Hi Bernie and Bill. Do you play crown green or lane bowls?
In Western Canada all we have is lane bowls.Extremes of weather and temperatures
would destroy a crown green in one season.Pouring rain at night then a very deep freeze
next day would cause ice ridges.At the moment my dear lady Sheila is the ladies individual
champion of the club here in the Cowichan Valley and along with her ladies doubles partner
has just had an 8 point end in tournament play so the medal award is on its way from Bowls Canada.
Next week she is marking for the Canadian National Championship being held ,this year, in Victoria but
as for me if I bent over to bowl I would fall flat on my face(maybe not I have a Jewish nose
so I am a bowling widower
from April to late September.As long as I have the coffee set,the shopping done and the veggies ready I get away with most anything else
