Indoor Short Mat

December 15th 

Just a reminder that the club will be closed on December 24th, 25th, 26th,  Open for afternoon bowling on the 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th.  Closed Dec 31st, January 1st & 2nd.  Regular bowling will begin January 3rd. 

Also 4-3-2-1 on Thursday, December 16th is canceled.


Wishing everyone a safe & happy holiday season.

UPDATE: November 30th

Just a few items to keep you up-to-date on what's happening.

  1. There will not be open bowling on Saturday mornings –due to poor attendance. The Saturday afternoon jitney has not been full so there should be room for the morning bowlers to come in the afternoon. In a perfect world we would have 16-18 bowlers!
  2. We will not be holding our usual Christmas jitney – hopefully next year we can get back to celebrating with all of us together (including Santa). The New Year's Day get together is also cancelled. The club will be closed on December 24th, 25th, 26th, 31st and January 1st. We will have open bowling on December 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th. I will leave it up to the individual drawmasters for the leagues if they want to play during the holidays.
  3. The one tradition that will continue is our donations to the Food Bank. I will be putting out a box to collect donations in the next week. Please give generously.

Happy holidays to everyone. Lorraine

Indoor Short Mat Update
We are having issues with clubhouse key holders accessing the facility before the Draw Master arrives. This allows players to enter without the required contact tracing. We must comply with COVID protocols or risk getting shut down. Unless you are on the board or the executive, please do not access the clubhouse without the Draw Master present. If you possess a club house key for summer access only, please return it to Neil Johnson as soon as possible and it will be returned to you for the next out door season. Thank you

Indoor Bowling Approved for 2021-22
October 7th, 2021
Indoor bowling for the 2021-22 season is a GO!! There are many protocols to follow but the most important one is you must have a document showing you have received your 2 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine in order to play indoors. Upon entering the club all players must sign a contact tracing sheet & a declaration of compliance regarding Covid-19. Masks are to be worn at all times except when bowling. More details will be found on our website soon.

We will only be allowing 12 bowlers for each session at this time. Hopefully this number will be increased in the near future. We will have 3 mats –minimum of doubles on all 3 and triples on the outside mats. Our schedule will be much the same as in previous years – including all leagues except the battle of the sexes. We are also able to have a meeting indoors for a maximum of 64 bowlers. The meeting will be held on Thursday, October 14th at 7:00pm. Please email me (see below) with the following information: 1. Are you planning to bowl indoors this season? 2. Will you be attending the meeting. 3. Do you plan to play in the leagues?- if so which one (s) in order of preference (only if you know what is on offer).

An application form was sent out in an email for you to print & complete. Please bring to the meeting or drop it off at the club. Payment can be by cheque, cash or e-transfer. If you plan to e-transfer - Evan will provide the applicable email at the meeting. We will follow all necessary guidelines in order to ensure the safety of all bowlers.

Looking forward to seeing you all back on the mats!
