NOTE: Jean-Pierre Saumure (Quebec Teaching Mens Single) was unable to bowl in some of his matches. He is given a doe score of 85% of his average of 211 (188, 33 pins under average) for those games, and they will be indicated on the scoresheet. He is unable to win with that doe score, however his opponents must beat his absent score to receive points. As a result, some singles matches and individual matches in the Teaching Team event may result in 0 points allotted, and some team matches may result in 7 points allocated instead of the usual 8.

  5. Hello what hotel are we staying at???

  6. are they any liquor store ,grocery store close to hotel

    • The hotel is in downtown Calgary, so most services are within walking distance. There are many liquor stores, restaurants and coffee shops within a couple of blocks, the CORE shopping center is only 3 blocks away, and there is a Safeway about 10 blocks away.

  7. Will you have any of the Nationals pins for sale or will they be for the bowlers only?

  8. Hello I see the Rookies got to wear White hats is including coaches and Bowlers and do we keep the Hat as a reminder of the Great Event

  9. When will the province contingents will be available

  10. Like to order a Denim Shirt large but not sure if you are receiving my email thanks

  11. Are there averages available for each contingent player?

  12. are the lanes at both centres wood or synthetic

  13. do they have AC

  14. Averages are always posted is there a way you can obtain that information

  15. Tomorrow, Friday, June 21 is the last day for Souvenir presales and remember the denim shirts are presale only. Send me an email with your order and it will be here when you check in. All orders are COD, thanks!

  16. Just wondering Wirth thé flood in Calgary does Thé masters tournament gona Be ok or cancel

    • At this time, we do not expect the flood to affect the National Championships. Keep checking back for updates as we get closer to the event.

  17. Can’t wait get to Calgary. Brings back lots of memories. Looking forward to seeing the changes since I left there in 1987. Used to bowl at Chinook lanes. Can’t wait to see how it’s changed.

    • And we can’t wait for you to get here! Chinook Bowladrome has changed a lot over the years, be sure to let the staff know what you think about it! I’m sure they would love to hear about it.

  18. did the flooding affect the events of the evening you have planned example the fireworks and the Alberta night

    • In case you missed Maureen’s response below, I’ve copied it here:

      Alberta Night is still a go, the fireworks are usually held at Prince’s Island Park which has been severely affected by the flood so I am unsure about the fireworks. The July 1 celebration is very important here so I am sure they will find an alternate location for the fireworks.

  19. I am wondering if there is anything we can do in our down time to help out Calgary? Any relief efforts that I can assist with? I am very excited to be visiting but understand that there is help needed. I would love to help out in the time of need! Please let me know what I can do for Calgary!

  20. Good morning,

    On your website you indicate that the hotel hasnt been affected but when you go to the hotel website it indicate that it has been affected, also on cbc news it indicates that the hyatt regency calgary is closed!

    • the Hyatt is
      closed as of this post, but they have sustained no water damage at all. All we are waiting for is power, which is expectred tomorrow

  21. Alberta Night is still a go, the fireworks are usually held at Prince’s Island Park which has been severely affected by the flood so I am unsure about the fireworks. The July 1 celebration is very important here so I am sure they will find an alternate location for the fireworks.

  22. does our hotel offer free WiFi

  23. It’s June 25 and there still is no entry into the east side of downtown Calgary where the Hyatt is located. Latest info from the City of Calgary twitter site shows that the area surrounding the hotel is still closed and the traffic lights are out. I haven’t been able to confirm anything via the web yet but it does appear that entry in not allowed into the closed area. So, how would it be possible to get to the hotel even if it has not been affected by water damage? It would seem to me that even if the hotel is habitable, we can’t get to it right now, meaning that the tournament is still in jeopardy.

    • We have been given every assurance that all will be ok. Most of downtown has regained power and the Hyatt believes they will have power tomorrow. The hotel is unscathed and everything is ready and waiting for us, we just need power.An announceent will be made here and on FB as soon as we have final confirmation. The tournament will go ahead regardless of the situation at the Hyatt. Stay tuned!

  24. Kudos to everyone who is involved with the National championships and especially to Maureen! You are doing a great job 🙂

  25. thank you Joan!

  26. are there fridges in all rooms

  27. no, you needed to request one with your room request and they were only available for medical reasons, sorry

  28. does the Hyatt have it’s power back

  29. I have been here for 3 days and I,m very impressed with your updates and the way this city has come together to help each other. Way to go Calgary and surrounding areas. Looking forward to nationals and enjoying visiting family.
