The Burlington CC and the Burlington Lawn Bowling Club will be hosting an inter club competition on October 1 from 9am to 1pm to promote Lawn Bowling to BCC members and Curling to BLBC members. This will be an excellent opportunity to give lawn bowling a try and for the BCC to promote curling to our neighbours.
The BCC is working with the BLBC to promote our sport to each others members. This is a good opportunity for the BCC to promote curling to a group that may have the free time to play during the day.
There is only space for 80 to participate. Forty players will play a 4 end curling game at BCC and the other 40 players will play a 6 end Lawn Bowling Game at the BLBC. Then there will be a quick lunch and the players will switch and make their way to the other venue to try the other sport. Instruction for both Lawn Bowling and Curling will be available before the event.
To sign up for the Lawn Bowling/Curling Event in October, please contact Brian by separate email.
We will contact all those who sign up this spring and remind them and confirm their participation in the early fall.
That Time of Year Again
Our curling season is starting to wind down. Here are a couple of reminders for all members:
1. Brooms and Lockers
After you have played your final game, be sure you clear out your locker and take your broom from the storage bin in each locker room. Thanks!
2. Membership Status
If you plan on changing your membership status next year ( adding a section, or eliminating a section ) to your membership, please let us know so the club office can send the proper invoice to you in May.

Contacting the Club Manager by Email
Periodically members will want to contact Brian and they click on “reply” to the Weekly BCC Update when they receive it. When your email is received, there is a chance it may get lost in the many vacation notices, bounce backs or notices of delayed emails received each week when the newsletter is sent out to 800+ addresses.
All members are welcome to email Brian at anytime. The best way to contact him is to compose a new email, and send it to [email protected]. He will then receive it as a separate item and respond as soon as he can. Thank you for your cooperation.
