Michael Schmidt – MTF Executive Director

The Manitoba Tenpin Federation is pleased to announce that they have selected their new Executive Director.  Michael Schmidt has been chosen to help lead the development of tenpin bowling for our province.  He is replacing long-time MTF Executive Director Ken Burns, who has served in the position for over 32 years.

Michael is no stranger to the Manitoba and Canada bowling communities, starting as a Bantam Bowler in 1987, to then becoming a Two-Time World Champion, three-time Member of Team Canada, Multi-National and Provincial Record Holder, and Pro Shop Operator at La Verendrye Lanes for the past 18 years.

Schmidt is excited about this new chapter in his life and looking forward to fostering, promoting and further developing our sport with the long-term goal of securing and maintaining a lasting legacy for Manitoba Tenpin Bowling into the future.

Additionally, Schmidt still enjoys interacting with and assisting our members with their equipment needs, therefore he will be continuing his La Verendrye Pro Shop duties on a part-time basis, with the help & support of two newly trained staff members.

Michael is scheduled to commence the position effective April 1, 2024.
