Courtenay Lawn Bowling bowlers were in the money again in Powell River at the Aug. 8-9 Mixed Triples sponsored by Quality Foods.

Pat Cutt, Henri Saucier and Melie Ursulom won three of their four games for a fifth-place finish. Four-game winners and home team Bob and Eileen Milsom with Qualicum import Maureen Hanright were overall winners and ends won decided the placements of the three-game winners.

Dan and Gaynor Bereza, Bill and Irene Whitehouse, and Peter Harding and Frank Lo also attended and finished with 2-2 records. A fabulous dinner was served and the hospitality of the Powell River club and merchants is much appreciated.

On the local scene, the Club Singles was played Aug. 11-12. This was “sets event” where Men’s and Ladies play two nine-end sets, and a three-end playoff if necessary, Novice Men and Ladies played two seven-end sets with a three-end playoff if necessary. The winners (unavailable at press time) qualify for Zone competition Sept. 8-9 in Powell River.

2-4-2 was Pete’s new event for this season and it has been well attended. This is pairs, and the leads bowl two bowls, skips bowl four bowls and then the leads bowl their remaining two bowls. The other aspect of 2-4-2 is that it is two bowlers from 2-4 p.m. on Thursday afternoons. High points at the moment are Marlene Gerrand, Peter Harding, and Sandy Tonnellier. Sounds like fun!

Webber Singles, (which is played to 13 points, and is not gender specific) still have a game or two differences but Archie Harris is leading the way with eight games played and won for 16 points. He’s followed closely by Vern Greenhill and Melie Ursulom with 14 points. Pat Cutt and Dean Penny are pushing them along with 12 points. Still anybody’s trophy as there are several weeks yet to play.

Wednesday League has the teams of Archie Harris, Pat Chambers and Dean Penny leading the way.

Thanks to Dean Penny who is keeping the green occupied while many of the other bowlers are away. It was great to come home to see a full green on Thursday evening.

Aug. 18-19 is the Applebee’s Bar and Grill Mixed Fours here in Courtenay. There are at least 24 teams entered from all over the Zone and country western attire is optional. Usual dress code unless country western and if all team members are not up to it, that is fine. There is a prize. Some of the down-islanders are gleaning the thrift shops for the appropriate costumes.
