Lawn Bowling in Ladner
June 2015 - On behalf of the bowlers and directors from Nanaimo and I am sure also from the 3 other bowlers who participated on Thursday, please accept our big THANK YOU.
The weather cooperated, the pick up and delivery to the ferry went smoothly and the green was all set up and ran predictably. As always the club members made us feel most welcome. The markers did an excellent job and the lunch was delicious. What more could we ask for! Hopefully an invitation to return next year as this is an event that the VI bowlers look forward to.

International Games for Athletes with a Disability
Feb 24, 2015 - Two very close games today for Dave Ruck and and his New Zealand partner. This morning they played against South Africa and they led 7 to 0 after 6 ends. Unfortunately SA scored a 6 on the next end and went onto win 18 to 12. This afternoon against Israel they again started with a bang going up 9 to 0 winning the first 5 ends. After 13 ends they still led 13 to 10. Israel scored 4 on the 14th end and 5 on the 15 th and last end. Playing the last end Israel got an early close bowl forcing Dave to try some up weight shots. Both Dave and his partner played well today but couldn't hold on to their leads. They have 2 more chances tomorrow so hopefully they will play as well as they started today. Vivian Kwan of Edmonton and Al Hanet of Kelowna a B3 pair also played.
Al Hanet Played against New Zealand Team No 1 and No 2. Al and his director
won the first No1 game, and tied with the Number 2 team.

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.
