Grand Mixed Bonspiel.
This year’s Grand Mixed Bonspiel will take us to Italy on April 17th and 18th! A great way to have fun and meet new people, the Grand Mixed includes three six-end games for only $65+ tax. Eye openers, lunch and dinner on the 18th are included. This year’s theme is Italian style and food. The Grand Mixed is a great opportunity to get in a few more games during the playoffs. The draw times are:
Friday night : 6:30 p.m., 8:00 a.m. and 9:45 p.m.
Saturday morning : 8:30 a.m., 10:00 a.m. and 11:45 a.m.
Saturday afternoon: 1:15 p.m., 3:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Following a great Italian dinner, everyone visits the prize table before dancing the night away. Sign-up sheets are at the club.

High Park Club History.
A book covering the founding years and the challenges of starting a club and keeping it alive in its infancy.was published and is available from the pro shop. A book chronicling the first 50 years is in the draft phase and will be published in the near future. Oodles of information for the second 50 years has been collected. We are still collecting more information. We hope that members will have material to contribute whether it is articles, photographs, memorabilia or anecdotes. Especially details on how the tennis section got started and the challenges in switching from lawn bowling to tennis.
