Ladner Lawn Bowls Event
On Tuesday, July 23 Ladner Lawn Bowling Club hosted
12 visually impaired bowlers from various clubs in the province. Clubs
represented were Burnaby, Coquitlam, Kelowna, Victoria, Nanaimo and Ladner.
We played Pairs with each team playing 2 ten end games. Two of the 6 teams
won both their games. Matt Yole and Jay Gatley placed 1st with 2 wins
and +9 points. Dave Ruckman and Susan Flanagan were 2nd with 2 wins and
+8 points.All the bowlers seemed to enjoy playing on Ladner’s new
artificial surface. All were very appreciative of the hospitality shown
by the members of the club. They were great hosts, served a delicious
lunch and their markers did a very efficient job. We hope the club will
invite us back in the future,
Below is a video highlighting blind bowls.

Run for Light
May 14, 2013 - At a recent Board of Directors meeting it was decided that due to the increasing cost, staff and volunteer time commitment and the fluctuation in revenue from the run due to weather dependence and the number of other recreational opportunities available in Vancouver, the association has determined that we need to ensure we put our resources into physical activity programs for British Columbians who are blind or visually impaired. We have therefore determined that we will not hold a Run for Light in 2013. BC Blind Sports will explore other options for events in the future.
BC Blind Sports thanks our supporters, volunteers, staff, donors, participants and the community who have contributed to the Run over the past 33 years.
