On 30 Jun 2015, the West Point Grey Ladies’ Pairs saw 12 bowlers bowl off. Winners were:
- 1st: Louise Weinberger & Dorothy Wan
- 2nd: Joyce Williams & Jane Puusepp
The tournament was convened by Verle Kaweski. Refreshments were provided by Bridget Allanson and Louise Weinberger.
On Wednesday 24 June 2015, Frank Kaweski skipped his team (Louise Weinberger, Kathie Draeseke and Cathleen Rowlette) to victory in the 6th Annual President’s Cup! It was a wonderful day and our thanks to Granville Park for hosting us.
The cup is now back where it started!
The West Point Grey Lawn Bowling Club participated in the Point Grey Fiesta Parade on Sat 20 June 2015. The weather was perfect for marching, and many people turned out for the event.
On Sat 6 Jun, 14 teams participated in this annual tournament convened by Frank Kaweski. Each team played 2 games north & south in the morning, and 2 games east & west after lunch. Congratulations to the winners:
- Richmond LBC: Jack Green, Gordon Oikawa, Gonzo Wong
- Richmond LBC: Paul Choi, Stanley Chow, James Chen
- Langley LBC: Doug Dingman, Murray Scott, John Fuller
Refreshments (coffee, tea, goodies) were provided by a WPG team lead by Shirley Grimmet, ably assisted by Jan Miko, Marie Clark, Alice Roper, Cynthia House, and Verle Kaweski.
On Sunday 31 May, WPG undoubtedly broke new ground with Vancouver’s first “Defibrillator Party”!
After our draw, over thirty people watched Cam, the intrepid St. John’s Ambulance professional, demonstrate the steps necessary to use our recently purchased defibrillator in “bringing back” someone who has suffered cardiac arrest.
Many thanks to Brenda Laing, who arranged it all, including the great wine and cheese party which followed.
Hopefully, we will never have to put our new knowledge to the test, but like the Boy Scouts, WE ARE PREPARED!
