2023 Skills Development Camp
(Posted March 2023)
This year Bowls USA sponsored the Skills Development Camp held in Sun City, AZ.
The Fairway LBC (Sun City) hosted this event. The surface at Fairway is artificial, thus many attendees had never bowled on this surface and had to make modifications to their delivery. Drills and information about the skip position and building a head were all part of this camp, ending with a short game for fun before ending our camp for this year. We had 4 coaches this year to share their talents and knowledge. Bradley Berg, Wayne Baines, Alexis Van den Bos and Jackie Tucker. We also had our Head Chief Umpire, Melanie Vizenor to add knowledge to the Laws of the Game. The attendees were: Cheryl Minvielle, Ginger Harris, Mohammed Ahrar, Vicki Draper, Eleanor & Howard Reafsnyder, Susan Denton, Carol & Al Goff, Tracy Anderson, Steve Folick, Herb Giazeroff, Ian Cameron, Zoot & Monette Velasco, Ted Tragard, Cindy Thompson, Connie Hemings, Mark LaHale, Bill Keenan, Chuck Fowler, Cindy & David Wong, Inger Benson, Greg Jager, Anne McLachlan, Mark Newton, Karen & Stephen Ng, Karen Haugen. Thanks to everyone that made this Camp a very memorable one in spite of the challenges. Look for this event again in February next year.
