The Regina Lawn Bowling Club relies on members to volunteer for various tasks during the season to ensure it maintains itself as a viable organization. The more support we receive from our members, the less stressful and demanding is the time and commitment made by others. All volunteers will receive direction and instructions from the director in charge.
The following is a brief description of the various areas where volunteers are required:
Ditch Guy - Individuals are needed to clean the ditches of weeds, leaves, tree seeds, grass and garbage. Depending on the volume and what it is, you may have to bag them. The cleaning is done as needed. The sand should be leveled once completed and periodically as needed. One person is needed for each green.
Grass Cutter - Individuals are needed to cut the grass on the grounds using a riding mower or a push mower. A weed wacker is used to edge around the backboards, light standards, sprinkler heads, bushes, trees and fence lines. You do this once every three weeks as part of a three member crew.
Plug Remover - Individuals are needed every time the greens are aerated to rake and remove the plugs from the greens. Greens are aerated once or twice a year.
Top Dresser - Individuals are required after aerating to top dress the greens. Tasks included loading the sand on to the gator and others to spread the sand on the greens.
Weed Picker - Individuals are required throughout the year to pick and bag weeds on the grounds. Ask the Grounds Director what needs to be done.
Grounds Assistant - Individuals are required to assist with various maintenance and cleanup activities on the grounds. These activities will be coordinated and supervised by the Grounds Director.
Tarping Assistant - Our greens are tarped in the fall and removed in the spring. Individuals are needed to assist with putting on the tarps and removing them usually in one day in the fall and spring. In the fall the tasks are moving the tarps from storage to the greens, rolling them out and staking them in place. Some easier tasks in the fall are cutting ribbons and tying the ribbons on the stakes. In the spring the tasks include removing the stakes, storing the stakes, rolling up the tarps, transporting the tarps to the storage area and storing them.
