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

Good luck Dartmouth Lawn Bowls Club on your exciting project! Hope to see pictures soon of its progress. 👀👍👏🙌As of today, the green is officially closed for a long awaited replacement of the surface here in Dartmouth! Thank you to all of those behind the scenes who have been working extremely hard to get us to the start of this major project. Special thanks to our fellow Metro area clubs (Wanderers Lawn Bowling Club, St. Mary's Lawn Bowls Club and Bedford Lawn Bowls Club) for opening their doors to our members during the duration of the project (details on that were sent to members on August 21st for Wanderers and St. Mary’s and will be coming out soon for Bedford). We hope you all will take the opportunity to bowl together with our fellow members of the bowls community until we are able to get back on the green in Dartmouth! Stay tuned to our social media for pictures of the project as it rolls along (pun totally intended!) and more details as we get closer to our new surface being officially complete! ...

Thank you so much Calgary! We’re very excited about the new green and can’t wait to get rolling on it in the not so distant future! Should be fun to see the progress over the next few weeks.
