Gimli LBC members will remember 2020 as the year of the move. Big changes have taken place and the membership is eager to finish the job and get back to bowls. Club president Ian Thompson and wife Elaine are huge contributors at the club and were instrumental in the massive project. Below, in her words is Elaine’s account of this major undertaking.
They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England’s foam
Attention Lawn Bowlers:
A friendly reminder that the deadline for Triples League registration for the upcoming 2020/21 winter season at Soul Sanctuary is September 12th, 2020.
To date we have received twenty confirmed registrations. The minimum number of registrants to run the league is twenty four participants (eight teams). We need ten teams or thirty players in order to run jitney in the afternoon. At eight teams we will not be able to offer jitney in the afternoon given gym rental cost. If you are thinking about jitney only at Soul this winter it may not be offered. I encourage you to consider joining our league. Please email your registration to email@example.com or call me at 204-275-1786 if you have questions.
