  • MVP Sports - Are You Ready for the Summer of 2012?
    help keep us fit a summer bowls and golf I don t have a problem that way I curl too so quite frankly I don t miss the shovelling one little bit I do however like to stay in shape throughout the winter Inasmuch as I like to watch sports any sports on TV and we go through our share of movies I know the importance of a regular daily workout no matter how short or long in duration I ve picked up most every bit of fitness equipment you can imagine over the years and all have been useful in one way or another Two that stand out for me have been the Gravity Edge kind of like a poor man s nautilas gym which allows me to do 90 of my weight bearing exercises read healthy bones here and more recently the Whole Body Vibration Machine There are different WBVM machines out there and I must warn you there are those made for lawn bowlers and golfers and those made for serious weightlifting addicts The former are oscillating machines that have a gentle side to side motion that they claim when used for only 10 minutes is the equivalent to a full 60 minutes of walking Beats any treadmill IMO The others are an up and down motion that quite frankly rock the inside of my head quite violently Unless you re into that sort of abuse I d stay away from those units I ll have more to say on these units in a later blog but it has become my go to machine every day If you want to check out this type of unit skim through your local phone book for a T Zone location near you They have a trial session in their stores

    Program assisting with the Canadian National Junior Championships Junior Development Camps and other Junior endeavours throughout the country Last year we also helped one of the Under 25 winners Dylan Jacobs raise money towards his trip to Warilla Australia for the U 25 World Championships This is a costly trip for this young adult and we figured anything we could do to help him out would be a bonus Continue Reading View Comments 1 Categories Coaching Bowls 21 November 2010 The Delivery Doctor is at it Again A visit to the MLS Indoor At a recent Date with the Delivery Doctor at the new MLS bowls centre in Toronto I had confirmation once again of what I think is one of the most misunderstood aspects of the delivery the pendulum motion Why is it misunderstood For decades the schooling has been that the bowls delivery is based on a pendular motion and while there may be a modicum of truth in this the full concept of pendular is often mistaken as being akin to the true pendular movement of a grandfather clock which has very little to do with the way the arm is hinged or works in the bowls

    Doctor at the new MLS bowls centre in Toronto I had confirmation once again of what I think is one of the most misunderstood aspects of the delivery the pendulum motion Why is it misunderstood For decades the schooling has been that the bowls delivery is based on a pendular motion and while there may be a modicum of truth in this the full concept of pendular is often mistaken as being akin to the true pendular movement of a grandfather clock which has very little to do with the way the arm is hinged or works in the bowls delivery Continue Reading View Comments 1 Categories Coaching Bowls 09 November 2010 Canadiana ACE Limited Edition Get your set of Red White Speckles before they run out For a limited time only you can order your own set of Taylor ACE bowls Canadiana style That s right We are making available a limited number of these special Red and White Speckled bowls for the first time but you ll have to act fast if you want to reserve your special set You only have until December 31st 2010 to order your set with your choice of engraving Continue Reading Leave

  • MVP Sports - It's all about not giving up!
    just flailing away and I focussed on where my putts would be rolling not entirely successful except there were no three putts so let s compare this to bowls and curling you ve stunk up the joint in the first 5 or 6 ends do you give up and call it a bad day or do you do something about it do you set goals for the next 2 ends for the next 6 ends for the finish If you don t I m willing to wager that you finish up just the way you started in a mess In 1984 I was honoured to be selected to play in the Gateway International Singles Tournament alongside David Bryant Willie Wood Peter Belliss some of bowls greatest bowlers In my last sectional game I was down 18 9 to Willie Wood who at the time was at the top of his game The other lads had finished their games and I heard them say to Willie as they walked by the back of the green see you in a few minutes at the pub Willie that was the spark I needed to get me out of my funk For whatever reason I made an adjustment to my style that was obviously not working for shorteer ends I was gettin hammered on them by Willie a little more crouch less backswing less hurried just over an hour later the same lads came back as I was finishing my game with Willie having just played an immaculate draw to the button when the BCC commentators in the background were announcing to the TV audiences the young Canadian must surley be driving the head now and next playing what may be the tighest and best placed guard I had ever played at that point

  • MVP Sports - Is it time to change the Ontario Championships format?
    moving forward Goals to ensure the best possible teams represent Ontario at the Canadian Finals to condense the playing schedule to a maximum of 9 days at which time Provincial finalists would be declared in the three major events Fours Pairs and Singles to ensure consistency of play throughout the playdowns Format Ontario Championships 1 week 9 days total from Saturday to the following Sunday Fours Sat Mon Pairs Tues Thurs Singles Fri Sun Venue Provincial Headquarters 1 Provincial Headquarter will be selected by the Provincial Finals Organizing Committee Provincial Headquarters will require minimum of 2 regulation greens 3 4 would be desirable Provincial Headquarters will have greens running no less than 12 seconds and no more than 15 seconds and there will be a necessary consistency between one green and another Provincial Headquarters will be provided with the services of Ontario s top greenskeeper equipment and resources and and will require they also have a building facility sufficient to host the anticipated number of bowlers for the duration of the Championship event Provincial Headquarters will need a food and beverage component capable of hosting the anticipated number of bowlers Benefits Time Saved playdown time cut in half Money Saved to both the participants and the organization Open Tournaments will once again thrive Quality Greens for Championships Money collected directed to Provincial Headquarters Greens and Championship Players Broadcast ready finals Sponsor attractive event with finals and consistent venue with quality greens Provincial Champions declared well in advance of the National Finals Week long tournament does not specifically cater to one demographic ie those who work weekends do not have to forego the event every year due to work commitments Recommendations Hosting the finals starting on the July 1st weekend would mean fewer days that those working M F would have

    that you can work on this may eventually lead to some provincial volunteer work or maybe even a national program There is always something that needs to be done at any level I have great respect for those who put in countless hours of volunteer work these are the givers Been there done that doin that now I saw the results of their efforts first hand at our local curling club the past few seasons I have seen the efforts of family and friends throughout the years and admired them for their dedication sometimes in the face of skepticism and or criticism I have occasionally wondered at the intentions of other givers but never dwell on them for it is the true givers those who give willingly of themselves that keep our sports going These are the ones tat deserve our attention and whom we should be using as examples I realize that not everyone has the time or physical capability to assist with some tasks but there are ready made opportunites available for each and every bowler curler and golfer at their clubs whether it be helping with a tournament league event or perhaps a building project or membership drive or coaching program These are the opportunities that will always exist year in year out There are however other ways in each of our sports that we can open our doors to others and by so doing not only help them but our own sports as well with the exposure we will be gaining a good example of giving and taking without actually taking anything Charity curling bonspiels bowls tournaments and golf scrambles are good examples of how we can help support local or national charities I have recently heard of some bowls clubs who get it and are

  • MVP Sports - Championships Bowls Pool
    as I have with the online banter that goes on all season in some pools We re hoping to get the same thing going in bowls and I must apologize if in this first year it seems there is some heavy weighting going on with respect to Ontario Events but trust me when I say that for the most part knowledge of the game in some pools has little to do with who wins them As often as not lady luck has a say in most pool outcomes That s why I think it would be a hoot if someone from the Maritimes won our Ontario Pairs Stage or someone from BC hmm George won the Ontario Mixed Pairs Stage We will have at least 10 Stages in which you can enter throughout the season with each winner being awarded a small Stage prize but more importantly Stage winners will get their names entered into the final draw for the Grand Prize a set of Taylor Bowls If you have a Championships Event you would like to have us consider please email me and I will definitely take it into consideration And if the Bowls Pool is successful I anticipate running it again next year So talk it up amongst your friends cuz the more entries I get the better the Grand Prize will be Item Tag Bowls Categories Just Stuff Bowls Comments 4 Dan 19 June 2012 at 17 32 The Club MVP Championships Bowls Pool is underway Winner of the Ontario Fours Stage 1 were Chestergreat and Biffy55 Sign up now in our Forum for the Ontario Pairs Stage 2 Pool reply George Boxwell 05 July 2012 at 13 29 I am picking joe and brad to win gold or silver Houghtby other winner reply Dan 09 July
