Season pre-registration is mandatory. A schedule has been devised to ensure that each division’s participants have the opportunity to compete against one another twice. The game format involves one bowler (the lead and skips) handling the bowls, while the other player takes charge of the second and third bowls during the first end. The roles then switch for subsequent ends (e.g., the second end and the third end). Typically, our games consist of 12 or 14 ends. Ideally there will be a social and competitive division.
