Jean Olsen

The lawn bowling community in Elora and District 7 has lost a great friend with the passing of Jean Olsen after a brief but courageous battle with cancer.

Jean was a long time member of Elora Rocks Lawn Bowling Club. She shared her passion and enthusiam for the sport by volunteering her time to coach new players. A huge supporter of the Elora Rocks LBC, Jean was a class act on and off the greens. The sport has definitely lost a fantastic person and a great friend.

Our condolences go to Jean’s family at this difficult time.

Obituary for Jean Olsen (MacLeod)

Welcome to the Elora Rocks Bowling Club. Since 1906 our members have been enjoying competitive lawn bowling and having great fun doing it. Our wonderful greens and facilities are at 74 David Street East in Elora.

Lawn bowling is a sport that can be enjoyed by all ages. It is a sport that you can start at any age, and it is never too late to take up the game.

We bowl from May to September. On Tuesdays and Thursdays we have league play – players are teamed in pairs for the season, with novices matched to more experienced players. On Mondays we have jitneys – just turn up and teams are made up at random. On Wednesdays we play 4-3-2-1, a game in which three players face off in a friendly battle for proximity to the “jack”. We also hold a number of tournaments during the season which are open to any bowler affiliated to the Ontario Lawn Bowls Association.
