What is Maple Leaf Classic?
Maple Leaf Classic is one of the many tournaments that make up the International Gay Bowling Organization, or IGBO as it is known around the world. IGBO believes in Unity, Fellowship and Communication and strives to become the sports membership of choice for the gay community worldwide. Distinguished as being one of the original 6 founding member cities in 1980, Toronto continues its association along with over 200 member leagues and tournaments worldwide.
The Maple Leaf Classic (MLC) tournament attracts people from all over Canada, the United States and even as far away as Australia & New Zealand. All of these countries are affiliated with IGBO and through advertising in that organization MLC draws upwards of 230 LGBT persons, friends and family to Toronto every year.
This year August 11-13, 2017 the Maple Leaf Classic tournament will celebrate its 27th anniversary. While the weekend event will predominately focus on bowling, we will also host many other festivities such as great raffles, evening hospitality parties, incredible fundraising events, a stellar awards banquet and an amazing closing party.
