A cool but bright spring day greeted bowlers at the Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club for the kick off of this year’s outdoor bowling season.

The clubhouse, the greens and the gardens are in tip top shape, according to a news release from the club.

“The beauty is further enhanced by the charm of the neighbouring Qualicum Village (Kiwanis) housing project,” said the release.

Coun. Neil Horner officially opened the season by rolling the first bowl last week.

The club said it will be a busy season for bowling at this and other clubs in the region. Qualicum Beach will be hosting three major tournaments, starting with the McPherson Group Mixed Fours on May 9-10. In addition, the club will be home to the provincial men’s fours on July 3-5 featuring the best of the best in the province.

Spectators are always welcome to watch the games, tour this great facility, have a coffee and try out the sport. For more information, e-mail: qualicumbowling@gmail.com.
