The Club is fortunate to have a large selection of club bowls and donated bowls for our members to use. These bowls are intended for the use of all members and should remain at the club. Remember that we have over 100 bowlers and our greens are active every evening and on Monday and Wednesday mornings. We do allow club bowls to be signed out for outside club tournament play but must be returned in a timely fashion after the tournament is completed. The sign up sheet is in the bowls annex.
I am pleased that Matt Hayes has agreed to do the indoor maintenance at the club this winter. Matt did a bang up job this summer and found things to clean up tidy up that had not been touched in years, like the shed and the maintenance room. And who can forget that he washed the club house walls his first week.
Snow removal from steps and walkway will be done by Gordon Curtis, Kathy Myketyn and June Hodgins. The parking lot snow removal is taken care of by the HRM Parks Maintenance group.
Dartmouth Bowlers are doing it again. So far we have 10 members who will be attending the 2014 Canadian Championships in Manitoba.

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 score boards, 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 Levee’s, BBq’s, 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.
