Reminders from the Games Chair- Jack Moores (April 2024)

 

Welcome to the Tsawwassen Lawn Bowling Club, we hope you enjoy the sport of lawn bowling. Feel free to ask members for advice, hopefully you will join some of our bowling events and attend social activities with our friendly members.   Below you will find descriptions of procedures and events the Games Committee is offering this year.

 

WHAT IS A DRAW?

Many bowling events are organized using a draw procedure.  Bowlers are ranked according to ability and name tags are displayed on the club’s magnetic name tag board (blue-Novice, yellow-Seconds, Green-thirds and Red-Skips).  Games Committee convenors endeavor to organize competing teams with the same ability.  Bowler’s names are called, they select a poker chip from a bag and this indicated the colour of their team (red or white) and the lane they are playing on (number 1 to 8).

 

HOW DO I JOIN A SCHEDULED DRAW? (1PM and 6:30PM)

When you arrive at the green, place your name tag on the table used to organize the draw.

 

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to start time in order that the draw can be completed and games can begin on time.  The draw will not be reorganized for late comers, unless including them helps the improve the draw. 

 

The organizer (convenor) will indicate how many lanes should be set up, please help set up the equipment in the desired lanes.  To avoid the sun interfering with the game the 1 PM draw is set up in an east – west direction, the 6:30 draw in a north – south direction.

 

Once you have drawn your poker chip, return your name tag to the board, then report with your poker chip which indicates your team (red or white) and your assigned lane number (1-8).  Assemble your team (give poker chips to your skip) and enjoy your game.

 

Once the game is complete members are asked to assist in returning equipment to the equipment room and poker chips to the name tag table.

 

HOW DOES AN AGGREGATE WORK?

An aggregate is an event that runs for 6 or 8 weeks on a specified day and time.  Each week bowlers are organized into teams (a draw) and points are awarded and a running total kept. There is an up-front charge of $5.00 or a charge of $1.00 per day.  Prizes are awarded on the last day and vary depending on the number participating.  This year we are offering four aggregates- Cutthroat, Pairs, Triples and Yard Stick. 

 

Cutthroat - There will be two groups, one group of Skips and Thirds and a second group of Seconds and Leads.  This will facilitate players only playing against like ranked players in groups of 3 or 4 depending on number of entries.  The scoring will be the player’s accumulated score for games played and a calculated average score issued by convenors for weeks missed.  $5.00 entry fee for 8 weeks.

 

Pairs and Triples –Each day a random draw is conducted for the bowlers attending and points are awarded: 3 points for a win, 2 points for a tie, 1 point for a loss.  Each bowler’s results are tracked for each day the bowler attends.  The entry fee is $1.00 for each day a bowler plays.

 

Yard Stick Game-Bowlers are awarded points for every bowl they have that is a yard or less from the jack.  The scoring will be the player’s accumulated score for games played and a calculated average score issued by convenors for weeks missed.  $5.00 entry fee for the 6 weeks.

TSAWWASSEN SUN FESTIVAL Saturday August 5th:

Each year TLBC hosts the Tsawwassen Sun Festival Mixed Triples Tournament and this year we were thrilled to host their 5th annual tournament on our new artificial green and in the new Winskill Park Field House.

Sixteen teams of 48 men and women from Ladner, Richmond, White Rock, New Westminster, Maple Ridge and Tsawwassen participated.  Each team played 4 games.   Richmond Lawn Bowling Club, captained by Paul Choi, won the event and received the first-place prize money and the coveted Sunfest Trophy.  Tsawwassen Lawn Bowling Club team comprised of Ralph Walker, Laurie Fredricksen and Betty Cooper won prize money by finishing fourth.

 

DELTA SERVICE CLUBS LAWN BOWLING TOURNAMENT Sunday August 16th.

TLBC also hosted a Sun Festival fun mini-tournament for South Delta service clubs; Lions, Rotary, TOOB, Ladner Legion, Masons and SunFest volunteers.  Each Club sent one or two triples’ teams to play in the tournament.  Each team played two (or three) four end games.  Before the games started, TLBC volunteers gave them a very short lesson on how to deliver the jack, the bowls and supervised the games, scoring etc.  Ladner Legion won the event and all the teams vowed to return next year to try to claim the trophy.

Then all of the competitors and the TLBC volunteers were invited to the TOOB food tent next to the Aquatic Center to receive a free meal and a free beverage ticket.  It was a fun event where participants got the opportunity to socialize with members of the Delta community
