Special to the Record

Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club is gearing up, shifting gears and  getting ready to roll with the Provincial Ladies Triples event on Friday, July 11. First game is at 10 a.m.

Eight teams – Ann Mathie from Victoria;  Diane Fulton, Mary Wright and Sharon Baldwin from Vancouver; Parksville’s Brenda Edwards; Mary Mulligan of Nanaimo;  Robin Forrest of Port Alberni and Courtenay’s Pat Cutt – will take to the green for the Provincial championship and the opportunity to participate in the National event in Winnipeg in August.

The men’s edition of this event takes place in Nanaimo, with 15 teams involved.  Courtenay’s Vern Greenhill  has a team in this group. Triples is new event for the Nationals; 2013 was the first year for this as the Singles have an event of their own now.  Parksville will be hosting the National Mixed Pairs event later in August.

Parksville Mixed Pairs were held July 4-6 and Vern Greenhill and Melie Ursulom placed in the B event and Henri Saucier and Sandy Tonnellier  were also in the money.

On the home front,  the first half of the Wednesday Mixed League had Peter Harding with Bill Whitehouse and Rosemary Montreuil winning over Vern Greenhill, Helen Ryley and Ann Kwasnizka.  New teams will be formed and the spare list will be arranged differently.

Tuesday Men’s Pairs were won by “ends won” by Vern Greenhill and Henri Saucier over Dean Penny and Don Wiseman.

Ladies Pairs were won by Pat Cutt and Marguerite Sklarchuk,  with April Gilchrist and Sandy Tonnellier a close second.

Webber Singles has Pete Harding, Dean Penny and Vern Greenhill tied for points and very close in differential.  More games to come.

Many of the bowlers will be away in Alberni for Mens and Ladies Pairs, July 9-10 so the greens will be available for the Provincial competitors to practise, although there may be some Webber games happening.
