The annual open tournament for tenderfoot players is on July 15 and 16. Members of a tenderfoot team must have started bowling in 2018 or later. Each team must have at least one novice.
There will be 4 games in total; 2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. Entry is $30 per team. Teams will be coming from our club and the other clubs in our district.
A sign up sheet has been posted in the sunroom. You may enter your own team or you may put your name down as wanting to play. Teams will be made up from those who have not formed their own team.
The tenderfoot tournament is a good way for those wanting to start playing at a higher degree of competition but may feel intimidated by the competition in other open tournaments. The tenderfoot is the only time you can play against bowlers of similar experience.
There will be coaching for all teams from our club who wish it. The coaching will touch on strategies for skips and what shots are best for different situations.
For more information you can call Kathleen Motley, Games Chair or Sandi Mitchell, Player Development.
Teams from around the zone, including Parksville will be playing in the McPherson Triples this weekend in Qualicum. Matches get underway at 10 A.M. & 1 P.M. Saturday, May 13 & 14th. See you on the green and good luck, Parksville.
The Triples league, which starts May 11, has only 4 teams signed up. A minimum of 6 teams is required, otherwise the league will be canceled.
The sign up sheet will be on the board until Thursday, May 3rd. Kate Wilson
