No fee required.

The Weather Channel forecast for Saturday is Mostly Cloudy, high of 57 degrees. That's nice enough for the most social of bowlers! Let's all get together for a Valentine's Day hug and whatever you do for President's Day (salute?). Rinks will be set up by 1:00 PM and your Games Chairman may even warm up before you all get there.
Let's start the season off with good group of happy bowlers!

This meeting is for bowlers (especially tournament bowlers) who want to make sure our greens stay in great shape. On May 1, after over 10 years as greens chair, Willie Weir is stepping down. Willie will facilitate the meeting, as we figure out how to continue to have some of the best greens in the country. To be clear, we are not looking for one person to replace Willie, I think everyone agrees that’s impossible. It will most likely become a team of volunteers each committed to different aspects of greens maintenance. But we won’t know until you show up and make it happen. Men and women equally encouraged to participate.
