A Brief History of the Fletcher/Folz

This event was started in 2014 by Kerrisdale club members David Arnott, Barrie Brown and Cathy Selzler.

It started life as a 2-bowl open club, mixed triples tournament and was so named in honour of two members who had been very active in the club, Bill Fletcher being president for several years and Richard Folz, both of whom had died within a couple of months of each other.

In 2015, it was run as The Centennial Triples to mark the 100-year anniversary of KLBC.

In 2016, it reverted back to the Fletcher/Folz, still in the mixed 2-bowl triples format.

In 2017, the format was changed to 3-bowl men’s triples.

No tournament was held in 2018 because the date clashed with a provincial event, so insufficient entries were received.
