(by Jackie Tucker) The Asheville Lawn Bowls club just opened their new artificial lawn bowls green. Jackie & George Tucker took the trip to bowl on their new greens. The greens were rolling about 18 seconds and were very true. What a delight. After bowling, Sarah and Terry Reincke hosted a club supper with the members and us as their guests. I highly recommend a stop in Asheville, NC to see and bowl on these greens. The fall foliage will be starting in a few weeks and adds extra viewing when traveling through the mountains. Pinehurst Lawn Bowls Club hopes to start a new tradition with “Home and Away” tournaments. Asheville players are great ambassadors for the game of Bowls and we truly had a wonderful time and enjoyed the True Draw greens.
Asheville being very creative, Joe Parks redesigned the model from the Sun City, AZ design and developed this rake concept for use at their club. It comes apart at the handle for easy storage and was very reasonable to make. The club members then helped with the assembly of the rakes for use on their greens. We have so much talent in our sport and this is just one example.
