WE’VE STARTED TRAINING!
Have you been wondering what people are doing on the bowling green? Now’s your chance to find out.
Whether you’d like to get an introduction to lawn bowling or to get fully trained, we’d love to see you. To learn more:
• Pick up a brochure near the entrance to the green, or
• call Tony Lachowicz, our head trainer, at 707-888-1430, or
• send us an email at OakmontLawnBowling@gmail.com, or
• drop in at 9:30 on a Saturday morning, that’s our “drop-in” day when someone will explain what’s going on, maybe let you roll a few bowls (it’s a left-over from the French that they’re called “bowls” not “balls”).

TOURNAMENT RESULTS!!!!
Yes, you read that right! We held our first tournament in over a year. Our intrepid embedded reporter, Pam Dempsey, sent in the following results:
1st place to Jim K and Marilyn
2nd to Tom T and Pam D
3rd place Steve P and Mark J
Jim and Marilyn won the spread
It was a fun day and good to see everyone.

CAN I BOWL WITHOUT A MASK?
The CDC says if you’re fully vaccinated, you don’t need to wear a mask outdoors. We should still maintain some distance, so we’ll stick to the 5, spread-apart, rinks and no triples. And if you feel more comfortable wearing a mask (allergies, Covid, forgot to shave, . . .), yes, continue to wear one.

WHAT CAN WE TOUCH?
The CDC has agreed that Covid is “rarely” transmitted via surfaces, so we’re carefully returning to our old rules for handling bowls, mat, jack and scoreboards. We’re also returning to the daily draw, but with only one person handling the chips. And, if you use club bowls, please sanitize them before returning them to the bowls room.

DIDN’T SOMEONE PROMISE A REFRESHER COURSE?
Contact Jim Krause if you’d like a refresher course before going back to bowling. I got the impression he’d LOVE to do some training!
