That was in Willowdale. Two natural greens and one artificial. A great time and the hotel so close we were able to walk to it. My 4s team got to the bronze medal match against Nova Scotia which, unfortunately, we lost. We had beaten them in the round robin.

Some very interesting insights here...Give people a 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗼 𝘃𝗶𝘀𝗶𝘁, then give them a 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗼 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝘆, is the message from Thornbury Bowls Club, who feature in today's good news story.
About 10 years go, Thornbury Bowls Club (TBC) was really struggling financially and had dwindling membership numbers - the two obvious drivers to create change. The Club sought assistance from their Regional Bowls Manager, Paul Holtschke, to help document new short and long term plans, and help them apply for some grants which helped to get the ball rolling.
The committee at the time were met with many barriers; a lack of finances, an older membership base whose sole focus was placed on bowling members, and a lack of technical know-how. It became clear that turning away large groups, who have the potential to go on to become regular patrons, social or bowling members, was detrimental to the Club, whether you like their attire or not! A bar staffed only by older bowling members, that closes at 6pm, is not going to attract much new patronage. 𝗦𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱 𝗳𝗮𝗺𝗶𝗹𝗶𝗮𝗿?
We bet at the time the Club didn't think that live music, market stalls, yoga on the green or being a popular function space was ever a possibility, but it was! 🎵 🤵 👰 🤸

Great to see juniors at Wanderers Lawn Bowling Club getting back to play! 👍👍👍👏👏👏We were pretty excited yesterday to have our Juniors Program, led by longtime Juniors Coach Lena Cameron, kick off at the club with the kids getting some of their first bowls in of the season under our LBNS Phase 2 Return to Play. The kids were bowling excellent and were very good at keeping to their social distancing and other Return to Play rules. They sent in this photo with them all together (but apart too!) with their masks at the end of their session of bowls. Looking forward to seeing them bowling around our club throughout the rest of the season! ... See MoreSee Less
Dixie was a great bowler, good company and a super person. We’ll all miss her very much.
This is very sad news.
What a shock to read this, she was always so friendly and a great bowler.
I bowled against Dixie many times. She was a great bowler, a fierce competitor and a gracious lady. She will be sorely missed.
A Sad Day Indeed. God Bless. I shall play " Last Post". She will be truly missed.
A lovely lady in everyway. Sure going to miss her.
