The Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club was represented in the Qualicum Ladies' Pairs by April Gilchrist/Janet Butler, Cath Wiseman/Shelley McCollom, Pat Cutt/Sandi Tonnellier Pat Norrad/Linda Meers. While none of our ladies finished in the money, we did have a good showing for our small club.
The Parksville Club was hosting their re-invention of the Men's Classic Triples. Our club only had one team representing and it was the winners from last year: Vern, Greenhill Henri Saucier, and Dean Penny. To win the event seven games of 16 ends had to be played over three days. They were placed sixth after the second day and came back on Sunday to win all of their games and finish as the top team for a second year.
In local events, the Tuesday Men's Pairs have played four weeks and Archie Harris/Ernest Kassian lead the way with 12 points with Pete Harding/Bill Whitehouse and Vern Greenhill/Henri Saucier coming on strong with six points each.
Our new rule book says that three points will be awarded for a win and one point for a tie, so we have to change our thoughts to that format. Ladies Pairs have Melie Ursulom/Anne Kwasnitza tied on top of the list with Carole Nelson/Irene Whitehouse with nine points.
Wednesday Triples after five weeks have April Gilchrist/Bev Hambly/Dennis Perrier with 12 points, Dave Hambly/Carolle Allen/Carolyn Kassian with 11 points and then we have a three-way tie for third place.
The Thursday 242 has novice bowler Shelley McCollum with 12 points and April Gilchrist with 10 points. The Thursday Webber Singles have Archie Harris leading with 12 points and Peter Harding close on his heels with 9 points.
As clubs go, we rock!
