The lawn bowling season is halfway through, and July has been the busiest month of all.

Vern Greenhill, Rick Quibell and Mary Mulligan came through the five games of the July 20-21 Lakeside Gold Bowl in Nanaimo without a loss,  defeating the Stu MacNaughton team from Parksville to take top spot.

Dean Penny, Cath and Don and Chris Wiseman gave a very good account of themselves,  successfully playing some extra ends for their wins. Pat Cutt, Henri Saucier and Janet Butler posted two wins and three losses in close games.

Pat Cutt, Irene Whitehouse and Melie Ursulom travelled to Maple Ridge for the Provincial Senior Ladies Triples  and came home very quickly.  Marlene Cleutinx, Josephine Lee and Anne Van Bastelaere were the winners of the Ladies. The Christie Grahame team won the men’s side and these two teams will travel to Peterborough, Ont.  for the Canadian championships in August.

Marie and Malcolm Taylor of North Vancouver won the mixed pairs in a close game against Hiren Bhartu and Josephine Lee and will travel to Calgary for that national event.

Canadian championships in men’s and ladies’ pairs, triples and fours are held in West and North Vancouver Aug. 18-24. B.C. has 36 players entered.

The Parksville Legion and Vivian Sears Mens and Ladies Mixed Triples were held July 27-28 and Pat Cutt, Melie Ursulom and Irene Whitehouse came home with third in the A event,  losing only one game of the four.

Pete Harding, Bill Whitehouse,  and Frank Lo,  Archie Harris, Vern Greenhill and Rick Quibell  also attended and provided sound support to the ladies.

Stu MacNaughton,  Jim Muir and Keith Baker of Parksville won the men’s side and Sandy Mitchell, Gloria Wilcox and Lynn Britz, also of the home club took the Ladies.

At home, the mixed pairs are rolling along with a few catch-up games to be played. The Webber is getting close to the end.

The Friday Aggregate continues to be well supported and the leaders are Dean Penny and Michael Lynch with 23 points,, followed by Melie Ursulom with 21 and the Marsha Mann and Marguerite Sklarchuk with 20 points.

Coming up is the Mixed Triples in Qualicum and then our own Chad’s Mixed Fours. This year the theme is Pirates and dress code is standard whites, club or team colours unless you are in pirate mode.
