Due to the unprecedented current environment, we regret to inform you that the Stanley Park Lawn Bowling greens are closed and all tournaments, leagues, draws and events are cancelled until further notice. All corporate events are also cancelled. Without membership fees and our large corporate event revenue, we are looking at emptying all reserves and hitting a negative cash position before next spring.
Therefore, we are asking members and others for help in the form of donations (tax-deductible). The suggested amount is $180 per bowler, which represents the 2020 membership dues less association fees and GST. There is a suggested amount of $45 for social members. Not a current member? If you are interested in supporting this historic West End space and our century old affiliation with Stanley Park, please give what you can. The Parks Board has been very helpful and has already created an online donation link for us and other clubs. The link is here: https://donate.vancouver.ca/SPLBC and will be available on our website. Funds flow through the Park Board, where tax receipts are generated automatically and individual donors’ names and amounts will be kept confidential.
