2018-19 Season Underway

Today marked Day #1 of this winter season.  The new indoor surface is designed more specifically for soccer and lacrosse, but we managed to play our games on it anyhow.  It is indeed more challenging than the previous carpet.  However, we hope that it improves for us with continued use.  Results will be posted as soon as received from the convenor.

The afternoon jitney was also well attended for the first day.  We encourage more folks to come out and “GIVE IT A TRY” in the coming weeks.  Afternoon game time is 1:00 PM and charge is $3.00.

2017-18 Champions

We have a new surface this year which will prove to be a bit challenging but should improve with more play on it.  Members are encouraged to stay for the afternoon jitney to welcome our casual members.  Afternoon jitney is at 1:00.

Norwood Celebrates 90 Years!

90th Birthday.jpg

Any story about lawn bowls in Manitoba has to include recognition of Norwood LBC.  Those in the know, know, that Norwood has the green, Norwood has the trophies, Norwood has the hard-working volunteers, it has the history, and, it has a thriving membership. It’s the membership that makes it great. It’s ALL about the people – they are fun, friendly, hard working, successful, and dedicated.

Manitoba’ s lawn bowls community is truly fortunate to have such a club. Today Norwood LBC celebrates its ninetieth birthday and looking back there is much to celebrate and be proud of –  we recall the people, the fun times, and the special moments that make up our memories.  Now we look ahead, to tomorrow, to the future, to making more great memories and further cementing Norwood’s place in Manitoba History.
