The Parksville Lawn Bowling Club throws open the doors for its big annual Open House this Friday and Saturday (April 19, 20) from 1-4 p.m. and anyone on the fence about getting in on the action.
According to PLBC’s Carol Bucyk, “club members are looking forward to greeting interested visitors, showing them around the up-to-date facilities and even taking part in a mini-game of bowls.”
Those attending the Open House, reminds Carol, should “remember to wear appropriate footwear (flat-soled shoes work best), and comfortable clothes that allow for movement.”
After a short overview, visitors will be able to get on the greens and play.
“Visitors will very quickly see that this game plays very differently from bocce or five-pin bowling and much more like curling or chess on grass with lots of strategy, skill and fun thrown into the mix.”
The club, which boasts over 190 members, operates year ‘round with lawn bowling tournaments, leagues and inter-club play taking place during the summer. During the winter months, members can be involved in darts, crib, bridge and short mat, as well as other seasonal activities.
The Parksville Lawn Bowling Club is located at 149 E. Stanford, across from Parksville Elementary School.

A reminder that Sunday (April 21) is PLBC’s opening day for the new season and Parksville mayor Chris Burger will be delivering the first bowl at 1:15 p.m.
