Today over 60 bowlers turned out to open the season Although it was damp and cold.

The National Anthem was sung round the flag followed by a Piper leading the members round the surrounds of the green. Mayor of Maple Ridge, Mike Morton delivered an excellent first bowl to start the season off. He even surprised himself.

Owing to the weather, the teams played 8 ends of the Yard Stick fun game but finished off the day by the members enjoying a Pot Luck Supper.
