Earlybird Spring Shootout Ladder started Wednesday, April 19th and and concluded May 9 after four weeks of fun, close games.

On court #1, the first two weeks were dominated by John Halliday who had not dropped any points but fierce competition in the latter stages saw Rheal Boulanger lead the third week and Brian Gysel win the final week and the series.

Meanwhile on courts #2 and 3 Richard Lachance,Lance Elliott and Bruce McIvor were in a battle to win the court and advance. A special mention also for Paul Lachance who started playing recently and has improved with every outing.

171220 End of Season Play and Lunch

Wednesday morning on the 20th was the last day of play at Canadore in 2017. Play starts again January 3rd in the new year.

There were 28 players during the morning session and most stayed for lunch. Play was light hearted. At lunch the board members made announcements and there were a series of gag awards. Also a couple of serious awards for best novice players. Well done Tom G and Kim; both new players even though neither of them play like it.

Below are a selection of photos and videos of play and lunch.
