2009 Bowling for Bursary

Bowling for Bursary earns $310 for Bursary Fund

A small but enthusiastic group of 27 alumni friends and family descended upon the Dundas West Bowlerama on April 18, 2009 and raised a total of $310.75 for the Alumni Bursary.

High Game score: Derek (Diddy) Lawrence – 182
Best two game score:  Krys Angel – 266
Best team name:  Team Diddy
Best score by a bowler not actually in attendance:  Simon McNally – 110
Best style: Katrina Angel (for having her own ball & bag)
Most improved bowler for 2010:  Ian “can you get 8 consecutive gutter balls” Handcock

After the event, most bowlers wandered down the street to Scruffy Murphy’s to re-hash the games, catch up on friendships and further embellish the core mythologies of the various decades of camp employment represented by those in attendance, while enjoying samples of the consumable products that were presented on that establishment’s menu. In short—we talked, noshed and re-hydrated.

Please plan to join us at the 2010 Bowling for Bursary. Join the fun and help raise some funds!

The HSR Staff Alumni Bursary is awarded annually to a current staff member of HSR who will be attending a post-secondary education institution the following year and has shown a continuing contribution to the camp and/or Scouting in general. Recipients must make application and are selected by a Bursary Selection Committee. Recipients are announced at the annual Alumni Weekend.

The Bursary is funded by designated donations and special fund raising activities like the bowling night and from other monies designated by the Alumni Executive Committee. For further information, please e-mail the Bursary Chair –
