The bowling greens of Mid Canterbury will come to life following winter hibernation this weekend with a number of the seven local clubs opening their gates for the first time for the new season on Saturday.
Despite the presence of winter bowls, largely at Allenton on the artificial green during the winter, it’s been a quiet off season but things hook right into full swing at the weekend and pretty quickly the season builds its way up to full momentum.
Ashburton-based clubs Allenton, Hampstead and the Ashburton MSA will welcome members back onto the greens on Saturday . . .
