Dartmouth and Halifax Nova Scotia to Co-host 2016 Canadian Senior Triples Championships

Nova Scotia | December 14, 2015

Bowls Canada Boulingrin is excited to announce that the Dartmouth Lawn Bowling Club and the Wanderers Lawn Bowling Club in Halifax, Nova Scotia will be the host of the 2016 Canadian Senior Triples Championships from August 25 to August 31, 2016. 

The Dartmouth Lawn Bowling Club is no stranger to hosting national events. Opening on August 15,1987, the club hosted the fours component of the Canadian Lawn Bowls Championships the very next day!  Dartmouth LBC is the largest club in Nova Scotia with 136 members and has an extended playing season due to the availability of an artificial turf green.  Many great bowlers have come from the Dartmouth LBC including current national team member, Jackie Foster.

The Wanderers Lawn Bowling Club in Halifax was founded in 1887, and remained active until the start of World War I.  In 1933, the club returned to action by recruiting members from the Mayflower Curling Club and play has continued uninterrupted ever since.  Wanderers LBC co-hosted the Canadian Championships in 1978 and continued its hosting with many other championships.  The 2015 Senior Triples champions — Steve Bezanson, Jack Robar and Doug McLearn — brought home the gold medal to the Wanderers’ club.

The Dartmouth and Halifax communities, volunteers and club members are looking forward to hosting a top notch championship for Canadian bowlers and are eager to welcome athletes from across the country.
