Elora Rocks Lawn Bowling Club
An extra week for practice and coaching
Due to the large volume of new and prospective bowlers, we have decided to give everyone a second week for practice and coaching. The start up of league bowling is postponed until the week of May 30th.
Members can come to the club at 7:00 pm on Monday 16-19 and May 23-26. This will give the coach time to work with new and prospective members and get the leagues set up for the new start on Tuesday, May 31st.
The first regular Monday night jitney will be on May 30th. The Sunday afternoon jitney on May 29th has been cancelled.
For more information about joining the club contact Ian Burns at 519-846-0642 or email@example.com
Club gets grant to upgrade lighting
The Elora Rocks Lawn Bowling Club is the thankful recipient of a $102,200 capital grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. The funds will be used to upgrade our electrical system and replace the lighting on the bowling greens, allowing for play after sunset and possibly extending the season. A special thank you to our grants committee, Helen Mills and Gary Nelson (with help from Beverlie), who put in a huge amount of effort towards the successful application.
Welcome to the Elora Rocks Bowling Club. Since 1906 our members have been enjoying competitive lawn bowling and having great fun doing it. Our wonderful greens and facilities are at 74 David Street East in Elora.
Lawn bowling is a sport that can be enjoyed by all ages. It is a sport that you can start at any age, and it is never too late to take up the game.
We bowl from May to September. On Tuesdays and Thursdays we have league play – players are teamed in pairs for the season, with novices matched to more experienced players. On Mondays and Wednesdays we have jitneys – just turn up and teams are made up at random. We also have "pick-your-own-partner" games on Wednesdays. During the season there are tournaments which are open to any bowler affiliated to the Ontario Lawn Bowls Association.
