On JUNE 8th, 2013 KOs hosted an afternoon of Wheelchair Rugby in a 3 hour scrimmage !! Amazingly, on this beautiful Kelowna day, everyone was still energized and enthusiastic about the Bowling afterward…a little sweaty, hungry, and thirsty, but nothing a beer and some pizza couldn’t quench… The eagerness of the player’s and volunteers was a wonderful sight of a busy group working together to play hard at rugby, then relax and enjoy some laughs and a whole different adventure in bowling !
