TONY BOUCHER AUSTRALIAN PAIRS
We regret that this tournament has been cancelled for 2020 in accordance with the instructions issued by Bowls BC and V & D.
We hope to resume the tournament in 2021
The Australian Pairs, which was instituted in 1987, is the only truly Gender Neutral (men, women or mixed teams allowed) in the entire V&D calendar and some of the best bowlers as well as some up-and-comers make this event a must in their season.
The event was renamed while Tony was alive in recognition of his many contributions to the club. Tony served many roles on the executive and was president several times. His outstanding contributions to the club, regional and provincial, organizations and bowls in general won him recognition and awards. Tony was a mainstay of the club until his death in 2018.
The format is 2-4-2 pairs which means that one teammate rolls the first 2 and the last 2 bowls and their partner rolls the middle 4. At the next end the players reverse. It is a true team game!
The entry fee is $20 per player. Payment can be made by cheque mailed with your entry form of by E-transfer (See instructions)
