Loonie ‘Fun’ Nite

Without a doubt, the club’s first LOONIE ‘FUN’ NITE was a great success. Thanks to the organizational skills of George Gibson and his army of volunteers, over 50 members (34 bowlers/13 croquet players) and guests enjoyed a FUN-FILLED evening of bowling-related activities/croquet, BBQ burgers with all the trimmings, a wet-bar and ample opportunity to socialize.

From 4 to 5 pm, bowlers participated in challenging skills activities on the upper green: jack accuracy, draws to ditch, line of aim and trailing jack to ditch. Prizes ranged from 25 cents to a Loonie.

From 5 to 6:15, hungry participants filled plates with salad/fixings set out by the kitchen crew and burgers skillfully grilled by Peter. Some enjoyed their meal at inside tables, others sat outside to soak in the evening sun. Fun-filled activity, food, drink, friendship, a spectacular setting…one couldn’t ask for more!

The evening was rounded off by a 2-bowl Triples game of two 5-end sets. Each team was allowed a one-end ‘Power Play’ opportunity to double their score. If each team won a set or tied a set, they played a tie-breaker end.

All winning teams won a prize, top prize going to the team who won both games (ties determined by differential).
