A very special thank you to everyone who helped for a job more than well done! We have worked for 4 weeks outside. Some mornings have been cold, hot, sunny and windy. Avril is camera shy, I missed Mary and Lorraine who kept us on track for the size “0”’s for indoors to capture them working. I was busy cleaning bowls and forgot about pictures. If I missed anyone, I apologize. I was a better cleaner than painter!
I saw the post from Cary Lucier of Windsor and commented that it was a great idea to repaint the bowls that were in sad shape. Theresa ran with the idea and recruited help. Others joined in including new members, Linda and Jennifer. Bill was the lone man. Lorraine told us what colours to use on the indoor bowls. It took about 3 mornings to clean and paint every set. Friday should see us about 95% finished. We are waiting on a couple of sets of bowls that are missing.
New members who rent bowls will find it much easier to identify the bowls they are using. When we have corporate events the bowls will look terrific!
The Board gave me approval to buy supplies which might have been $150, but I spent less than $15 thanks to donations, which were very much appreciated!
We painted about 50 sets of club bowls. Some aren’t used often but when they are they look new and spiffy.
A huge thanks to everyone including Cary for the idea.
