APRIL 2023

Covid had a big impact on the officiating numbers dropping from 30 to 15 umpires for the Vancouver and District. Fortunately, the numbers have improved with the addition of new umpires: Gaston Essiambre (Mann Park); Elaine Wass (Dunbar); Amy Leung and Eric Leung (Richmond) who are joining the ranks after successfully passing the written and measuring tests for Level 1 umpires.

In January our National Chief Umpire George Cubiss, was elected to be the Chair of the National Officiating Committee.

This year is a busy one on the officiating side with V&D clubs hosting District events and the Provincial Men's and Women's singles, pairs, fours, mixed pairs and juniors.

2023 Umpire Training Course

On May 15th, 2023 George Cubiss will be facilitating a Level 1 Umpire Training Course at New Westminster LBC for those who wish to become an umpire.​ ​Contact George Cubiss – georgecubiss@gmail.com for further information. It is our aim for each club to have a qualified umpire as a club member.

Markers Clinic

There is much more to marking a game than flipping the score over on the scoreboard, marking the score on the scorecard and setting the ‘Jack’.

George Cubiss will organize a ‘Markers Clinic’ for interested bowlers. The clinic will run for two hours in the morning, then a short DVD on Marking in the afternoon, followed by practice on the green.

Cost is $5.00 per person to cover traveling and stationary costs. The people who pass the course will receive a BC Bowls qualified ‘Markers Card’ valid for 4 years. 

Rules Clinics

George will also hold a “Rules Clinic” for any interested club.  He will go over the most common rules and answer questions from the floor. 

If you would like to attend the Marker’s Clinic and/or have a Rules Clinic conducted at your club, please contact George at (604) 466-8739 or email him at: georgecubiss@gmail.com
