Rain or shine, this group is always ready to bowl

King City Lawn Bowling Club members keep up sport year round


by: BARBARA SHERMAN - READY TO BRAVE THE ELEMENTS - Hardy members of the King City Lawn Bowling Club who ventured out on the bowling green on a recent rainy Saturday include (from left) David Mack, Ed Otte, Mary Clyburn, Candee Wilson, Loy Larsen, Steve Shobe, Sue Sutter, Beverly Simpson and Stan Halpin.The King City Lawn Bowling Club now has its own website at www.kingcitylawnbowling.com.

This new production is available for newcomers to find and join the club by registering online. The club is connected to the Northwest Division and BowlsUSA as well.

The King City club is growing, and members hope that people who read this will find the website very helpful.

It gives the rules and regulations of the game, videos to watch, where to buy equipment, an events calendar and how to get in touch with the club.

Club members hope it won't be long before they see new names on their e-mail list.

It would be great to have newcomers come out on the green this summer and learn this happy, inexpensive and social game.

Watch out for snow bowlers! There is a strong possibility that you may see photos of a group all dressed up, bowls in hand, in cold-winter attire on the green waiting for it to snow.

Why? Well, the King City club heard that in Washington state, one club did some snow-bowling a year or so back, so they thought they would try it.

Unfortunately it seems that snow doesn't want to participate as yet this year, and there is a bigger chance of seeing bowlers in ankle-deep water trying to bowl in Oregon.

Whatever happens, club members promise to take good care of the green's surface and just have fun, and no doubt the hot tea, hot coffee and hot chocolate gang will show up.

Also, there are going to be a few more food get-togethers in the coming year.

Check the website, make inquiries at the Clubhouse and come join the game.
