Canadian National Championships
Awesome Start by Devlin & Cayer for Québec
After the first four matches of a nine match round robin John and Gilles are 3W and 1L and are tied for the lead with NS, AB & ON-B.
On Wednesday they had wins against MB (18-12) and ON-B (21-9) losing to AB (15-23) in the last of the day. Today they started with a win against NB (22-5).
This afternoon they are matched against ON-B for a critical game which will likely break the tie.
Bowls is a strategic, challenging and fun sport that can be enjoyed by anyone. It is played on a large smooth grass surface called a “green”. Lawn bowls are large, hard resin balls with a bias to them, so that they travel along an elliptical path, rather than going straight. The object of the game is to roll your bowls closer to the target than your opponents. The target is a small white ball called a “jack”. The jack is rolled the length of the green to start each end. Players from each team taking turns rolling their bowls down the green toward the jack until all the bowls have been played.
Bowls involves offensive and defensive strategy. An added challenge is the Jack or target may be displaced within the confines of the rink by the movement of any bowl.
