This is late in the posting and almost isn't news, but Jon Braun has brought home to Kerrisdale its first ever National Championships medal and we have started at the top with Gold!

Jon and skip Jamie McGowan went 7-2 in the Round Robin to finish first overall. They then avenged a 12-14 first loss by defeating Alberta by a score of 18-14. The boys were actually in cruise control conceding a harmless 3 in the last end. This is great for the whole club and a pat on the back to our own ...

Busy Wednesday for Kerrisdale bowlers

It's been a busy Wednesday July 2nd for Kerrisdale bowlers - and a successful one.

The fun started at the inaugural V&D Junior Singles Championships in Tsawwassen. Our 13 year old Laurel Aveline was competing in her first singles tournament and she did very well. Her first match was a 5-3, 5-5 win over a local Tsawwassen boy and she followed that up with a 5-2, 3-3 win over another boy from Maple Ridge. That earned her a spot in the finals against Emma, a very good junior in the ...
