More than 55 VLBC lawn bowlers and croquet players gathered at noon on Thursday to partake in another one of Chef Peter’s BBQ burgers, salads, beans and libations from the bar.
Then it was out onto the greens—upper to play croquet and lower to bowl in another LOONIE ‘FUN’ draw organized by George Gibson. Bowlers had a choice of Australian/Pro Ten Pairs or Triples/Modified Pro Ten 3. During play George circulated to explain the somewhat perplexing scoring system, which provided exercise for the brain as well as the body.
