Our 100th Anniversary Gala Weekend

Please mark June 16, 17 and 18 on your calendars, and plan to join your fellow SPLBC club members for the Centennial Gala Weekend:  Three days of festivities, with music, dancing, cocktails, barbecues, card tournaments, a club history presentation and a very special bowling event to mark our 100 years, a 100-End game.

One hundred years ago, the Vancouver Park Board received a petition from 110 members of the newly established Stanley Park Lawn Bowling Club, asking that grounds be set aside in the park for a bowling green. An area was reserved in what was known then as the Elk Paddock, overlooking English Bay, and $1,300 was raised for the construction of a single green.

One hundred years later, on the very same site, the Stanley Park Lawn Bowling Club continues the tradition, and is stronger--and more popular--than ever. That's reason to celebrate!
