Downtown Lawn Bowling


CPLBC is operated entirely by volunteers; volunteer club members carry out all the day-to-day maintenance and operation of our club.

Members of the Executive put in many hours on club administration. However, additional volunteers are needed in  a variety of other roles and are vital to the success of our club.  Many of these duties are enjoyable, social activities and only require a minimal amount of time.

Members can volunteer for each of the activities listed below on their club membership application/ renewal form or by going to the volunteer tab in the members-only section of our website.

(If you do not know the members-only password for this year, any member of the Executive should be able to tell you.)


BBQ nights are typically held on Fridays at 5:00 pm followed by bowling. Volunteers are needed to fire up the BBQ and cook the burgers. There will be some setup required (setting out paper plates and condiments) as well as clean up afterwards.

Bowls Games / Tournaments
Help with tournaments, set up rinks and learn how to be a draw master. This is a great way to expand your knowledge of bowling.

Building / Property Maintenance

Buildings volunteers maintain the structure of the club house. Tasks might be occasional painting, carpentry and electrical work. This is a year-round activity.

Chair: Wayne Carlow


Coaches are particularly involved in training newcomers to lawn bowling. May of each year is the busiest month for coaches.

Head Coach: Norman Malkoske


Fundraising duties are separate from those of group rentals. The lucky volunteer(s) are responsible for applying for our Thrifty Cards, BC Gaming and New Horizon Grants. This is done annually. The duties are not onerous… but it does require folk with good financial literacy to gather the necessary info, fill out the applications and stand as the contact person.

Garden volunteers are needed to maintain our beautiful roses, as well as to tend to the other gardens around the property. See our Gardens page for more information.


Rolling the greens, cleaning the ditches, mowing the grass (other than the greens) and raking the bocce court are some of the duties of the Greens volunteers.

Website volunteers keep our website up-to-date and running smoothly.  Ideally, it would be great to have different people maintaining different parts of the website (eg. calendar, news, tournaments, etc).
