CRACKER JACK MIXED TRIPLES

On Saturday August 13th, we had 16 teams of Mixed Triples come out to enjoy the game of Cracker Jack. This is a fun game that Jim & Sharon Ward brought back from Sun City to our Club, and it has been a hit

ever since. The hardest part of the game is now finding the actual Cracker Jacks!

A huge thank you to Allan Atkinson for finding 50 individual packages of Cracker Jacks in Duncan. And as an even bigger thank you Allan’s name was drawn for the 1st prize of $108.50 in the 50/50. Chuck Authier won the 2nd prize in the 50/50, a humongous box of Cracker Jacks!

First Place Team & Trophy Winners: Gerry Thomas/Bill Leach, Ed Sanders, Lynda Bell

Second Place:           Arne van Klaveren, John Stonehouse/Brenda Thompson, Judy Favell

Third Place:               Brenda/Wayne Edwards, Peter Carvell, Hensley Boyd

Also, Congratulations to Judy Patts, our runner up for 2022. Well done to both of you and all others who participated, I hope you all enjoyed the experience. We had 5 members participate in the Novice Championship this year, Diane Whatling, Judy Patts, Andrea Duncan, Bev Caird, and Joanne Cowan.

A huge thank you to all the Coaches and Markers who came out to support the Ladies in the Chanpionship as well as all the fans who came to cheer them on. The participants were thrilled and humbled by the turnout, well done JDF LBC members for all your support.

So, if you have nothing planned for the weekend of August 20th & 21st, head out to Sidney LBC and give Diane some of that JDF support. Go Diane Go 👍👏👌🥇


WOMEN’S CLUB SINGLES CHAMPIONSHIP 2022

Confirmed dates September 19 to 23

 My original thought was to have members sign up and then we would plan the playoff dates according to how many entries we received. I since found out that several members were hesitant to sign up because they didn’t know if the playoff dates would conflict with their other plans. I met with the other women on the Games Committee, and we decided that since the early part of September is already so busy with various tournaments and the Seniors Games, that we would wait and run the Women’s Club Singles Championship between September 19 and 23.

If you are interested in competing in our Women’s Club Singles Championship, please sign up at the clubhouse, or send an email to jdflbctournaments2@shaw.ca , an updated poster will be placed on the board at the clubhouse on Saturday.

Entries must be received by end of day, Monday, September 12th.

Round robin or knockout format will be decided once we know how many members are participating. Games will be first player to 15 points, or 90 minute time limit, whichever comes first.

If you have any questions, please contact Wendy Leach at jdflbctournaments2@shaw.ca or by phone (refer to Member’s Contact List under Members & Admin)

DOLLAR SPOTTING

Please note that our Greens have been hit with ‘Dollar Spotting’ also known as the fungus ‘Clarireedia Jacksonii’ this is the reason D green has been closed, A, B & C are also slightly infected.

This fungus is not uncommon and affects our greens most years but not usually this early and is caused by low nighttime temperatures and dew dampness and if it seriously takes hold the greens could be in jeopardy.

All greens have been treated accordingly and D green will reopen Friday June 17, however it can be commonly spread by shoes from contact with other bowling club or golf course greens, therefore  as a precaution we are requiring everyone who comes to bowl to spray their shoes with spray detergent and use the shoe cleaning machine, both are located at the left side clubhouse door, this is MANDATORY for everyone who comes to bowl at JDF LBC.

It will be the responsibility of all members to comply and for BSI Coordinators to inform all league participants accordingly. Please do your part to protect our greens, your cooperation is required and necessary.
