Australian Pairs

Australian Pair

Each Wednesday and Thursday - Starting June 6th/7th 2018

Playoff for qualified players will be

September 1st at 9:30am

Australian Pairs differs from regular pairs bowling in that each bowler alternates with his/her team mate from Skip to lead. Games are 10 ends long, and each player has four bowls.

On the odd ends:
  • - player A on each team plays 2 bowls;
  • - player B plays all 4 bowls;
  • - then player A plays the remaining 2 bowls.
  • On the even ends, things are reversed:
  • - player B plays 2 bowls;
  • - player A plays all 4 bowls;
  • - then player B plays the remaining 2 bowls.
  • The league year is divided up into four 4-week-long months - June, July, August and 3-week-long September. Scores are kept for each individual, and added up to select the winner for each month.

    Teams are chosen by a random shuffling of the names of the people registered for the league. So there's a pretty good chance of having a different partner each week of the month. The four monthly winners will play off to determine the Australian Pairs Champion.

    Gunn Tac Triples

    Gunn Tac Triples

    Saturday June 2nd 2018 at 9:30am

    The Gunn Tac trophy was donated by Dorothy Louie, a Royal member during the 1990s. She dedicated it to her good friend Gunn Tak who loved to play triples.

    This year, in this tournament, we are trying the new format from Bowls Canada.
    This is 2 bowl triples where each player gets to roll only Two bowls each end.
    It is an attempt to speed up the game. You will keep the same team through the whole game
    We will play 3 - 12 end games, with the draw at 9:30, with play commencing as soon as everything is ready.

    We stop for our "bring-your-own" lunch after the second game. Coffee, tea, cool drinks and cookies are provided by the Club.

    There is no entry fee, but the 1st place team will be immortalized on our Tournament Trophy and other prizes as well.

    Maximum players: 42 Minimum: 6

    Winner's tally:
  • - first by total game points (win=2, tie=1, loss=0)
  • - then by total number of ends won
  • - then by total aggregate score (your score minus opponent's score)

    Interclub "Crazy Bowl"

    Crazy Bowl

    Sunday June 24th 2018 9:30am

    Highlands and Commonwealth members are invited to this event (first-come, first-served).

    It's "crazy" because different non-conventional rules are used in scoring each end. For example, bowls to the left of the jack might be excluded from the count in the fifth end. Or a coin might be flipped to either double the second end score, or change it to zero. Lots of fun!

    Participants will play three 6-end games with the same team. If people want to share positions on a team ie. play 1 or 2 games not all, this will be allowed. Teams are chosen at 9:45am. The first game starts at 10:00am. Bring your own lunch. Coffee, tea, cool drinks and snack-food are provided by the Club.

    There is no entry fee. Maximum players: 42 Minimum: 6 Individual players accepted 6 at a time (6 players per game).

    First come, first served - so be sure to register early to be certain to play! The winning team will be determined by total game points (win=2, tie=1, loss=0). In the event of ties between teams, there will be a "spider" bowl-off amongst opposing skips.
