Greeters welcomed between 55 and 60 visitors to Open House on the April 7- 8 week-end.
The relaxed ambience created by our Club mascot stretched out among the bowls eased any jitters visitors may have had about trying a new sport.
Guests were directed to the upper or lower greens to try out the sport of their choice: lawn bowling, croquet or both. Volunteers coached groups of two to four through the rudimentary steps of each game.
Play was followed by an offer of refreshments and socializing inside the club house. Many attendees signed up for a series of lessons offered in both lawn bowling and croquet during the month of April.

Thank you volunteers (greeters, coaches, kitchen, bakers, information/sign up table, greens setup, photographer) for helping to make this a fun and successful event. We look forward to seeing many new faces at our Opening Day celebration on April 28th.
