Hello Juan de Fuca Bowlers,
As we know our club is hosting the B.C Provincial Singles Championships from July 5th to 7th.
Kitchen A will be providing our standard coffee, tea and treats service along with a simple “sandwich of the day” special.
The numbers for this event look to be relatively small, probably no more than 50 participants and volunteers all told. A few great volunteers are needed to once again show our JDF Hospitality at it’s best!
Sandi is planning for 2 shifts per day (morning and afternoon), each with 2 Kitchen-A volunteers for both July 5th and 6th and only 1 shift (morning) for the 7th .
So, this means a total of 4 volunteers per day for Friday and Saturday and only 2 for Sunday.
Also, Sandi will be asking for a member to take the lead for the weekend as she will be away. Most of the planning and shopping will be done ahead of time, so this will just be an onsite role.
Please let Sandi know if you can volunteer by calling or texting her at 250-589-5609 or email or
Thanks everyone!!

P.S. It’s a great time to get baking and shopping as we will need to refill our freezers for the weekend.

Hi folks,

I was approached recently by a few people regarding my use of the Obi bowling Launcher.

The launcher was created to assist people deliver bowls that may have knee, hip or back issues. I have been using the launcher for the last 2 years and it has certainly helped my knees and my score ha ha ha.  I was wondering if anyone would like me to provide a demo and lesson with tips about using the launcher device.  I understand that the club has 6 launchers available that may be borrowed to give it a try.

 I will be staying after Sunday Cutthroat around noon on June 9th if anyone would like a quick demo/lesson.

Please let me know if you would be interested at .  I could also arrange another time if Sunday would not work.

All the best,

Hello Juan de Fuca bowlers!

Our first event of this new season, The Galleon Cup, is scheduled for May 18th and 19th, so it’s time to fill trays of goodies for participants and guests.

As in past years, baking, goodies and contributions from our club members are most welcome!


A few ideas to consider;

Muffins-mini muffins

Sweet breads-banana, etc.

Cakes and squares-coffee cakes, bundt’s, brownies, etc.


Mini croissants and mini donuts

Raisin Bread


Please keep in mind that if you are not a baker or just don’t have the time, there are many great treats available in grocery stores and bakeries these days that are very much enjoyed by everyone.

If you are able to donate for this event, please deliver your goodies to Kitchen A by Friday May 17th.

It’s really helpful to have the date the item was baked or dropped off along with your name on the container. There will be labels, tape and pens on the counter by the kitchen door. Items can then be left on the counter or in one of the fridges.

Thanks everyone and if you have any questions or want to connect please contact Sandi at

It means you will be able to fill out the form online and send it back to me. No more downloading, no more printing and filling it out manually and no more saving or scanning in order to send it back.

Of course any member who does not feel comfortable doing it this way, will still have the option to print the form and fill it out manually and we will always have forms available when you come down to register at one of our Open Houses.

I will be sending out a follow up email next week with the link and instructions to the “Online Membership Form”.

Lockers: Our locker rental fees remain unchanged this year at $20.00. If you currently have a locker and have decided you do “NOT” want it anymore, please advise Joanne Scarbro at as there is currently a waitlist. Also advise Joanne if you don’t have a locker and would like one and she will add you to the waitlist.

·         Step 1: Sign into online or mobile banking and look for the Interac e-Transfer option.
