*** PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS ALL CLUB ACTIVITIES ARE ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! ***
Update: May 13, 2020
The Royal Lawn Bowling Club remains closed subject to the Alberta government’s restrictions as a result of the pandemic. Bowls Alberta is working to present a case to the government to have lawn bowling greens re-open under restrictions that will satisfy all requirements including physical distancing and group size limitations. Whether our green will be allowed to reopen, or any indication of timing is uncertain at this point.
Meanwhile, the facilities committee, led by Pete Wilson, is working with the government on a proposal to upgrade our green so that we can host future Alberta and Canada wide tournaments. This will involve work like resurfacing and leveling, new ditches and plinth boards and expanded grass area on the south side of the green (among other things). The timing has yet to be determined but the board is leaning to doing it this year given that the green may remain closed or have limited access due to the Covid-19 virus. Decisions are still pending and will depend on government approval and process.
No new date for a casino for the Royal Lawn Bowling Club has been scheduled at this time. Betty will advise all volunteers once we have any news on a rescheduled date.
Memberships from 2019 have been extended into 2020 at no additional cost pending a definitive plan for the reopening of our green and facility. Those who have paid for new memberships for 2020 will have their membership extended into 2021.
If you have not received one already, all members from last year can expect a call from either Betty or Dennis to check on how you are doing and to answer any questions you may have.
The website will be updated with news as it is received.
