As our commitment to the sport of lawn bowls in the US, a portion of the every members annual fee to JPLBC goes to BowlsUSA.  This provides each member the opportunity to bowl at all three levels of tournament play if they so choose. In NW Division and Jefferson Park tournaments, the director can assist members in finding playing partners, if needed.
