Bowlers contest Bowl Canada Cup trials

Duncan teams headed for provincials in Kelowna and Vancouver

Six teams of four went into action at Duncan Lanes on March 19, bowling a five-game round-robin on pins over average to determine who would represent the alley at the provincial Bowl Canada Cup finals later this month.

On the 10-pin side, the team of Bob and Jaimie Orchin and Jeff and Krista Roscoe dominated the Duncan event with a plus of 336 pins, a margin of 141 pins over the second-place team of Trevor and Lyle Richardson, Adam Peters and Nancy LeCouffe at 195 pins.

“Krista had the most impressive day as she was 220 pins over by herself,” Duncan Lanes coach Bob Linde pointed out.

In third place were Linde, Samuel Nowlin, Sharon Frank and Peter Guillon at plus-116.

The Orchin/Roscoe team qualified to attend the provincial tournament at McCurdy Lanes in Kelowna on April 22. Unfortunately, the Roscoes are unable to attend and their shoes will be filled by Linde and Guillon.

In the five-pin event, the team of Sidney and Edith Clarke, Don Unger, Derek Macey and Doug Delange scored plus 177 pins to beat out three other squads. They will head to the provincial finals at Grandview Lanes in Vancouver, also on April 22.
