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 !!!

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.
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.
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.
$5,500 SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS EARNED!

Youth Doubles Results 15-16
The Canadian Youth Championships were held May 30 – Jun 1 in Winnipeg, MB. This annual championship tournament brings 8 provincial teams of 6 youth bowlers together to compete for medals, scholarship and a National Title in each of Bantam, Junior, Intermediate and Senior divisions.
Southern Ontario won a total of 14 medals at this years competition … 7 GOLD, 2 SILVER and 5 BRONZE! Contributing to this teams success were 3 youth from London and District who all came home with medals!
Rebekah Loker (pictured above left) from Woodstock, who bowls out of Bowlerama Royale, was the Junior Girl on the team. This was Rebekah’s first time at CYC’s but competed at a National Level at YBC Nationals in 2012. She had great success in Winnipeg bringing home Silver in the Team Event, Gold in the Doubles Event, went undefeated to win Gold in Singles Event and became the 2015 Junior Girl National Champion! With that title she earned $175 scholarship thanks to funding from Sport Canada!
Brayden Vaughan (pictured above right) from St. Thomas, who bowls out of Heritage Lanes, was the Junior Boy on the team. This was Brayden’s first ever National Tournament and he too brought home a GOLD medal in doubles having bowled the event with Rebekah Loker. Brayden had stop competing at this tournament due to medical reasons but showed everyone what a great sportsman and team player he was when he cheered the rest of his teammates on for the remainder of the tournament.
Mykaela Mitchell (pictured above centre) from London, who bowls out of Bowlerama Royale, was the Intermediate Girl on the team. This was Mykaela’s 3rd time at CYC’s and was able to bring home a Silver in the Team Event, Gold in the Doubles Event, Bronze in the Singles Event, and became the 2015 Intermediate Girl National Champion! This is her 3rd National CYC’s title winning as a Bantam in 2010, Junior in 2012 and now Intermediate in 2015. With that title she won a $200 scholarship thanks to funding from Sport Canada!
These 3 bowlers set goals at the beginning of the season…worked hard to make that dream a reality, showed perseverance and came out on top! One game…one frame…one ball at a time!
Rebekah and Mykaela’s National Banners will be on display at Bowlerama Royale!
