For more years than many of us can remember the lovely setting that is Wright Park in Tacoma, Washington has been without the swish nor swoosh of Lawn Bowls upon the green. That appears to no longer be the case and if the group shown in the photo is any indication enthusiasm abounds and Bowls are rolling again.
Any chance of keeping our clubs alive and flourishing has to be embraced and followed up on.
We welcome you back Tacoma we hope you will join the Northwest Division of Bowls USA and receive all the benefits, advice and all round good companionship we have to offer.
While we have had some recent successes in various parts of the country with new greens being built, others revived, we still have a continuing decline In clubs. The Southwest has been fighting hard, and has won some important battles, but with the abandonment of Lake Hodges and the decline of San Clemente, there is much more work to do.
All our efforts must be directed more to the needs of those in trouble, while in turn they need to reach out to us, Bowls USA for any help, if only encouragement, that we can offer.
