During this time he was selected to play both in Round Robin and also Prestige Medley events for Region 6/Eastern division. He became Club Coach, a position he held for many years assisting new bowlers in the sport. He was aslo the Club President from 1981 till 1991 having previously been on the management committee for several years.

Lyn was awarded Life Membership of the Lameroo club in 2014. He became an umpire in 1984 and continued rising to the status of an ITO joining as a member of the State umpires committee. During this time he officiated as an umpire and marker for World Bowls, Regional and Association events. Lyn was also an Association and Regional Selector having a keen eye for excellence.
