A group of local women teamed up to socialize and have fun at a game of bowling and it turned into so much more.
Adela Meyer, team captain, has been bowling for many years and asked a group of ladies if they would be interested in starting a team and bowling in Saskatchewan. Provincial Games in Prince Albert. The ladies were all in on it because they loved the sport and the socializing that came with it. They never thought they would win a gold medal. Meyer had competed before and was confident in her teammates.
The team traveled to Prince Albert to compete in the games in July and won the gold medal. They played nine games in total and emerged victorious. Many of the women played the best they had ever played before and helped secure the victory.
The victory not only made their grandchildren and great-grandchildren call them ‘almost famous’, but it also gave them the opportunity to travel to Kamloops, BC for the national games. seniors.
National level games take place from August 23 and continue until August 26. The team will be without one original member who will not be able to make it to the games. Instead, she will take a player from Wadena, Georgina Johnson.
The Canada 55+ Senior Games have been around since 1996 when the first tournament was held in Regina.
Good luck to the ladies as they travel and hopefully bring home more gear.
