Bowls Canada Boulingrin has published the selection criteria for the 2016 North American Challenge being held in Vancouver, BC at the end of September. The selection criteria is available through the BCB website at:  http://bit.ly/1Y3ytMw

The purpose of the 2016 North American Challenge (NAC) selection process is to select a men’s and women’s team of 10 athletes each and to provide the selected athletes with an opportunity to experience international competition and potentially achieve podium success.  The events for consideration will be the same for both men and women:  Singles, Pairs, Triples, and Fours.

The NAC is a biannual challenge match between the high performance teams of USA Bowls and Bowls Canada.  Each nation will field ten men and ten women who will be divided into two five-member squads.  The squads are named Folkins and Jarvis in honour of bowling legends Graham Jarvis (Canada) and Dick Folkins (USA). The event is played over a three day period with two days of pre-event practice. The 2016 competition dates are September 29 to October 1.
