Frank Kaweski presented a short talk to over 20 members, covering the most pertinent aspects of Lawn Bowling Etiquette. Here are the main points:
- After greeting, there should be a coin flip (not a ‘kick of the bowl’!)
- Participants need to take out their assigned equipment
- The mat should be 1 metre past the bowls – move the mat rather than the bowls!
- Pay attention, and be ready to bowl
- Encourage others
- Walk up the centre of the green, and around the Head to the back
- Do not linger around the Head
- Rakes need to be placed so they’re ready top be lifted and carried out (don’t encroach onto neighbouring rinks!)
- When measuring both parties need to agree the result
- Stand still behind the Head
- Please be on time!
The Westside Women’s League has now completed. Congratulations to our own Heather Kerr, Sue Dix-Cooper, and Mona Kriss on taking First Place!
A beautiful sunny day heralded our Canada Day Celebrations. Frank Kaweski ably hoisted the flag on our pole. This flagpole originally came from Expo ’86 and the Plaza of Nations. After singing O Canada many members then competed in the Canada Cup, and there was also an Open Draw available for others. Special thanks to Kathie Draeseke for being the Canada Cup convenor, and thanks also to Jan Miko for organising refreshments, as well as Team Spirit cheers/poems!
This year we had 8 teams compete in the Canada Cup. Here are the final results:
It was a good weather day for the first in-club event this season. As it counts towards Bowler of the Year the winners this day are already advancing their points score!
Here are the results:
Refreshments, competitions and bowling on a beautiful May evening.Over 25 people celebrated National Bowls Day, many responding after a personal invitation at The Kitsilano Farmers’ Market. New bowlers enjoyed trying lawnbowling with coaching from club members, and had some wonderful shots. All ages were represented. Many thanks to Suzette and Wayne for a successful event!
Kitsilano Farmers’ Market is a new publicity venue for our club. This was was a venture for us to gauge interest for new members. The market was busy and bustling, and certainly there were a number of people wanting to find out more information about our club. Indeed, a couple even visited the clubhouse in the afternoon as a result of personal invitation, and they’re planning to attend the National Bowls Day Social next Saturday evening!
