Where but Victoria can you lawn bowl on New Year’s Day? No, not Australia but Victoria, BC, Canada.
Although this year’s Victoria Lawn Bowling Club’s annual event could be compared to a West Coast polar bear swim, once the skiff of snow was cleared off the greens, members enjoyed an hour+ invigorating lawn bowling. Short jacks were the order of the day. Some bowls meandered in the frozen grass and numb fingers dropped a few but the skilled bowlers still had the touch.
Socializing over mulled wine, hot tea and seasonal baking rounded out the day. Fun was had by all.
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017
