Please avoid licking your fingers for the next 5 days. We suggest you wash any skin in contact with the greens after the rounds.
Bowls BC Indoor Singles Championship was won by New West bowler Ed Olson. After dropping the first game to West Van's Tim Mason, Ed won the second game to force a tie breaker which he also won. All three games were well played and very entertaining for spectators at the Pacific Indoor Bowls Club.
Congratulations to Ed Olson wins Gold; Tim Mason wins Silver; Richard Yau wins Bronze

Attention members who have an hour to spare ...
Spring has sprung,
The grass has rise,
I wonder where,
The bowlers is?
Tomorrow (April 2nd late morning) will be a day well-spent as we clean up in preparation for the season; and our S-AGM (April 8th at 4pm). After a particularly brutal winter, where we were knee deep in snow for far too long, we will soon be able take to the greens.
Look forward to catching up with everyone soon. Remember Opening Day is April 22nd; and Open house May 7th!
Many members expected to spend a few hours Saturday morning with Ed Olson to rake plugs and sand, as the greens were punched. But volunteers were given a break as our greens keeper Jack and his crew took advantage of the good weather and punched greens earlier than scheduled on Thursday.
This freed up a block of time, so a couple members picked up a paint brush and covered the old dated bright green on the exterior. When standing on the middle walkway looking at the clubhouse, all the green is gone!! The windows and doors are looking great an updated chocolatey brown, and the top around the frame of the awning is a bright neutral colour called Casablanca. Keep in mind you have to look at the clubhouse dead on to not see the sides, and turn a blind eye to the sheds, but before the season starts, weather permitting, all trim should be finished. Progress is being made.
The greens are in great shape!! With the sun shining on them yesterday I was so ready to grab my bowls and deliver my first bowl of my second season. Remember to mark April 2 on your calendar for Spring Clean-Up.
Today the results were posted for a draw to participate in the upcoming Hyack Mixed Triples event. Cecil and myself prepared a three step random process to select the teams from all the entries received yesterday.
