King City lawn bowlers are very happy with how their season unfolded

To the Editor:

This season has been a whopper for the King City Lawn Bowling Club.

We can't tell a lie. Yes, this summer's season has been quite marvelous for bowlers in and around King City. And what a great team of green caregivers we have in the club who are keeping up the maintenance and preparation of the bowling lanes.

Membership has been steadily increasing, and the welcome mat has been used by visitors from Mount Hood, Florida, as far away as New Zealand, and Long Beach, Calif. This active local club has prospered in the sunshine.

There will be end-of-year get-togethers, luncheons and, of course, the annual meeting of the club. A notice will be sent out soon.

Those who have read this and have wondered about the game can contact the club by email, telephone or via our website to discover just how easy and entertainingly healthy it would be to participate next year.

If this unseasonal fall weather continues on and allows bowling in comfort before the frosty, wet season begins, there will be some more fun in 2014, or a chance to just rug up and enjoy the view from the King City Clubhouse.
