There are a variety of member events that are held throughout the season.
Monday evenings are generally for league play. Each week teams are selected by random draw based on the players' preferred positions. On completion of play for the evening, results are compiled and players' standings (within their respective positions of play) are calculated. At the end of the competitions (8 weeks each depending on scheduling), prizes are awarded to the top players by position.
Open draws are generally held most other days (except Thursdays). Members who show up to play put their names in for a draw to determine teams, positions and rinks and play proceeds from there. Social draws are scheduled periodically throughout the season, usually Fridays and Sundays. These tend to be the most casual gatherings and are often accompanied with food and/or refreshments. Sunday socials often include non-traditional bowling competitions to up the fun level.
There are also a number of tournaments for members each year. These competitions include singles (novice and experienced), pairs and triples. Winners names are engraved on plaques which are kept in the club trophy case.
Please see the Schedules page for more details.
The Ann & Helene Memorial Tournament is the KLBC's premiere annual open tournament, held at the end of August. It is open to teams of five players and features singles, doubles, triples and fours competitions spread over three days. Teams come from across BC and beyond to compete each year. Entry costs $200 per team and all entry fees are returned to the players in the form of prize money.
The tournament is named for two long-time members of the club, sisters Ann Paterson and Helene Hlokoff. The tournament is sponsored by members of their families in memory of these two dear ladies.
The exact dates for the 2022 Ann & Helene Memorial Tournament are still to be confirmed. The tentative dates are August 26 - 28 or August 27-29. Please check back periodically for the actual dates.
On the Lawn is an annual fund raising event held at the Kelowna Lawn Bowling Club to benefit Elevation Outdoors, an organization that provides outdoor sports and leadership programs for disadvantaged youth in the Central Okanagan. To date, On the Lawn has raised approximately $100,000 for Elevation Outdoors.
The 2022 edition of On the Lawn is scheduled for four consecutive Thursday evenings, July 21 - August 11.
