It’s been quite a year for bowlers in Canada.  With limited opportunities to travel lately, Mary and Mel Forster of Victoria, British Columbia sent some fond memories to share with the BiasedBowls Blog.   

In addition to visiting family and friends overseas, Mary and Mel enjoy a roll-up and a game or two at local bowling clubs when travelling abroad. They also enjoy capturing extraordinary signs and sights. While we’re all waiting to safely travel again, we can enjoy this montage of photos from their past lawn bowling tours.

Say no more! This club in New Zealand has a good sense of humor.
Obviously, bowls polish is a no-no on artificial surface, Queensland.
