Courtenay lawn bowlers did it again at the Applebee’s Mixed Fours on Aug. 18-19.

They dished out defeats – even down to a three-end playoff – as the latest “Green Team” Vern Greenhill, Rick Quibell, Mary Mulligan and Helen Ryley won best-two-of-three playoff ends to defeat the other four-game winner. Vern Hagstom, Keith McMann. Anne Ashdown and Margaret Coleman gave a good showing (in the battle of the Verns) for second place.

The Steve Forrest  team of Port Alberni led the three-game winner  teams of Mick Banks of Parksville, Art Ferguson of Parksville and hometown heroes Pat Chambers, Cal and Myrna Viers and Henri Saucier placed sixth after the ends won had been counted.

Thanks to the greens committee, food committee and especially those who dressed up country western style to add to the fun of it all. The team of Dean Penny, Cath, Chris and Don Wiseman won Best Dressed Team and Sandra Metcalf of Nanaimo won the Best Dressed Cowgirl.  2013’s theme will be pirates.

On the club scene: Friday Aggregate has four more weeks to go and Dean Penny tops the list of 32 competitors with 30 points. Cec Kerr has 25 and Lorna Setter has 22. Three tied at 20 points are Gary Rhindress, Linda Meers and Peter Cartwright.

Mixed Pairs has Frank Lo and Helen Ryley giving Archie and Linda Harris a run with eight points. Bill and Irene Whitehouse, Vern Greenhill and April Gilchrist, and Henri Saucier and Sandy Tonnellier are even up with six points. With two more weeks to go, it is anyone’s game.

Wednesday Mixed League has a logjam with no clear leader.

Webber Singles has Archie Harris and Melie Ursulom tied with 18 points and no losses in the lead. Vern Greenhill is threatening with 16 points and Pat Cutt is toddling along with 14 points. Again, a big thank you to games chair Peter Harding who works out this complicated schedule of markers and players.

Coming up is the Fundraising Carnival on Sept. 1. There is a $20 entry fee per player, lots of fun games and you may enter as an individual or a team. Sign-up sheet is in the clubhouse.

Our men’s pairs and ladies pairs winners, Pete Harding and Dan Bereza, Pat Norrad and Pat Chambers, are off to Vancouver South for the Champion of Champions event, Sept. 1-2, sponsored by Bowls BC.  Best of luck to them.
