OLBC VOLUNTEERS SAVED OVA MONEY!
The green was closed twice in May, for verticutting and for fertilizing so it’s ready for bowlers to come out and bowl.

And when you’re bowling on the green, remember to thank those who showed up to help clean up as True North did the verticutting. These valued bowlers showed up at the break of dawn on a cold, foggy morning to follow behind the verticutter, cleaning up the chopped grass. Their attention to detail doesn’t just mean that the green is in better shape, it also saved OVA the cost of having True North do the clean-up!

Our volunteer team, lead by Jim Krause and Bob Dodd:
Irene I’Anson
Mark Johnston
Sandra Pessner
Steve Pickell
Bob Stephens
Jeff Vanderheyden

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!

JACK, BY ANY OTHER NAME

In the three bowls sports – lawn bowls, bocce, and pétanque — the lawn bowls “jack” is by far the largest target ball and the bocce “pallino” is the next largest while the pétanque target ball is by far the smallest, just 1.14 – 1.22” in diameter. But as an article in All About Pétanque points out, although it may be diminutive in size the pétanque target ball has the richest vocabulary of names.
