Oakmont Lawn Bowling Club


By Mary Blake

Don’t forget to bowl! It’s safe, fun, and good for you.

True, it isn’t easy to bowl with a mask on, but we’re doing it. And we’re keeping bowling safe for everyone.

To bowl safely, you’re mainly trying to make sure you don’t share cooties – you don’t give them to anyone else and no one else gives them to. So, continue what you’re doing: wear a mask, keep a distance, don’t share items. Singles, pairs, and cut-throat are OK, but not triples. And Oakmont has taped off all the benches for a reason. If you need to sit down (we ALL can understand that), bring a lightweight chair or two, just for you.

During the colder months (until May 1), drop-in bowling is at 12:30. But the green is sitting there ready for use throughout the day. Spreading out the times you bowl helps reduce congestion, so, if you’ve found someone to bowl with but not at 12:30, feel free to drop whenever weather and light permit.

This is just an aside: I’ve received emails lately from WildCare in San Rafael and The Bird Rescue Center here in Santa Rosa that birds, especially Pine Siskins, are dying from salmonellosis. This is often being spread from bird feeders and from bird baths. If you have bird feeders or bird baths, check out how to keep things clean and birds safe at The Bird Rescue Center’s website: https://birdrescuecenter.org/salmonellosis/

I went back in time to a wine country game from before I joined the club.
