CLUB ACTIVITIES

The club hosts eight annual tournaments for members and invited guests. It sponsors two invitational tournaments (Don Goodrich Senior Triples and Sun City Mix or Match Triples) each year that are open to members of other clubs from the Southwest Division of Bowls USA. It is a participating club in the Southwest Division's Vet/Novice Doubles tournament. Beginning in 2010, it also hosts the Jack Morgan Mixed Five, an event open to members of the Southwest's Citrus District clubs (Hemet, Pomona, Redlands, Riverside and Sun City).

OTHER ACTIVITIES
VISITATIONS We maintain friendly competition with other clubs in the area, exchanging visitations with Hemet, Redlands, Riverside, San Diego and occasionally others. The visitations typically involve one or two 12-end games, and the host club sometimes provides lunch/dinner or other treats.
SPECIAL GAMES Special games with food and prizes will be scheduled throughout the year. They typically have a $5.00 entry fee per bowler, part of which goes into the prize fund - lunch may be included. Non-bowlers will typically pay the entry fee.
BIRTHDAYS We recognize member birthdays with ice cream and cake on one bowling day each month, typically the second Tuesday. We usually bowl six ends, break for treats and then complete the games.
DINING OUT Club members dine out together at local restaurants once each month, typically the fourth Thursday.
MOCKTAIL PARTIES We invite members and those interested in learning about bowls to these social events.
