A Packed Tournament Season is Wrapping Up

First Day of the Open Singles Tournament
First Day of the Open Singles Tournament

By Mary Blake

The Lawn Bowling Club is always excited to have new bowlers. Bowling is 6 days a week (Monday through Saturday), afternoons October 1st through April 30th. If you’re curious, drop by and ask about the game. Lessons are free for all Oakmont residents. Membership is $20 per year. Club bowls are available for practice and used bowls are available for purchase.

OLBC has a very quick-rising star! One of the newest bowlers, Cynthia Goodwin, has made it to the final round of the Open Singles Tournament. This was no mean task. On her way, she defeated Ted, Jeana, and Steve.
On Tuesday, October 12, she went nose-to-nose against Tom. To get to this point, Tom has faced Richard (Cynthia’s husband), Jeannette, and Denise. As I write this, (October 11), I don’t know who won, but I’m sure it was fun to watch!

It’s been quite a season with tournaments almost every week. So, it’s time to thank so very many people who helped make these tournaments possible. First, thanks to Jerry for the incredible commitment he’s made to this club. Thanks to Pam, Francis, Steve, Jim K, Linda P, Jeana, for helping keep all the pieces together. And thanks to the fans who came to watch so many tournaments. They made a huge difference. AND thanks to anyone overlooked!

The next social is the Halloween Tournament and Dinner on Friday, October 29, bowl at 4 pm, and eat at 6 pm!
The Halloween Tournament will be a fun game with the winner(s) determined the same day. Costumes are encouraged.
Food will be pizza, salad, and dessert. BYOBoos, of course. Cost is $12 per person.
Jeana needs an accurate head count for ordering food and setting up tables. So please RSVP either by signing up in the bowls room or by emailing Jeana at jeanagarcia@gmail.com. Jim K will collect your $12 at the dinner.

Members are invited to the annual meeting in Meeting Room B in the Central Activities Center for discussion and the club elections. The meeting will be Friday, November 5th, noon to 2 pm.

Jeana has shirts and hats for sale. Shirts are men’s and women’s, white with club logo, for $23. Sizes range from SM to XXL. Hats are unisex, white with club logo, for $15. Information is in the bowls room. Contact Jim K or Jeana to place your order.
