Nancy Nishikawa enters the Hall of Fame!

Congratulations to our own Nancy Nishikawa who has been elected to the 2016 Bowls USA Hall of Fame! Nancy's selection is no surprise to those who admire her competitive bowling and appreciate her tireless work for the Jefferson Park club. It is those two qualities that secured her spot in the Hall of Fame. The winner of a multitude of local and division tournaments, competitor at the National Championships 22 times, and a tireless champion for the Jefferson Park Lawn Bowling Club are the qualities that caught the eye of the committee and secured her spot in the 2016 Bowls USA Hall of Fame. Nancy becomes the 6th bowler from the NorthWest Division to join the ranks of so many esteemed champions and competitors in the Bowls USA Hall of Fame.

Members Corner – Kathryn, how did you find JPLBC?

"I had been trying to find a sport on Beacon Hill that would be both competitive AND have a friendly community feeling. Jenny Mears told me about lawn bowling and sure enough, at JPLBC I found just the right mix: people who are serious about their sport, yet wholeheartedly welcoming to all levels of experience. I was so delighted to find this wonderful group; so diverse in age, background, and experience levels, yet all united in their great inclusive attitude. Everyone I have played with has been in equal parts earnest in improving their own game, and generous with helping a beginner." -Kathryn Rathke
