This year at the Canada 5 Pin Open Provincial Championship in Grand Prairie, the central Alberta women’s team will have Stettler’s Nicole Philpot and Shauna Pirie Laisnez, while the men’s team will have Dave Philpot.

More than 35 bowlers congregated in the weekend in Red Deer to participate in the Central Ladies and Men’s Open championships and battle out who is the best in central Alberta as they played 20 games.

Laisnez placed second, and Philpot placed fourth in the women’s, while Dave Philpot placed fourth in the men’s.

This means that although Laisnez will be able to participate in the ladies’ singles as well as be a part of the women’s team, Philpot will only be allowed on the women’s team.

Similarly, Dave Philpot coming in fourth means he would be playing on the men’s team, but has been unable to make it to the singles.

The Philpot family is quite pleased nonetheless and are “extremely proud and excited” for the opportunity to represent central Alberta.

“Dave and I are so pleased for Nicole, as she has wanted to be a part of this for a while now,” said Darlene Philpot, Nicole Philpot’s mother.

Philpot is looking forward to the opportunity to play with her mentor and coach Laisnez and said, “I just want to play well.”

The Canada 5 Pin Bowlers’ Association (C5PBA) provincials will be hosted in Grand Prairie this year from Wednesday, April 12 to Saturday, April 15.
