The Quezon Province Association of Manitoba, a local association with roots in Quezon province in the Philippines, held its first Q-Fun 10-pin bowling event on March 22, 2014 at Chateau Lanes in Winnipeg.

The event was the second of QPAM’s fundraising projects this winter. Its objective was to generate funds for the QPAM’s 2014 programs, which include a scholarship grant for deserving students from the province of Quezon; a celebration of Manuel L. Quezon Day, which honours former Philippine president Manuel L. Quezon, the first Filipino president of the Commonwealth of the Philippines under American rule; and other activities which will involve the association’s ever-growing youth membership.

There were 17 teams of six players each that joined in the merriment and almost filled up the lanes.

Team winners of this fun-filled event were: First prize — Bowlero Team; Second prize — Sarbit Team; Third prize — Team Ba. Individual winner awards were given to Jon Reyes as best spare; Nelson Celones for highest score; John Aguilar for best 25 points; Hannielle Urbano for youngest bowler and Manny Aquino for most handsome (wise) bowler.

Special recognition awards were also presented to Kulits Team for being the best in costume, Tuxedo Team for being the early birds and Leah Magsino for most canals.

The sponsors who contributed to the success of the event included Buhler Versatile Inc.; Coast 2 Coast Mortgage with Lito Lorenzana; Cole International; Filipino Journal; Just in Couture; Sarbit Travel and Insurance; and UPS, Kenaston Commons with Jon Reyes.

Maggie Chan-Urbano was president of the event and Alden Novallasca was the event co-ordinator. This was the first bowling event organized by the association in such a long time and the officers, advisers, members and friends agreed to make it an annual event.
