Letter from the President

Dear Members,

In our Spring Newsletter 2020, we announced the following events for 2020:  our Annual General Meeting to be held on April 18, 2020, our Annual Bowling Tournament to be held on April 5, 2020
and the club’s 65th Anniversary celebration to be held on October 24, 2020.
Sadly, I have to inform you that all these events are now cancelled due to the Corona-19 virus.  The Board of Directors decided that it is in the best interest of all our members to not hold any large gathering
events  in 2020.
Having said that, the President of the Jodelklub Hohgant Schangnau, Bern called me and informed me that they had to cancel their planned trip to Canada, they also felt that this planned trip cannot be held and they are planning, if at all possible, to come and perform at our 2021 Fall Concert.  The members of the Jodelklub Hohgant are very upset that they cannot travel to Canada, as for many jodlers this was a lifelong wish to come and see Canada.  We shall let all our members know if and when the group can travel to Canada in 2021 and will then select an appropriate venue to finally celebrate our 65th Anniversary of our club.
The Annual General Meeting for 2021  and Jass Tournament, as well as the Annual Bowling Tournament dates will be announced in January 2021.  Many members have already paid the 2020 membership fee.  Because we cannot have any events this year, we felt that these members do not have to pay their membership fee for 2021, they are therefore fully paid-up for 2021.
Please stay safe and well.
Lilly Senn and your Board of Directors

2019 – ISC Bowling Tournament Report

INTERIOR SWISS CLUB – 2019 Annual Bowling Tournament Report
A very successful (16th) annual bowling tournament was hosted by the executive and members of the Kamloops ISC on Sunday April 7,2019.

A big THANK YOU goes to all the volunteers and participants from the Vernon and Kamloops clubs who helped with all the preparations that made this event another successful and friendly competition and fun filled social get together.

A special thank you goes Lilly Senn (President) Helene Hasler (Director) Elisabeth Nyfeler (Director) Christa Donauer (Director) who worked hard to make this traditional annual event a memorable get together for all involved. A big Thank You goes to Gabriel Steiger who took numerous pictures and captured the activities of the bowling event.

The bowling competition was held at “ Falcon Lanes” in Kamloops and attended to by 18 bowlers from both clubs. The galley was filled with friends and supporters of all ages and from each area who filled the back stage with cheers, laughter and cow bells sounds based on the present bowlers successes (or not) at the time.

The competitive part of the tournament concluded at about noon after which a luncheonhad been organized at the “ Frick & Frack – Tap House” in Kamloops as part of thetournament winners recognition and awards celebration.

Tables holding the prizes ready for the winners and participants of the tournament as well as the amazing selection of delicious cakes and deserts prepared for by the ladies of the Kamloops club were covered to capacity. We also like to acknowledge the generous donation from Voets Coffee.

Prizes were awarded based on the individual standing and selected by the winners.

Every participant received a prize – therefor everyone was a winner!!!!

This was a great way to end a really fantastic day.

PS.: As every bowler had some great shots but also some that went off the chart, so a back stage spectator and supporter tried to keep a record of all the reasons (14) expressed by the bowlers for his/her ball not doing what it was supposed to… : 1.) I bowl better in the evening, 2) the shoes are too tight 3)didn’t eat breakfast 4) I got up too early 5) this is my nap time 6) the ball had chips in them, …………

See you all at the 2020 Bowling Tournament in Kamloops.
