Updated April 2, 2018, with changed membership of the Website Committee.

There are three goals for the website

  • Inform members of club events;
  • Improve club operations; and
  • Attract new members to our club.

The site is managed by the Website Committee

The site is managed by a Website Committee. Brent Merchant, 1st Vice President of the club, chairs the Committee. Other Committee members are Garry Anderson, Eric Ballinger, Henriette Ballinger, Andrew Harley, Chris Slade.

If you have any suggestions or recommendations to improve the website, please contact a member of the Committee.

The Home Page is the starting point

2015 Canada Day 014

When you first log on to our website, you are presented with the Home page, which provides an introduction to first-time visitors, current information for members and links to detailed information on other pages of the website.

The top of the page identifies the website; below that is a green Navigation Bar with the names of the drop-down menus in white; next is a panoramic “slider” picture that changes every few seconds.

Below the slider, you will see a welcome/news banner that usually displays a reminder of an upcoming event. The banner is followed by three main columns:

  • About Us, which is intended for visitors to our site;
  • Latest News, which displays a blog of the latest news bulletins and a second blog, Bowling Abroad, about the international adventures of club members;
  • Upcoming Events, which lists the most important current events on our club calendar.

Beneath the News items, you will see a link that takes you to the entire sequence of news items. Similarly, below the Upcoming Events list, you will see a link that takes you to the calendar for the current month.

In the Footer at the very bottom of the page, there are more useful links.

You can always return to the Home page at any time by clicking on Home in the Navigation Bar or by clicking on our club’s logo in the upper left of every page.
