Lawn bowling-it's a tricky test of skill By CATHIE RETI Herald Staff Writer An idle bystander leering through the fence, watching black balls rolled at one an- other, may think that this recreational sport is one that is quite boring. But like curling, lawn bowl- ing is a game requiring skill, with the bowler trying lo get liis ball nearest the white ball that is rolled down the lawn at Hie start of the game. George Rowntree, a play- er with the Army, Navy and Air Force lawn bowling club, says the game can be quite tricky. The balls are biased, Waterton trips planned for youths Lifetime Recreations, an Op- portunities for Youth project is offering supervised week-long camping trips to Walerton Park for young people between the ages of 12 and 18. Members of the group In- volved in the project are John D e m e r s, Linda Sleightholtn. Stan Skretting, Allan Brian Coyle, Jolin Scott, Jolui Walkey and Terry Lee. Members will alternate in supervision, so that five at a time will be with Ihe campers on their trips. Up to 30 young people will be accepted for each trip, with the only charge being for bus fare to the park. The campers are required to bring their own equipment and supplies. Activities will include hiking fishing with some mountain climbing if the interest shown. The camp is located close to the Waterton lownsite. Other activities located i .Lethbridge and organized by the group for people of any age include all indoor sports, base- ball, picnics, wciner roasts hayrides and day hikes in thi coulees. Interested people may regis ter by telephoning Adams Par! Ice Centre at 327-7414. nd because of the way they shaped, they tend to urve when the ball slows own. Therefore, the ball is ot aimed at Ihe centre white all, but rolled towards the .ght of it. The biased side ol the hall i held toward the bowler 'hen throwing it. Mr. Rownlree said, that un- like alley bowling, lawn bowl- ing is not strenuous. About 70 people in Le.'h- bridge enjoy the sport which is played on a special green at Henderson Park. About 45 people play with the Army, Navy and Air Force club, which plays Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, arid about 25, mostly retired per- sons play with the Civic lawn bowling club on Monday and Thursday evenings. The game is not an expen- sive one, said Mr. Rowntree. Each player pays three dollars for green fees for the whole season, and a dollar to be a member of a club. In cases ot tournaments with out-of-town clubs, usually an additional dollar all that is paid. Mr. Rowntree said he'd like to see more people playing the sport, and if anyone was interested in playing, they may contact him at 327-8043. Betty Yvalson, business ager of the Student's Society Council, said no firm plans are down on paper but organizers re .talking about providing fa- cilities for about 20 children be- tween the ages of three and six years old. Mrs. Watson said the main reason for trying to establish the centre is to assist students who are having a tough time financially. "It's pretty difficult to attend university when you have to pay or a month for a she said. It is hoped that the provincial government will assume the major portion of the cost but the student's society is pre- pared to foot part of tho bill. Official university participa- tion will be restricted to provid- ing space. Plans call for a trailer from the east campus of the U of L lo be moved lo the west side to house the day care facility. Mrs. Watson said the council hopes to have firm plans pre- pared by the end of July to pre- sent to the provincial govern- ment. She said although the target opening is this fall, the cent- irc probably won't ma'eriaUis until later in (lie year. It could be difficult to cut through the reams ot govern- ment red lace before Septem- ber, she said.
