Please know that during a regular season we would normally open every day, except Mondays when the greens are closed for maintenance April 1 – September 30.  However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Nanaimo Lawn Bowling Club is open in a restricted model only as of July 7, 2020.  Access is for members only.  Only existing members may spectate.  No new bowlers will be able to access the Clubhouse or green.  The modified format will be four bowlers per rink and only four rinks open to ensure social distancing.  

Thank you to Vern Hagstrom for his creation of a new sign installed near the green at Bowen Park, and to Sandy Mitchell (Parksville) LBC for providing the wood base.

It will be a great day when we can see the green like this again:

The Semi-annual General Meeting was due to be held in April, again this will not take place until restrictions are lifted.

In the off season we get together for coffee.  Here are some pictures.  We also meet twice a week (1-4 pm Mondays and Fridays) to play short mat at Costin Hall in Lantzville (October to April).
