New York Lawn Bowling Club Events
On a smashing late October day six NYLBC bowlers and a modest entourage journeyed to Bloomfield New Jersey for an afternoon of bowling at the Essex Lawn Bowling Club. Situated in Bloomfield's lovely Watsessing Park and featuring one of the Northeast's finest (artificial) greens the bowlers held two games - a doubles match and cutthroat contest. Barry Kessler won the closely contested cutthroat game and the team of Les Winter (lead) and Alex Last (skip) did likewise in the doubles. With shadows falling long, the homeward journey was filled with talk of "When should we do this next?"
Labor Day 2023 Holiday Weekend
The weather was dandy, the greens running fast and members eager for a long weekend's worth of lawn sports combined to create a wonderful Labor Day 2023 celebration on the greens in Central Park. In addition to full rosters of bowling and croquet the weekend concluded with a joint New York Lawn Bowling and Croquet Clubs picnic barbeque.
Pre-Season Greens Clean-Up
Each year the New York Lawn Bowling Club works with the Central Park Conservancy to prepare the greens and surrounding area for the opening of the season. For 2022 we had a record turnout of members volunteering!
A beautiful early May Saturday obliged us for the 2022 Opening Day with almost 40 members joining in the bowling and picnic festivities. In addition to members of all ages a number of children joined in the fun along with two cute and cuddly pooches.
