Cathy and Bob Selzler help kick off National Donation Day. Aside from Cathy’s all around bowling expertise, she also donated many hours to the club this year as Drawmaster for many of our club. She is a great volunteer! 👏👏👏🙌🙌🙌👍👍👍 ... See MoreSee Less
Cathy is a great lawn bowling partner too.
Two of our club benches have been repurposed for the skaters at the Wildwood Community Association. We donated them to our neighbour after vandals thoughtlessly damaged several this week. 🤗

Thank-you so much for your kindness and generosity! It made me think of a Fred Rogers quote “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”” Thank you, Calgary Lawn Bowling Club for so quickly jumping in to be our helpers!
Our pleasure. Wildwood Community helped us in the past - lending us a snowblower in mid-April a few years ago, when we had knee high snow still. 😂😂😂😂
The benches look nice at Wildwood, it is nice to see that our club is helping out the community 🙂
Thank you so much for caring and sharing. I love our little communities and the awesome kind people who live here.
Thanks for helping out your neighbours!!💖
Fabulous!! So kind of you guys to pay it forward!
Thank you ❤️
In 1940 as the Second World War was going on the Calgary Lawn Bowling Club hosted a “Win the War Jitneys" that aided war efforts by giving away war saving stamps. The club help to aid the government by giving away approximately $260 in war savings certificates and encouraged other lawn bowling clubs in Calgary to do the same and the adopted system assisted by approximately $600 to the war efforts that year.

An informative interview with one of our Club’s most impassioned and goal focused members. A pretty amazing bowler as well! We are lucky to have her energy contribute to our activities. ... See MoreSee Less
awesome. Congrats Kathryn. (:
Last week the club became the beneficiary of a new public artwork project commissioned by the City of Calgary, for the shared use by the Spruce Cliff Community Association, the Bow Cliff Centre 50+ and our club.
The “DayNight-Art” project united multicultural artists in Spruce Cliff community under the creative leadership and talent of two Calgary artists, Oksana Kryzhanivska and Sisay Shimeles.
Oksana brings her sculptural and digital media background to this project, as well as her Ukrainian descent. Likewise, Sisay Shimeles offers his talent as a painter, a graphic designer and a proactive member of Calgary Ethiopian community and teaches the fundamentals of African art techniques and hosts painting and drawing workshops.
The project kicked off with three art workshops offered to the general public and to Calgary Quest School students where Sisay and Oksana taught the cross-cultural and traditional ways of art making, with participants producing paintings that informed the content of the final installations. The art workshops offered opportunities for the residents to learn art techniques of non-Western cultures and have fun.
Thank you, Heather Gibbons of the City of Calgary, for providing this background and coordinating the project. Club member, Trevor Smith, contributed his electrical expertise to help power the new sign. Thank you, Kathryn MacGregor, for the photos. ... See MoreSee Less
Wow - love the sign!
It's amazing Art
Calgary Lawn Bowling Club is feeling sad.
3 months ago
It is with a great deal of sadness that I bring to you the news that Sue Bente passed away on Oct 28th after a battle with cancer.
Lawn bowling was a passion of Sue’s and to her the Calgary Lawn Bowling Club, during our bowling season, was the centre of her social life.
We’ll remember her encouraging words of congratulations on a “good shot” made and her willingness to bowl at any level of play. She will be missed on the green and in the clubhouse.
On behalf of all members of the Calgary Lawn Bowling Club I send our condolences to her family and friends at this time of loss.
Keith Bacon – President Calgary Lawn Bowling Club
Any members wanting to pay their respects can join the Bow Cliff Seniors next Wednesday as they are dedicating their next luncheon in her honour. Anyone wishing to attend need to call BCS to reserve a lunch (403.246.0390) ... See MoreSee Less
She always said nice things to other members. She will be missed in CLBC. RIP.😔
When Pride Lawn Bowling first came to the club back in 2019, Sue was one of the first members to join the league on a regular basis and by doing so help to make our club live up to creating a safe welcoming and inclusive environment for all lawn bowlers. I will truly miss her at our club in 2022. <3
I enjoyed learning to bowl with her. Spent many hours on the greens encouraging her in her game, celebrating her victories. Sue had a very kind soul. Always willing to help. May you rest in peace.
Omg! Thank you for sharing. Sue... always a kind word, A wave from afar walking to club, a congratulatory note of my competition. Watching her grow over the years was amazing, and to have her name on more than 1 trophy! Good on her. I’ll miss Sues comments... Good shot, can I join you,your hair is beautiful. You are so pretty. Well Sue, a beaded gal in orange Never asked for nothing... Thinking you found some comfort in Lawn Bowling RIP
So sorry to hear the news. As a new bowler Sue was always so encouraging and fun to play with. She will be missed. RIP Sue. 🙏
R.I.P. Sue. My condolences to her family and friends. She loved lawn bowling and always lent a helping hand. She will be missed for sure.
So sorry to hear of Sue's passing. She was passionate about bowling and CLBC was a large part of her life. She always had a pleasant, kind word.
Such sad news. Sue loved lawn bowling...she told me it was the only sport she ever was good enough to play. She certainly will be missed. Condolences to Sue's family and friends. 😥
A very kind soul and she loved CLBC as much as anyone could. RIP Sue. Condolences to her friends and family.
So sorry to hear, our condolences to her family and friends. Marylyn and Pete
Deepest sympathy to you Kathy and Calgary bowling club members in the passing of your member Sue. 💐🤗
Very sad to hear this 😢 She always made me smile ❤️😊
Condolences to her family and friends.
Very sad to hear today 😔 God Bless 🙏🏻
Sue always greeted you with a Hello and a smile. To see the joy on Sue's face when she had a great shot was priceless. I know Bow Cliff and Calgary Lawn were two of her favorite places to be. She will be noticeably missed by all. RIP 😢
We had a great time there at Senior Triples in 2016.
you are most welcome Mike. It was a lovely, warm day too. (:
It was a glorious day, beautiful end to the season.

Club members Cheryl and David Storrow were recently treated to the hospitality of the Wanderers Lawn Bowling Club. Visiting Calgary next season? Let us know and we’ll be glad to welcome you! 😀It was nice this past week to have a few visitors at the club bowling with us during one of our morning jitneys. We were happy to welcome Iain and Margaret Campbell from Scotland (Arthurlie Bowling Club) and Dave and Cheryl Storrow from Calgary (Calgary Lawn Bowling Club). The Campbells have often visited some of our fellow Nova Scotian bowls clubs but this is their first time (but not their last!) in bowling at Wanderers. This was the Storrow’s first time at our club as well and they had a great time bowling with us! Thanks for coming and hopefully we’ll see you around the greens again sometime! ... See MoreSee Less
LOL LOL I have never seen this happen in all my 4 years of lawn bowling. Thankfully!!
Wow, that’s something to aspire to!
Peter Mok would surely be our Club’s “Knight of the Green” this season, winning the prestigious 242 League Championship this year. We’ll have to start addressing him as “Sir Peter”. ... See MoreSee Less
Arise Sir Peter … from Wolverhampton.
Congrats Sir Peter. Right on!! (:
Sir Peter, I like that ! 🙂
But again Derek Dillon always called me the King, actually is " Jitney King " Maybe he thinks I only win games in Jitney...LOL🤣🤣🤣
Wow....a knighthood for me? We have to talk about this at the " Round Table "😂😂😂
Way to go, Brenda! That is true dedication. 👏👏👏👍👍👍🙌🙌🙌#ThanksCoach
I would like to nominate Brenda Clark.
McArthur Park Lawn Bowling Club has had it’s ups and downs throughout Covid, as have many other sport organizations. Our club has lost long time members who are not comfortable returning to the Lawn Bowling Game. We have waived fees or have had decreased fees as members can not enjoy the complete lawn bowling experience, which includes a social gathering after our games to enjoy a coffee or tea and Goodies brought by one of the members. Our club is run totally by it’s many volunteers and revenue is generated by member dues.
Brenda Clark, our President, volunteer and coach has dedicated hours towards “Try It” sessions this year and previous years. If someone shows an interest, she books a time on the “green” to give a teaching session on the fundamentals of Lawn Bowling. Individuals can have three Try It sessions before deciding to become a club member.
The result of Brenda’s efforts as a coach has resulted in our club membership growing by several members from pre Covid years, in spite of having fewer returning members. Brenda is also on the board of the Interior Lawn Bowling Association and participates/d in inter club competitions and open houses throughout the Interior.
We appreciate the effort put forth by Brenda Clark and hope our new members continue to enjoy the game of lawn bowling for many years to come. ... See MoreSee Less
Well done, Brenda.
Can’t wait for the next “Technical Difficulties” video on the delivery this week. Had several members thank us for sharing the first one regarding the grip. Thanks for the great info! ... See MoreSee Less
Some great photos from today’s annual Calgary LBC Novice Championship by Assistant Drawmaster Kathy Labbee (who was one of the winners last season). The threat of wet weather kept a few at home today, but we saw 18 real die-hards out there. Congratulations to Gloria, Kat and Peter on their three game victory today 🥇. Colleen, Rob and Brenda took silver 🥈. While Karen, Ken and Laura took bronze 🥉. Proud to see the supportive play, camaraderie, and technical skills developed through the season. Some future Club Champions in development. 👏👏👏🥳🥳🥳🙏🙏🙏 ... See MoreSee Less
