Youth bowling news

While not as exotic as a bowling trip to Sweden, Luci Ewen ventured north of the Malahat to participate in a provincial youth indoor bowling competition held at Qualicum Beach LBC, February 17 & 18. Although she did not finish in the prizes, Luci nevertheless gained valuable competitive experience while making friends of other young bowlers from across the province. Luci was coached the past two years by Jaymee Sidel, a well known club bowler and winner of many national and international awards, particularly at the junior level. Unfortunately for Oak Bay, Jaymee has moved out of town but with Luci filling her shoes as our brightest new young star, the future for youth bowling at Oak Bay is in good hands.

Details of the competition can be found here. Luci is at far left.

The Qualicum Beach LBC indoor facility, built in 2007, makes it the only club in North America to have both an outdoor and indoor facility. A recent photo shows their indoor facility.

Another British Columbia club which provides excellent indoor bowling is the Pacific Indoor Bowls Club in Vancouver.
