Following is a message from Dale Kidd at Lawn Bowls NS:
Congratulations to Lena Cameron and Patti Granville for bringing home the silver medal in the women's pairs from the Canadian Championships in Victoria, and to Steve Ogden, Steve Bezanson and Mike Hadley for securing bronze in the men's triples. The entire 24-member strong Nova Scotia team represented all lawn bowlers in this province well, on and off the green.
I encourage newer bowlers to consider entering club tournaments and provincial tournaments going forward. Playing against experienced players is the best way to improve your game and sharpen your skills. Nova Scotia has a distinguished record at the national level - we punch above our weight class compared to bigger provinces - but we need the pipeline of talent continually flowing. It was good to see new faces competing at the recent Clarke and Robar tournaments, especially the juniors. And it was good to see so many new bowlers of all ages displaying great potential. The more you play the more confidence you gain.
Congratulations also to Debbie Foster, Anita Knox and Valerie Bechard for claiming bronze at the recent Canadian Senior Triples in Peterborough, and to 'world-class bowler' Steve Bezanson, Doug McLearn and myself, for capturing gold.
The Conditions of Play Committee will consist of Jackie Foster (chair), Ruth Bowman and Paul Knox. Their task is to update and upgrade our Conditions of Play by Spring 2018.
Good things are happening in our sport - Cobequid LBC under the leadership of Helen Brightman bit the bullet earlier this summer on refurbishing its green which is now receiving rave reviews from all bowlers; Wanderers LBC under the leadership of Mark Singer invites companies and groups to sample bowling on a regular basis and has increased its membership by 300 per cent in the last two years to now sit at approximately 130 members; Dartmouth LBC under the guidance of Charmaine Cameron along with joint Juniors chairpersons Ann Marie Siteman and Lena Cameron and their committee put on an exceptional national junior championship; Bedford LBC and Bridgetown LBC continue to be the only clubs in the province who deliver young bowlers to our sport through junior programs; and St. Mary's LBC continues to be the home for the successful Lawn Summer Nights, a charity for Cystic Fibrosis.
The LBNS Awards Night will take place on Saturday, Oct 14 at Riverside Pub & Grille, 1552 Bedford Highway (above Sunnyside Restaurant) at 5:30 - 6p.m., and the AGM will take place Sunday, Oct. 15 at 1p.m. at Bedford LBC.
Good luck to Terry O'Neil and John Siteman currently playing at the Canadian Outdoor Singles in Winnipeg, and to Team NS heading off to compete in the Atlantic Bowls in Montreal.
Enjoy fall bowling everyone,
