Fletcher/Folz Men’s Triples

This event was started in 2014 by David Arnott, Barrie Brown and Cathy Selzler. It started life as a 2-bowl ‘Open Club’ mixed triples tournament and it was 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 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.
