The maximum number of accepted teams is eighteen. This is an increase from last year’s fourteen teams. We are able to expand the number of teams as we received approval to use Norwood’s greens in addition to using 1212 Dakota. There are no byes so only an even number of teams will be accepted.

Ideally we’re looking for a maximum of 28 bowlers that will be divided into two groups. Stay safe and I wish you all a great summer. I hope to see you everyone on the greens. All COVID-19 precautions will be strictly followed again this year to ensure the safety of all our members and the facility.
