Green's Seminar at BLBC:
In association with the OLBA, the Greens Seminar that Burlington LBC so graciously hosted on April 29 was a huge success. Under the direction of BLBC greenskeeper Charlie Roach and his greens crew, the event was attended by 55 people representing 28 clubs and six Parks and Recreation employees from three different cities. All were welcome and we were pleased to see city parks staff in attendance.
Please check out Evan Bingley's photos of the various workshops: Adjusting the Mower. Information Exchange. Greens Discussion and Polisher Operation.

Men's Indoor Bowling Championship:
After round robins were completed, Al Price played against Jerry Kmet and Dave Burrows played against Ariel Minelli with many good shots and ou's and ya's from the crowd in this exciting semi-final.
The final was played by Dave Burrows and Jerry Kmet past winners in 2011 and 2015 respectively.
Dave Burrows came out on top with Jerry giving a very respectable battle to Dave's insistent ability to draw just a little closer.

Heritage Fair Display:
BLBC set up a display including indoor short mats, at the Burlington Heritage Fair held at Central Library. Doug Brusey, Charlie Roach, Mary Wesko and Lorraine Negus help set up the club's exhibit which ran from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Town Crier opened the event along with the Mayor Rick Goldring who also tried his hand at bowling. We had a pretty good turn out and quite a few tried, including at least 10 juniors.
