Lawn bowlers kick off Langley season

The bowlers welcomed new members and civic officials.

Some new lawn bowlers dropped by the Langley Lawn Bowling Club (LLBC) on Saturday for the start of the season.

Under blue skies, veteran members gave tips to newcomers.

Langley City Mayor Ted Schaffer and Councillors Rudy Storteboom and Val van den Broek all tried their hands at bowling on the bright green patch of grass.

The Langley Lawn Bowling Club has eight greens, so 16 teams can play at a time.

“Anybody can come in to play, and we invite anybody to come in and try it,” said club president CHester Murray. “We ask for $25 from a person, and they can come in and try it during the lessons with our coaches, and if they desire to go forward, that $25 applies to the first year’s membership.”

You can find more information on the club’s website.
