  • Letter from President on Aug 02, 2021:
    The WLBC executive has decided it is in the best interest and safety of our bowling members that it be a requirement that ALL active bowlers be fully vaccinated as per the Province of Ontario guidelines. The Covid Declaration you sign each time you come on site, has been modified to include a paragraph saying you are in fact fully vaccinated.
    We remind all bowlers that the rules and guidelines, posted and displayed at the club be adhered to as bowlers come onto the club property. The club is following the guidelines, set down by the Province, the City of Toronto, Canada Bowls and the OLBA. We are doing our best to balance the safety of all participants with the goal of having fun and bowling.
    Currently we are looking for more volunteer Safety Officers, who are responsible for sanitizing commonly used items, and ensure that bowlers are following the Covid guidelines. Safety Officers typically get time to bowl as well! This is your club and we need your assistance to make it work.
    GORDON JONES, President
