Spring Rolls

Summer’s almost here: come out for Spring Rolls!

Time to dust off those bowls and get a jump start on the season with the Spring Rolls lawn bowling league! This is an open draw game on Saturday afternoons for members who are itching to get on the greens with other players. Weekly standings will be tallied, this an opportunity to get back into the swing of things with a little friendly competition and a lot of socializing.

When: Saturday afternoons in March and April. Draw game starts at 1 pm, so get there a little early to get your chip in for either an 8 or 10 end game. You can also warm up with your fellow bowlers.

Cost: $15 or $5 drop in

What to bring: we’ll have a banquet permit, so bring whatever you’d like to drink (adult beverage or otherwise) and a shareable snack if you so choose.

Valentine's Day / Presidents' Day Game

Saturday, February 14, 2015

The Weather Channel forecast for Saturday is Mostly Cloudy, high of 57 degrees. That's nice enough for the most social of bowlers! Let's all get together for a Valentine's Day hug and whatever you do for President's Day (salute?). Rinks will be set up by 1:00 PM and your Games Chairman may even warm up before you all get there.

Let's start the season off with good group of happy bowlers!

Jefferson Park Greens Summit

Sunday, February 22, 1pm

This meeting is for bowlers (especially tournament bowlers) who want to make sure our greens stay in great shape. On May 1, after over 10 years as greens chair, Willie Weir is stepping down. Willie will facilitate the meeting, as we figure out how to continue to have some of the best greens in the country. To be clear, we are not looking for one person to replace Willie, I think everyone agrees that’s impossible.  It will most likely become a team of volunteers each committed to different aspects of greens maintenance. But we won’t know until you show up and make it happen. Men and women equally encouraged to participate.

JPLBC through the years

Thanks to the SeattlePI and Seattle Historical Archives, we can see a few photos of bowling on Beacon Hill and other transformations of Beacon Hill over the last century.
