Thanks Parksville lawn bowling

I was recently introduced to the Parksville Lawn Bowling group that I joined this week.

I was recently introduced to the Parksville Lawn Bowling group that I joined this week.

I want to send out a huge thank you to all of those people who showed me and the other novice bowlers patience, shared their experience, time and most importantly their friendship and camaraderie.

To Ed and Carolyn Russell, my benefactors who encouraged me to go the open house, my personal coaches, Pat Kelly, Sandi Mitchell, Peter Scott and all the other coaches who were involved with coaching the novices.

To Cheryl Baker who seems to live at the bowling rink, remembers everyone’s names and takes care of the club’s membership and finally to Barb, at the gym, who passed her deceased mom’s bowls on to me so they could be used and enjoyed again.

This game seems to bring out the very best in people. It is a sport of gentle manners and most importantly fun and friendship. I believe I have just joined a new family of friends.
