Paint Night in Support of Local Bowlers


F our Minnedosa youth bowlers are in the midst of

fundraising to attend the Nationals Tournament in
Ottawa on March 27th. The five-day tournament will
have the participants bowling against teams from all
across Canada. The local bowlers include Justine Hay-
wood, Curtis Madden, Kody Calen and Kadence Mad-
den. Debbie Tarn of Minnedosa Bowling Alley, will travel
with the team as their coach and two other bowlers will
accompany them from Killarney and Carberry.
Each bowler is responsible for raising their own ex-
penses of approximately $800, which is why the four lo-
cal youth are busy fundraising. Last Friday, February 8th,
48 people gathered in the Masonic Hall to take part in a
paint class hosted by Shane Robbins of Onanole. The fi-
nal fundraiser for the team, a pancake breakfast, will take
place on March 17th at the Minnedosa Curling Complex.
While travelling and attending the tournament, the
teams are expected to wear team apparel at all times.
Minnedosa Bowling Alley has sponsored team shirts and
United Steel Workers has sponsored the team jackets,
therefore the youth will be decked out in their black and
yellow threads looking very sharp. Photo by Karen Mitchell
