Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club season in full swing

Club hosting Anderton Nurseries Mixed Triples tournament on May long weekend

Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club has the season rolling along.  We have membership to date of 65 members of which six are Novice bowlers this year.  There is always room for more,  the coaches are always willing to help an interested participant.  Leave a message at 250-338-8222 or stop any time there are bowlers on the green.

Friday Night Triples Aggregate is well underway with a good turnout as has Thursday Afternoon, 2-4-2.  This is Pairs from 2-4 p.m.  These are drop-in events so no long-term commitment is required.

Tuesday evening is Men’s Pairs with six teams and Ladies’ Pairs with eight teams.  Possible end result could be a trip to the Provincial Club Champions event with good prize money.  Wednesday League with 12 teams started with the first Wednesday in May and I should have some interesting standing by the end of the month.

Thursday,  May 14 will be the start of the the Club Championship Webber Singles,  no gender designation,  which goes on for the full season.  There are 16 participants this year.

May long weekend (May 16-17) will bring 96 bowlers from all over the island to play in the Anderton Nurseries Mixed Triples event.  There are six local teams, skipped by Vern Greenhill, Peter Hardin, Dean Penny, Dan Bereza, Frank Lo and Pat Cutt  to keep our pride alive.

Four teams from Courtenay participated in the Shandley Mixed Triples in Nanaimo, May 2-3 with Archie Harris, Henri Saucier and Sandy Tonnellier in the money at sixth place with three wins and one loss,  Vern Greenhill with Michael Lynch and Melie Ursulom were seventh with the same win and loss record.  Parksville teams of Duncan Burke and David Cole were first and second with no losses.

Qualicum Beach Fours saw the return of Vern Hagstrom for first, a Victoria team of Brent Merchant (with the Ballingers) was second and Vern Greenhill, Dean Penny, Jackie West and Melie Ursulom in the money at sixth place.
