The secret to making our club a success year after year has been and will always be our members who give back. In the beginning, our members volunteered hours to build our first club house (now bowls house), make umbrella tables, make lane numbers and markers, make scoreboards, raise money, clean the green and of course instruct new members on the game. Year after year, the members of the Dartmouth Lawn Bowls Club volunteer their time and expertise. Just think, we would not have successful New Year Levees, barbeques, tournaments, Christmas Parties, instructing new members and regular club play without those who dedicate their time to making us the best club in Atlantic Canada.
An account has been set up at Bluenose Bottle Exchange at 99 Woodlawn Road for refundable recyclables. Let the cashier know the donation is to go to the Dartmouth Lawn Bowls Club and the amount will be recorded into our account. If you do not have room to collect at home a bin will be provided at the club to support this effort for the club.
The club has also set up a library of books and magazines for sale. Donations of books and magazines would be greatly appreciated. One book or two magazines will sell for $1.00.
After a 12 year absence from Nova Scotia hosting the top national event in Junior Lawn Bowls, Lawn Bowls Nova Scotia are pleased to announce that the Dartmouth Lawn Bowls Club has been selected by Bowls Canada Boulingin as the host of the 2017 Canadian Junior and Under-25 Championship, to be held July 31-August 7, 2017.
“We’re excited at the opportunity to be able to showcase the future stars of our sport,” event co-chair Ann Marie Siteman stated after learning of Dartmouth’s selection to host the event. “An event like this is an honour to bring back to Nova Scotia with an opportunity for local bowlers and the public to see outstanding play from these top notch Juniors that will not disappoint.”
These championships offer many opportunities to the young stars of our sport from around the country. The winners of the Under-25 Men’s and Women’s Singles will represent Canada at the 2018 World Junior Championship, held in recent years at the Broadbeach Bowls Club in Queensland, Australia. As well, the top four in each of the Junior and Under-25 Singles events will be named to the Youth Developmental Squad of the Canadian National Team.
A host of many national level events since the club was founded in 1982, the Dartmouth Lawn Bowling Club has hosted many major competitions including the Canadian Lawn Bowling Championships. The club most recently hosted the Women’s tournament of the Canadian Senior Triples Championship in August 2016. They are the largest club in Nova Scotia with over 130 members playing on the artificial turf green on Pleasant Street, just a few minutes away from downtown Dartmouth.
