Hello Fellow Master Bowlers,
We welcome you to another season. Your membership dues helped us remain a viable
association during the 2019-2020 season and we thank you very much for your support. We are
hopeful that we will be able to get a full season in this year, culminating in the National
Championships in Edmonton.
We all know by now that our Covid 19 situation can change very quickly. We want everyone to
stay safe and follow provincial Alberta Health Services guidelines as we progress through the
year. Please work closely with your local proprietors who are working hard to ensure our Y.B.C.
bowlers and coaches are both safe yet still have fun in our sport.
We are working with Bowl Alberta and Alberta 5 Pin Bowlers Association closely to safely run our
tournaments. We will run our tournaments as we are permitted with AHS. We may once again

contingent for this year’s Nationals in Edmonton. We will try to stick to our schedule the best we
can throughout the year. Please understand that we will be doing the best we can under the

make this a smooth Championship.
