Special to the Record

The Courtenay Lawn Bowling green was filled almost to capacity May 17-18 with the Anderton Nurseries Triples Tournament.

The five local teams, skipped by Vern Greenhill, Pat Cutt, Henri Saucier, Peter Harding and Dean Penny were very good hosts – no shows in the winners circle! The Edwards team from Parksville,  Brenda and Wayne Edwards with Cheryl Baker, took the honours in fine form.

Courtenay teams have done well in the previous two tournaments so far this year with Vern Greenhill, April Gilchrist and Melie Ursulom winning the Shandley Triples in Nanaimo, May3-4, and Peter Harding, Dan and Gaynor Bereza with Carolyn Kassian taking fourth in the Qualicum MacPherson Fours.

Melie Ursulom and Pat Cutt and Ross Younger and Michael Lynch will be the Zone 2 Pairs representatives for the BC Senior Games in Langley.

Club tournaments got underway on Tuesday, May 20, with Ladies Pairs Jackie West, Carolle Allen; April Gilchrist, Sandy Tonnellier; and Melie Ursulom, Marsha Mann winning their games on the ladies side. The men, my information is incomplete: Vern Greenhill and the musicians, Dan Bereza and Ernest Kassian, won their games but I will get more information on that for next time.

The Webber singles starts on May 22, and that will be yet another set of stats to keep track of. Sure is busy around here.

The coaches are willing to give of their time if anyone is interested in giving this game a try.  Tuesday mornings at 10:30 a.m. has Jackie West on the green coaching newcomers and old hands.  For other newcomers to the sport, leave a message at 250-338-8222.
