Blind Provincial Championships
McArthur Park Lawn Bowling Club, Kamloops, BC
Four Nanaimo visually impaired bowlers accompanied by two directors travelled to Kamloops in 2013 for an invitational tournament.
Each pair played 3 games.
The Nanaimo pair of Dave Ruckman skip and Randy Fred lead went undefeated and won 1st prize.
Tshepo Raditladi ( Nan ) played lead with Charles from Kamloops.
They had a record of 2 wins and 1 loss ( losing only to Dave & Randy ) and claimed 3rd prize.
Jay Gatley (Nanaimo) played lead with Kay Miller of Kamloops. Their record was 1 win and 2 losses and they placed 4th.
Also, skip Al Hanet of Kelowna and lead Eugene Amburg of Burnaby place 2nd with 2 wins and 1 loss.
The tournament was played at McArthur Park.
They have 8 visually impaired bowlers and for most of them this was their first opportunity to play against low vision players from around the province.
The club had many volunteers to act as directors and markers. The kitchen staff provided a delicious chili lunch as well as nutritious snacks throughout the day.
Maureen Hickey was the tournament organizer and did a superb job.
Thank you to David Burns and Donn Sherry who accompanied the Nanaimo bowlers.
Thanks to BC Blind Sports who coordinated the event and provided accommodations and transportation for the out of town participants.
