This month, the club would like to recognize Bill McCollam, our 2019 Provincial Novice Men Singles Champion. He is an avid lawn bowler as I am sure you have noticed. Look around any night and you will see Bill practicing his fantastic shot! He has been attending various club tournaments this past week and had three wins in just one week:
- Willowdale men’s triples (with Bob Penner also of this club)
- Campbellford open pair
- Pickering Mixed triples
Well done Bill, you make us proud!
If you would like to see someone in the club featured, let Pam know.
