The other two bowlers going to the provincial tournament will be bowling in the Bantam singles event. The Bantam division is for youth up to 10 years old. Winning their zone round were Teagan Hogg for the girls and Boston Sandnes for the boys. This will be a special time for these two bowlers as it’s their first time at a major tournament.

The Seniors event will be held at Capri Lanes in Kelowna and the Bantam singles will roll out at Lincoln Lanes in Vernon.

The bowling is a two-day event with 5 games bowled each day. The format is match-play where the competitors bowl each of the other five zones twice with one point for a win and a half point for a tie.

Winners of the provincials will represent B.C. at the National championships to be held in Calgary, May 3-5.
