Volunteers are the life blood of any Club.
Below is a listing of the responsibilities of volunteers in several areas of our club.
We share these activities among our entire membership to make the load lighter and improve our members experience.
General Voluntary Actions of all Members:
Equipment and Green Care:
Our club has established a liaison committee, which will meet periodically with senior staff of the Parks Department to ensure that needed maintenance is carried out around the club in a timely fashion. To facilitate this we needed to define the roles that club members can play in the up-keep and maintenance of the clubhouse and greens facilities of James Gardens Lawn Bowling Club without any conflict with the duties of the staff of the Parks Department. The responsibilities of the two parties are outlined below. Communications between the club and the parks department will be funneled through a single contact to avoid confusion and multiple and/or mixed messages. Rick Nytko will act as our club contact. Please contact him if you become aware of work that needs to be carried out.
Basically the club is responsible for anything inside the clubhouse and inside the fence around the playing surface. Specifically
Parks Department Responsibilities:
During all competitions at the club this year instead of declaring a "Dead End" if the jack is knocked beyond the rink boundary, the end will continue with the jack being placed centre at the two metre mark. This is a rule which will be used during the upcoming Commonwealth Games and appears to be the "wave of the future."
