2017 Youth Tournament Results

This year we started something new with our Youth Tournaments by having them all in one weekend.  This was to try and eliminate the conflicts with other tournaments, but also to begin to build an annual EVENT.

This year the tournaments were held Feb 25 and 26, 2017 at both Heritage and C&D Lanes.

We were also very lucky to have this event sponsored by DMAC AUTOMATION http://www.dmacautomation.com.  Thanks to their generosity, there was an additional $4000 in scholarship paid out for this event.  THANK YOU DMAC AUTOMATION for your interest in our youth !!!

CHAPLIN CHALLENGE

The Chaplin Challenge is a new element being added to the London & District Tenpin Bowling Association Youth Tournaments starting in Feb 2017.

This challenge was named in dedication to a great coach and mentor “Dave Chaplin”. Dave coached many generations of youth in London for over 40 years and this Challenge was created to continue his legacy.  

CUP HISTORY

The cup originated when it was presented to the Huron Junior Bowlers by Frederick Lanes in Kitchener at the very last tournament they competed in before Huron Bowl closed. The former Huron executive decided this would follow them when they merged with Bowlerama Royale.  There it became the award for their annual youth match play tournament.  When Dave Chaplin passed away this cup became the “DAVE CHAPLIN MEMORIAL CUP.”

Starting Feb 2017, it is now time to raise the CUP so Dave’s Legacy is not forgotten.   With Dave’s grandson Robbie’s blessing, The Chaplin Memorial Cup and Scholarship will be shared with all London and District youth in the form of the Chaplin Challenge.

RULES

This CHALLENGE was implemented to create competition between the London and District Youth Programs and will run in conjunction with the London & District Youth Tournaments.

At the end of 9 games (Singles, Doubles and Teams) the top 2 females and top 2 males from each house will become the house phantom team. The team with the highest combined 9 game total ALL EVENTS including handicap will be the Chaplin Cup winner!

Top 2 females and top 2 males must have bowled in ALL 3 EVENTS (Singles, Doubles and Teams)

The Cup will be engraved with the winners and will be displayed at the tournaments as well as at the Banquet where the winners will be awarded.

Scholarship to be determined based on available funds.
