Members of the Surrey Lawn Bowling Club, guests and dignitaries gathered under sunny skies last Saturday for the opening ceremonies for the 2011 season.

Dave Hayer, Liberal MLA for Surrey-Tynehead, and Surrey city councillors Mary Martin and Bob Bose joined guests and members for the festivities, which included a ceremonial bowl and a light lunch.

There are encouraging signs of interest in lawn bowling, which is enjoying a resurgence not unlike curling.

“Were signing up quite a few new members,” says club secretary Leo Golden.

The Surrey Lawn Bowling Club offers lessons at the start of the season, which runs to September.

The Surrey Lawn Bowling Club is located at Clayton Park, at 18513 70 Avenue.

There are eight greens. Sixteen teams play at a time. The club offers drop in and league play.

For more information, contact club president Bonnie Wright at 604-572-5123 or
