The sport of carpet bowling within the area has currently been undergoing a whirlwind of tournaments as players compete to qualify for the provincials and the BC Senior Games.

Most recently carpet bowlers Ernie Yungen (Barriere) and Anke Zurowski (Barriere), have  triumphed over fierce competition  to win first place on Apr. 8, in Little Fort during 2’s zone playoffs for the BC Senior Games competitions which will be held in August in Kamloops.

The 3’s will be played off in Barriere on Apr. 26, and the 4’s will be played off in Little Fort on Apr. 29.   The competitions may run over two days each, depending on the number of participants.

Only the winning teams will get to represent our zone at the BC Senior Games, unlike the provincials where the first and second team from each zone are eligible.  We are Zone 8 in the Senior Games, and Zone 2 in the Provincials.
