I was looking around for who the winners of the last two bowls raffles for the U25's were but I couldn't find them on the blog anywhere! Specifically, I'm talking about the draws for the 2011 and 2012 sets of bowls. Were the draws cancelled because the international events the juniors were supposed to go to were cancelled? Or is it just hard to find the posts about the winners?

Also, are this year's winners of the U25's also raffling off a set of bowls? I'm a bit of a raffle addict and help supporting my fellow juniors with their ventures!!!

HI Josh
Nope... true to our word, and regardless of what BCB or WBC did with respect to the promise of sending the winners to either Warilla or an International event, we continue (this year too) to provide the winners of the U25 with a set of Taylor Colour Bowls each to raffle off for the purposes of "player development" or in the case of this year, a late promise to send them to Tiger Bowls. Selling the raffle tickets will provide them with an avenue to build up some funds for their travel or for somem new training equipment.

In the past we have had winners like Dylan Jacobs, Kelly McHerihen etc. We started this process about 4 or 5 years ago at the U25 Championships in London Ontario when we found out that the winners were provided with basically... nothing to help them with their expenses for the trip to Warilla. We figure it's just part of our ongoing commitment to the Youth Bowls Program here in Canada.

Oddly, some years we have had winners not contact us for their tickets... not sure why but that's life I guess. Others, when they found out a trip was not in the cards offered to not take the bowls, howevere we were adamant that they do as we saw this as training expenses and not tied down to any one trip in particular.

This year the winners were Alex Leblanc and Jaymee Sidel. ALex has contacted us already and while he was still in Fredericton (and while Jaymee was still playing her final match) we sent him the proofs of the tickets, he made copies and had begun flogging them already... way ahead of the game he is!

In al fairness though we should start posting the winners of the draws... wish we had photos as well... would be a nice little marketing tool wouldn't it?

On this topic - Alex was playing in Oshawa last Sunday at the Junior Open Pairs & had tickets for sale -- I'm hoping he'll bring them along with him this coming Sat. 24th when he comes to Cobourg for the MVP 4-3-2-1 Junior Tournament.

Alex, we'll advertise during the day -- so brings those tickets. Look forward to seeing you, Nicole & ? on Sat. 24th.

Hopefully Alex and Jaymee will be able to raise a lot of money for their trip. I was lucky enough to be paired up with Alex in the Forster Lang Pairs and we picked up a silver medal. Can't wait to see them compete for Canada!
