This is the big week for Newport Harbor Lawn Bowling Club and the South West Division. We’re hosting the US Open Lawn Bowling Championship. We have people attending from Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Ireland, Scotland, the Netherlands and many clubs across the United States. It requires a lot of work from members of all the clubs in the region and many of our members have lent a hand.
Come and see your fellow members compete and enjoy the best bowlers in the world competing here at Newport Harbor and at other venues in Southern California.
A few diehards showed up for Sunday afternoon bowls. It was very hot and not the best conditions to play in! But it was fun to have the well earned drink and hors d’oeuvre after the game.
Some early birds getting acclimatized for the US Open also showed up. Players from New Zealand and Australia who we’ve seen in the Open before. They played some friendly ends getting some practice before the big tournament starts next weekend. There were some keen members happy to join them. It will be a busy week getting ready for the US Open.
In 86 degree, sweltering heat, Ladies Day was quite unique in September. Because of the heat? Absolutely NOT! Because of the extreme THOUGHTFULNESS of a male bowler who decided he would dress up for the ladies...bowtie and all!
