Hosts Named for the 2023 Canadian Senior Triples Championships and Para-Bowls Championships
Ottawa, ON | December 14th, 2022
Two national championships are headed to Alberta for the 2023 season: the Canadian Senior Triples Championships and the Canadian Para-Bowls Championships
The second edition of the Canadian Para-Bowls Championships will take place in Calgary, Alberta after the inaugural event took place in Windsor in 2022. The event is open to any bowler in Canada who belongs to an affiliated club and has either a visual or physical impairment. After witnessing the first event as an official, Dwayne Hauck is confident that Stanley Park LBC can build on what Windsor started, “Stanley Park will continue to build on the momentum of the 2022 Championships that Windsor hosted. Another years’ experience will ensure more athletes and an ever-increasing level of performance.” Stanley Park hosts biweekly Para competitions, which will ensure both athletes and volunteers alike are ready to host the event. Hauck said that players coming to Calgary can expect “great competition, fast greens, keen motivated volunteers and officials. But mostly just good old Western hospitality.”
The facility at Stanley Park in Calgary is an outdoor design, allowing participants and spectators to enjoy the event in an open-air environment. After the great flood of 2013 which left both green and clubhouse underwater, the sand left behind from the river actually improved the green, meaning participants can expect a top-notch surface to play on come July.
The dates are tentatively set for classification on July 24th, followed by practice day on July 25th with sectional/round robin play the 26th – 29th. An optional rain date is schedule for July 30th, so participants are encouraged to book flexible flights/accommodations.
The Canadian Senior Triples Championships will take place at the Commonwealth LBC, which has hosted numerous national and even an international competition in the past. Members of the host organizing committee, Joy White, Brian and Debbie Ranger, said “Preparations have already begun to make this event as special as the people who participate in it. All of the clubs in Edmonton will be contributing their talents, volunteer time and hospitality to ensure this event is a success. Albertans are famous for their hospitality and participants at this event will experience that first hand: each of the Edmonton clubs are planning to provide a warm western welcome by hosting social events each evening. Participants will also get to join in the festivities of the Royal Lawn Bowling Club’s 100th anniversary celebration!”
The Commonwealth Lawn Bowling Club is one of three facilities in Canada to boast four greens; a legacy from hosting the 1978 Commonwealth Games. Queen Elizabeth herself stood on the balcony to watch the Games, and spectators at the 2023 Senior Triples Championships can enjoy a similar view from the Royal balcony.
As the official awards and recognition supplier for BCB, Nothers The Award Store will provide all medals and awards for the event.
