Sidels in Oz

Jaymee and I have headed down under to participate in the 2017 Australian Open – YES, you read correctly I am also bowling in this tournament which takes place on the Gold Coast from June 10th – 23rd. We make up half of the women’s team.  Our partners are Shawna Bell from Kamloops and Anne Marie Siteman from Nova Scotia.

The men’s team consists of Shawna’s husband Alex, Anne Marie’s son John, along with Paul and Keith also from Nova Scotia. Just to clarify – we are Canadians playing as a team but we are not representing Bowls Canada.

We, plus Jaymee’s boyfriend Nathaniel, started our journey on May 31st and would like to share our experience with you in a daily blog. Check out this website http://australianopen.bowlsaustralia.com.au/ for more information on the tournament and results.  Not sure how well we’ll fare against the rest of the world teams but we will have lots of good old Canadian Fun!
