A great friend of MB bowls is moving on. After 34 yrs of distinguished service in the Canadian Armed Forces he is pulling the plug, AKA retiring. Malcolm retires as a Chief Warrant Officer (CWO). This is the highest rank that a non-commissioned member can achieve, one which many aspire to but very few attain. Bravo! His career started out at HMCS Brunswicker in Saint John, NB and is coming to an end here in Winnipeg. Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan will be his next home – where he has secured a professional opportunity and where he can continue enjoying lawn bowls. We wish him the very best!
Malcolm’s been our COVID-19 Singles League convener for the past couple years. His departure will leave us in need of a replacement. BMI is grateful for Malcolm’s meaningful contributions to our bowls community. He’s been a convener, an organiser, an A list competitor, and a great ambassador for bowls. Regarding his time as a member of Bowls Manitoba Malcolm writes “Thank you everyone for your friendliness, this is truly what being a Manitoban is all about!”
Bowls Canada has put out a news release looking forward to what the “new normal” might look like.

It’s no secret that Norwood LBC has an exceptional group of dedicated volunteers. You might say they are the beating heart of a healthy club. Whether it be the meticulous care and grooming of our green or the development and construction of new projects to beautify and enhance the surroundings, thier efforts are unmatched. Featuring the perfect combination of brains and brawn, they can do anything. Oft times this hard work goes unnoticed. Here are some images of recent goings-on. Though there are many committed members who contribute to Norwood’s success, most of the heavy lift is done by Dennis D, John B, Bob V, Gerry C, Rick K, Bob A, Harold F, and Donna G. Bravo!!!
