We held a very successful event this morning when we hosted a visit from North Shore Probus. This was arranged by one our members, Kathy Maclean, who is also a Probus member. Events like this have a dual purpose. Firstly they bring in Revenue for the club and secondly they provide an opportunity for people who may not otherwise think about lawn bowling to give it a try.
Over 30 people attended and most of them tried bowling. We split the bowlers into groups of three or four and gave them lessons. After a few trial ends the groups played 4321 for about an hour and judging from the reactions thoroughly enjoyed it. Hopefully we will see some of the people returning for another session.
After the bowling the Probus club remained at the club for their lunch which their own members had prepared.
I’d like to thank Kathy Maclean for organizing the event and also the club members who gave up their time to teach our sport and help the groups with their 4321 competition. Thank you Eve Gorringe, Marg Salley, Marilyn MacMillan, Ralph Stoffers, Helen Beaton, Dianne Lauder and Louisa Arthur.
Next week the Northumberland Probus Club will be visiting for a similar event
It looks like Eve has everyone's attention
Kathy looks like she is explaining bias. I hope she got it right!
