On May 4th at 1.30pm we will have our official opening of the outdoor season on grass. The afternoon will start with a few words from Councillor Filion and the throwing of the first bowl. This is followed by the Spider, where we all take one bowl and stand on all sides of the green, and on the signal bowl at the Spider in the middle of the green. Closest wins! At this event we collect for the North York Womens Shelter. We follow with two 6 end games to stretch after the hibernation of Winter. There is no entry fee on opening day and the teams are drawn. Tags up by 1.15pm!

Be a Buddy for a New Bowler
As a Buddy for a New Bowler, you are a sort of informal ambassador for our Club and for the sport of bowls, generally. It is not at all necessary to be an expert bowler yourself.
The Buddy’s role is to act as a social and practical resource to a New Bowler during his or her first year of membership, helping to establish a positive relation between the New Bowler and our Club.
You will offer encouragement and help orient the New Bowler. You will introduce the New Bowler to other members, perhaps offer to bowl with him or her from time to time. You will explain how the Club works, such as what different sorts of activities we have, leagues, Holiday events, etiquette, how to sign-up, how to be a “spare”, where to find things, how to buy used bowls, how he or she can get questions answered if you don’t know the answer yourself.
You will take the initiative to have semi-regular personal contacts with the New Bowler during their first year, in a way that makes sense for the both of you.
And you will know that you have been successful, when your New Bowler renews their club membership for the following year.
Buddy is encouraged to invite new member to play in President Club tournament with you.
