2017 IBBA World Championships - Cape Town, South Africa, March 20-31

The tournament games got going today with almost everyone having at least one game. All of the games will be played at the Western Province Cricket Club. There are 12 championship sections - 4 for the women's sight categories, 4 for the men's and 4 for the mixed pairs. Play will continue until Tuesday of next week.

Monday March 20, 2017
Canada was drawn against Australia in our 5 games. Gus Thorne played the Australian B1 player and I wish we had been playing sets. We scored the first point and after 10 ends Australia was ahead 17 - 1. The next 10 ends Gus out scored his opponent 11 - 4. However we were playing to 21 points so Australia won 21 - 12.

In the afternoon mixed pairs event Gus was paired with a woman from Northern Ireland. Gus is the skip of the pairs team and played opposite the same Australian man who had beaten him in the morning. Gus outplayed him quite handily and they won 15 - 7.

In the B3 category Daniel Morris of Montreal defeated his Australian opponent 21 - 11 in singles. Vivian Kwan of Edmonton lost her singles match.
Kwan and Morris combined for their pairs game against Australia. The game was very close for most of the contest but Australia pulled ahead in the last 2 ends to win 16 - 11.

All of the games will be played at the Western Province Cricket Club. There are 12 championship sections - 4 for the women's sight categories, 4 for the men's and 4 for the mixed pairs. Play will continue until Tuesday of next week.

Gus and Donn will be in action again tomorrow with a singles and pairs game against Hong Kong.

Picture 1 this is the view from the greens toward Table Mountain. I was told by a local while I was taking this picture that the clouds coming that direction is a sign of rain. There is quite a fall of rain as I am writing this.

Picture 2 is the view of the clubhouse where we have our lunch and dinner, you can see Gus with his teammate Lisa Royle of North Ireland with her husband Steve, her director.
