It is with sadness I report of another Victoria bowler, Dave Shaffer, having passed away last week.
Dave bowled for many years in local leagues and was bowling in the Over The Hill senior league this season.
My sympathies and condolences go out to the family.
A reminder to youth bowlers the deadline for Victoria USBC Scholarship applications is June 15.
This is a good opportunity for qualifying youths for receiving help in advancing their education.
