We have an enthusiastic and fun group of novices bowling on Tuesday Nights this season.However, we could use a few more experienced bowlers to fill out the games. Convenor is Neil Wilson.

In general, the novices lead and the more experienced players fill out the games. You don't need to do any coaching per se but your knowledge will help the games flow as a normal draw game would.

Also, a big thank-you for those already attending on a weekly basis, your help is greatly appreciated.
So join us next Tuesday, tags at 6:45 games at 7:00, where we put the FUN back in bowling fundamentals.


Attention all bowlers who have entered DRAWS or LEAGUE GAMES. Please return ALL TAGS to the respective TAG BOARDS ( men + women) at the conclusion of your games. This will eliminate confusion for the next DRAW or LEAGUE.


Wagdy Senbel has volunteered to assist with the SATURDAY and SUNDAY afternoon DRAWS. Those bowlers who wish to participate in these DRAWS will now require ONE LOONIE to compete and there will be FIRST + SECOND PRIZES awarded. This INFORMAL DRAW LEAGUE will commence  as of June 15th
