Goderich Lawn Bowling Folds
The Goderich Lawn Bowling Club is folding.
President Kevin Rumig estimates they had over 100 members years ago when they had a double green.
But that’s now dropped to seven members and it’s not enough membership to cover maintenance of the green and the various other expenses.
He says, “We tried for a long to to build it up a little bit, but just couldn’t seem to get the people to come out and the older ones were, unfortunately , not able to bowl anymore.”
Rumig says it’s a difficult decision because the Goderich Lawn Bowling Club is over 100 years old.
Rumig adds the members that still want to bowl will be able to go to neighbouring clubs.
