The Labour Day Tournament held on Sept 4 was a great success! Eighteen HLBC members turned out for three games of triples. While everyone who came out to play was a winner, the winners of the President’s Cup were Cecilia Gillespie, Ann Black, and Jean Shepansky. Good bowling!!

Bowls Alberta and the Alberta 55 Plus Association hosted the qualifiers for the Canada Plus 55 games on Aug 27-29. The Highlands Lawn Bowling Club was well represented! Barb and Tony Spencer (mixed pairs 70+), Ann and Bill Black (mixed pairs 55+), Barb Spencer and Vivian Kwan (women’s pairs 70+) Tony Spencer and Richard Turner (men’s pairs 55+) will be going on to the games in Kamloops next summer. Good going, everyone!

Thank you to Makadiff Sports for the RESTART grant and to the City of Edmonton for the Community Initiatives Operating Grant. These funds helped to offset our operating costs and keep us on the green in 2021!

Thank you to the New Horizons for Seniors Program for their generous support of our project, Engaging Seniors in Sport and Community!   With this funding, HLBC was able to purchase 22 sets of bowls in smaller sizes,  equipment that helps people with back and knee problems to  keep bowling, two sets of steps to the green, and sun umbrellas.  With this new equipment our club is well-positioned to provide fun and safe bowling for seniors and the entire community.
