Re: the possible closure of the Savoy bowling lanes.
I would like to include my voice with the people who have written concerned about the possible closure of Savoy Lanes.
I am over 80 and have been bowling and representing Savoy Lanes at the Seniors’ Games for many years. These tournaments are not only for the “good” bowlers. If you have a low average and are able to just “make your average,” you are an asset to any team! Or if you are only interested in bowling for the social aspect, we will welcome you. I am sure you will have fun and of course, you will get that bit of exercise, too.
We are fairly new residents of Nelson and as such, have joined several different sports activities. One of the reasons we moved to Nelson was because these sports including bowling. We have really enjoyed our bowling time. We have been able to join some of the private tournaments which were unaffected by the financial inability of Savoy Lanes to join BC Bowl this year. We are hoping arrangements are made over the summer to allow us to resume our leagues in September.
