The final tournament of the season for the Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club was Sept. 22-23. Sixteen teams filled the green and all the usual suspects were there in contention.

Slowly but surely the big names went down and in the end, Melie Ursulom and Gary Rhindress captured the Adam trophy. Second place goes to our hardworking games chair Peter Harding and Carole Nelson.

What a great event. It was great to see so many of our 2012 novices in action – John Kendall, Martine Castellani, Marsha Mann, Cec Shaw, Pat and Ray Zimmerman – and there could have been more.

I made some mistakes last week: Archie and Linda Harris won six games, not five, to win the Zone Mixed Pairs and the Scotch Pairs trophy donators were singular; Adam, not Adams.

Awards night is Saturday, Sept. 29, so we will gather all those winners together and congratulate them. Then there is clean up of the green and clubhouse to turn it over to the city for the winter.
