Bowlers from across Ontario will be competing for the opportunity of being crowned the Ontario Novice Triples Lawn Bowling Champions at the Sarnia Lawn Bowling Club in early September.
16 Men’s and 16 Women’s teams of three from across Ontario (96 bowlers) will meet in Sarnia for two days of intense competition in a sport which requires the perfect combination of accuracy and strategy. Novice bowlers are those who have bowled for less than five years.
The event will be held at the Sarnia Lawn Bowling Club in Germain Park (off Bright Street) the weekend of Sept. 5-7. A welcome reception and practice will take place on Sept. 5, with the official opening ceremonies on Sept. 6 at 8 a.m. Competition continues throughout the day on Sept. 6 and 7, and spectators are welcome at no charge.Sarnia could have two teams, one ladies’ and one men’s team, representing District 2 at the provincials. The district representatives will be determined at the District Playdowns on Aug. 16 in London.
“The Sarnia Lawn Bowling Club has been hosting bowlers from across Canada for over 100 years and we are honoured to be hosting the Ontario Novice Triples Lawn Bowling Championships this year. The greens are in prime condition and our host committee is extremely excited and ready to welcome the bowlers,” said Dave Moffitt, president of the Sarnia Lawn Bowling Club.
“We are incredibly fortunate and grateful to have such dedicated volunteers from the Sarnia Lawn Bowling Club and honoured to once again have the opportunity to showcase our community. Sarnia-Lambton has a great history of hosting successful International, National and Provincial events, and this will be no different”, said Vicky Praill, Special Events and Group Marketing Co-ordinator for Tourism Sarnia Lambton.
