BCB needs your help. They are seeking people to fill board positions. You can read the Bowls Canada news release here.
Thirty two men and eleven women have signed up for the upcoming, and last, Canadian Open Singles gig. The “Open” format never gained much traction, in spite of attracting 30 ish players each year. It appears that more participation is not always “better”. Maybe the rap against the open format is that the very best bowlers do not attend (Team Canada mbrs)? Next year’s event will shine a contrasting light on the new format – a hybrid provincial representative system that provides greater opportunity for some provinces (as many as 4 entries), and not for others. Bravo to all of these Canadian Singles Champion aspirants.
Congratulations to Cameron Lefresne and Carah Webster – they are the 2017 Canadian U25 Champions. Bravo!
