Allot of good players on the best greens in canada, what a showdown
Seaside Lawn Bowling Club in Saint John, New Brunswick hired two summer students this summer, Jamie White and Quinn Belyea. These two summer hires assisted the greenskeepers with mowing, fertilizing, and verticutting; as well as prepared the outside of the green for laying sod.
The Sod Project has been planned for 2 years and the club received a grant from the Regional Development Corporation, Province of New Brunswick to carry out this project. As such, Jamie and Quinn first spread sand/gravel, then topsoil, and finally (with help from members) the sod was put down. With the completion of the Sod Project, the greens now have better drainage, increase player safety, and provide a level playing and walking surface. These two hires have been a great addition to Seaside LBC during the 2022 summer season!
Le club du boulingin de Seaside à Saint John, au Nouveau-Brunswick, a embauché deux étudiants cet été, Jamie White et Quinn Belyea. Ces deux employés ont aidé les gardiens de verts à tondre, fertiliser et verticouter les verts ; ils ont également préparé l'extérieur du vert pour la mise en place du gazon.
Le projet de gazon était prévu depuis 2 ans et le club a reçu une subvention de la Société de développement régional de la province du Nouveau-Brunswick, pour réaliser ce projet. Donc, Jamie et Quinn ont premièrement répandu du sable/gravier, puis de la terre végétale, et finalement (avec l'aide des membres) le gazon a été posé. Avec l'achèvement du projet de gazon, les verts sont maintenant mieux drainés, la sécurité des joueurs a été améliorée et la surface de jeu est uniforme. Ces deux embauches ont été un grand atout pour le club du boulingrin de Seaside pendant la saison d'été 2022 ! ... See MoreSee Less
Look what’s being planned for a year from now!!! Team 🇨🇦 are we getting ready??!!
The World Bowls Championships will be staged on the Gold Coast in 2023, more than three years after it was originally planned to be held.
Controlling body World Bowls (WB), host nation Bowls Australia (BA) and principal partners Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ) and Major Events Gold Coast (MEGC) have confirmed that the sport’s pinnacle international competition will be played from August 29 to September 10, 2023, some 1179 days after it was first meant to be contested before COVID-19 postponements.
Originally scheduled to commence on May 26, 2020, the event first suffered two postponements to its scheduling and was then ultimately cancelled due to travel restrictions impacting the 36-attending nations.
Organisers have undertaken to hold the first staging of a revised competition format in 2023, which will move to a biennial rather than quadrennial staging and do away with all barrier qualifying events to increase global participation, across the three previous planned Gold Coast clubs; Broadbeach, Helensvale and Musgrave. ...

Summer Student Highlight :
Bridgetown Lawn Bowling Club hired Keaton Theriault through the Canada Summer Jobs Grant and he has been an invaluable member of the club. He worked tirelessly throughout the day to keep the clubhouse clean and tidy by painting, trimming tree branches, repairing player benches, and everything in between. As you can see from the photo, Keaton also helped to maintain the green and surrounding areas. In addition to his maintenance responsibilities, Keaton makes visitors to the club and all bowlers feel welcome from the onset with his pleasing and outgoing personality. He even joins in on a game from time to time!
Le club de boulingrin de Bridgetown a embauché Keaton Theriault grâce à la subvention d'Emplois d'été Canada et il a été un membre inestimable du club. Il a travaillé sans relâche tout au long de la journée pour maintenir le club propre et bien rangé en peinturant, en taillant les branches, en réparant les bancs des joueurs, et tout autres tâches nécessaires Comme vous pouvez le voir dans la photo, Keaton a également aidé à entretenir le vert et les environs. En plus de ses responsabilités d'entretien, Keaton fait en sorte que les visiteurs du club et tous les joueurs de boulingrin se sentent les bienvenus dès le début grâce à sa personnalité agréable et dynamique. Il participe même à une partie de temps en temps ! ... See MoreSee Less

To cap off our Youth season of bowling, Calgary Lawn hosted a Youth/adult event on Sunday August 14th. This was the first time we joined youth and adults together into a tournament and it was a great success with 13 youth and 15 adults playing. The Don & Judy Blair trophy was named to honor Don who was the president of our club at both our old location and our new location and Judy who helped start our youth program at the old club and spent many years coaching our youth. It was a pleasure to have them present to participate in the bowling and to present the trophy to the winning team. Special thanks to club members Fred and Peter B for helping organize the event and for building the trophy. Special thanks to Marylyn and Florence for making the hotdog lunch! Huge shout out to Heather and Kim for their organizing of the day’s festivities.
We played pairs with each youth in our program being paired with an encouraging and enthusiastic adult from the club. All players stayed at the mat end to encourage communication and each team choose their order of play to best meet the desire and goals of the youth. Our goals of the event were to get the youth comfortable playing with the adults (so they will feel more welcome at club jitneys/tournaments) and to provide a new learning environment for those who wanted to take their bowling a step further. Like all of our events, our main focus was on doing our best and having fun!
It was great to see the teamwork, strategizing and learning that occurred as each pair bowled together. The youth were able to learn from the experiences of the adult bowlers and the adults were able to see the skill level of our youth. Most importantly, both kids and adults were smiling, laughing and having fun on the green! ... See MoreSee Less

2022 Canadian Singles Champion🏆🥇 ... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations Pat. Signals are a hard game specially at the national level. One thing I have heard from players is that the time limit once you’re in possession of the mat is not respected at the National as a player goes to the back of the green and spends for five minutes with the coach. This is not fair to the players from the east thatCan’t afford to bring a coach and it also interrupts the rhythm of the game. It’s a rule that should be respected￼￼
So well deserved 👏👏👏
