Canadian Indoor Championship comes to a close

Category : News Item 2018

A huge congratulations to the players from BC that swept the medals at the Canadian Indoor Championship held last week at Pacific Indoor Lawn Bowls Club.  Three of our AB players that participated, Jan Robinson, Claire Day and Greg Wilson, have been there several times and they all finished in the middle of the field. Two others, Pauline Wong and Mike O’Reilly were there for the first time and they discovered the challenge and the enjoyment of playing on the indoor carpet.

Thank you to our AB players for toughing it out against the home ‘court’ players and for some great games!  We are proud of your accomplishments.
