Granville Park Visit 2019

Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club visit to Granville Park Lawn Bowling Club September 14, 2019

The Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club visited the Granville Park Lawn Bowling Club on Saturday, September 14, 2019 to join together for an afternoon of social lawn bowling.  These home and away games in alternate years started in 2012 when the Granville Park visit our club as part of our 100th year activities.  Our clubs started as one club but soon split into two clubs so we are really sister clubs enjoying a reunion each year.
Mixing up the players from both clubs enabled us to learn more about other bowlers, to play on different green and to enjoy the clubhouse and the hospitality of the members during tea break.
Unfortunately, this year, rain was the order of the day.  We still managed to play a few ends for most teams; one team persevered and played a complete game of 10 ends.

Photo from Carol at Granville Park shows the determination of the bowler (Ming from VLBC) and the friendship and consideration of the other bowler from GP sharing an umbrella. While the rained dampened the play, we had more time to mingle and socialize with members of the Granville Park LBC.  As usual, they set out their delicious and ample supply of beverages and sandwiches, cakes and fruit.  Much thanks for those at GP who organized the bowling and for the members who worked in the kitchen.
Our turn next year.  Good weather, good bowling, good friends and good food!
