    Please join us for an afternoon of lawn bowling, followed by a BBQ light supper.  This is a repeat of our 2022 event, which was a lot of fun!

    Lawn bowling is low impact exercise, with walking, bending and stretching. No prior experience is needed! We will be given a 15-20 minute lesson in the basics of the game, and then be divided into teams to play.

    The only specific dress requirement is flat soft soled shoes, with no open heels or toes (in case you drop a ball!) and no spikes or cleats. A wide brimmed hat and sunscreen are highly recommended, as there is no shelter from the sun on the lawn.

    The optional BBQ following the bowling will consist of a hamburger, salad, a soft drink/water and a dessert
