The event is entirely free, and gives participants a chance to try archery, pickleball, carpet bowling, 8-ball (hosted across the street at James Street Billiards) and a trio of card games: bridge, whist and cribbage. Representatives from each sport will lead the sessions. The events represent a cross-section of the 33 sports that will be contested at the 2019 BC55+ Games in Kelowna in September.
A similar event was held last year at Fuller Lake Arena, attracting more than 40 participants.
This year’s event also includes a free lunch catered by Fresh Kenny’s Fish and Chips. Advance registration is required. Call 250-748-7529 or drop by the Cowichan Community Centre ticket desk to sign up.
