Chili Bowl


The Chili Bowl is our last club tournament of the season and is open to all club bowlers. Participants sign up as individuals and the tournament director(s) assign two large teams, which compete against each other in a variety of lawn bowling disciplines which may include singles, pairs, triples and fours.  The competing teams earn points based on whether they win or lose and by how many points per game. At the end of play, the top-scoring team is declared the tournament winner.

As the name of the tournament suggests, chili consumption plays a major role! A number of various styles of chili will be available for breakfast, brunch, lunch and during breaks between games. Our third annual chili contest will offer participants the chance to vote for their favorite chili and crown a chili champ next to the bowling champs. The entry fee supports the chili brunch.
