It is with great saddness to announce long time member,past president and club champion Ernie Rideout passed away on June 3, 2015 at the age of 97. Ernie was a regular bowler up until the past couple of years along with his wife Nancy whom he met here at the club. He was a man of immense talents and kindness we were lucky enough to call our friend.
We were saddened by the sudden death of long time club member Doreen Evans on February 10, 2011. Doreen along with Andrew Pappin won the club pairs championship this past August.
Doreen and her husband Graham hosted the club on their personal green for two years when our green was torn out and eventually replaced with the current synthetic surface. She will be greatly missed.
