The heat goes on for Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club members.  Vern Greenhill, Archie Harris and Melie Ursulom went through the Nanaimo’s Gold Bowl with four wins in five games to take third in the “A” event.  Chad Kelly, Janet Butler and Pat Cutt and Peter Harding, Cath Wiseman and Dean Penny also made a creditable showing in a tough competition.

Next travelling event will be the Men`s and Ladies Triples in Parksville on July 30-31. We have two Ladies’ teams entered but no Men`s teams.

Gather up your wide brim hats and blue jeans and get ready for the Applebee`s Fours on Aug. 6-7. Country western is the theme for Courtenay`s final Open tournament of the year.

Locally, the Mixed Triples on Wednesday night has finished the first round and the second session got underway on July 27. Winners of the first half were Jackie West, with Helen Ryley and Peter Cartwright; runner-up was Mike MacDonell (Archie Harris while Mike was in hospital) Bill Brazie and Marguerite Sklarchuk.

Mixed Pairs have completed their schedule but there are a few games yet to be played as injuries have slowed things down. This is a qualifying tournament for zone championships so the finish is very important. At the moment, Vern Greenhill and April Gilchrist lead with 12 points with Archie and Linda Harris and Pat Cutt and Bob Dargie each having 10 points.

Friday Aggregate leaders are Peter Cartwright with 17 points, Dean Penny with 16, Mike MacDonell is still hanging on with 15 points and then the Ladies start with the pressure at 14 points are Linda Meers, Marguerite Sklarchuk and Bob Engisch.

Webber Singles are still a tight race with Vern leading the way with 16 points,  Archie pushing him along with 14 points and Melie Ursulom and Pete Harding are not letting them get too much distance as they each have 12 points.

Mens and Ladies Pairs started July 26 so will report on that at a later date.

 

Holiday Monday in August has some fun games for the Six Pack; sign-up sheet is in the clubhouse so that the organizers have some idea how many to prepare for.  Fun days are full of food and laughs!
