Lots to do, and every little bit helps! We need you!

In the spirit of an open and welcoming community, we strive to keep membership fees affordable and still maintain the club at high standards. To accomplish that, JPLBC needs every member to give what they can: time, special skills, ideas and leadership. Our club is bowler-powered and run by the hard work and efforts of our members. We have no paid staff and committee chairs need volunteers to help with every aspect of maintaining the club facility and programs. What category of contribution(s) fit for you?!

Donut Crew in action
donut-crew-lowering-green2Good greens are part of the tool kit for bowling success. In early May of 2011, Willie Weir, Richard Krueger, Itsu Nishikawa, Chris Davis, Doug Bradley and Paul Artman led the efforts to lower a large section of Green 2.
No easy feat! Using surveyors tools, knives, shovels, sand, leveling bars and muscle power the team diagnosed the situation, measured and cut the section of sod in need of repair, reduced the height of the green significantly and refit the sod to the ‘surgical site’.

Long days, cooperation and team work resulted in a successful operation. Thanks to the crew and the many helping hands that made it happen!
