Special to the Record

Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club is a busy place.

Our travellers this week were Vern Greenhill, taking his “Green Team” to first place in Nanaimo’s Centennial Fours, May 23-24. He had a different crew this time – faithful Melie Ursulom with Ross Younger and Jackie West added to the mix.  Dean Penny also tried the different green with Carolle Allen, Cath and Don Wiseman.

The President’s Cup, a zone tournament for the club executives to allow them to get to know one another and share ideas, was May 28 in Port Alberni.  The zone executive team took the honours with Courtenay’s group winning three or their four games for third place.

At home, after three weeks of play in the Wednesday Mixed Triples league, Peter Harding with Rosemary Montreuil and Bill Whitehouse is tied with the team of Frank Lo with Melie Ursulom and Barb Boney at three wins each.

With two wins each are Cath Wiseman, Marlene Gerrand and Cecil Kerr and Dean Penny, Bev Hambley and Mellva Proudlove.

Thursday 242 after three weeks has Michael Lynch in the lead with Vern Greenhill in close pursuit.

Friday Aggregate, with an excellent turnout each week, has Melie Ursulom in the lead with 12 points. There is a big gap until Michael Lynch and Dave Hambley turn up with seven points.  This is a drop-in evening but you need to have your name tag in by 6 p.m. for inclusion.

June starts off with a full slate of 32 teams in the Scotch Pairs Open Tournament as the players come from the other clubs in the zone.  In this event,  the players change from rolling the first bowls to rolling the last bowls on alternate ends.

It is not too late to come down and try the game.  The coaches and players are always willing to help a newcomer.
