V&D Mixed Champions

Information in this section was compiled by Dr. John Aveline.

Some of the most popular events are the mixed events.  There are currently four mixed V&D events, which always have had a strong entry; Mixed Pairs, Mixed Fours, Nicholson Pairs and the President's Cup (which technically is an open event).

President's Cup

    The President's Cup was revived in 2010 after a number of years on hiatus.  Originally, the event was called the Executive Fours.  Each club could enter one team which was made up of members of the club's executive.  This was a men's event (clubs did not amalgamate until the early 1990's) and the club president had to skip the team.  After clubs women's and men's sections amalgamated, a club's team had to be mixed and the requirement that the club president had to skip was relaxed.  The event ceased to be held due to lack of interest. 

    In 2010 Tony Boucher of Granville Park suggested that the event might be revived as a way of the V&D to acknowledge and thank some of the people who volunteer to help run their clubs.  This led to the rebirth of this event in a slightly changed form and with a new name: The President's Cup.

    Teams are still made up from club executives and a club may only have one team, but the gender make-up of the team is unrestricted.  A team may have four men, four women or anything in between.  On the other hand, at least two of the team must be table officers (president, vice-president, treasurer, secretary, past president).  Also, while the original purpose of the event was to give the club executives their own event, the purpose of the President's Cup is thank club volunteers who serve on their club boards (the $20.00 entry fee is paid by the club and a lunch is provided).  The President's Cup also gives club executives a chance to get together on the greens, rather than around the board table, and exchange ideas and thoughts of mutual interest regarding the Sport of Bowls.  Currently the format is 3 10-end games.
