Courtenay lawn bowlers continue to be busy and successful.

Zone 2 Men’s Pairs and Women’s Pairs for the Senior Games in Kamloops were both from the Courtenay club and came home with medals: bronze for Peter Harding and John Kendall while Pat Cutt and Irene Whitehouse captured silver.

Vern Greenhill, Dean Penny and Martine Castellani and Pat Cutt, Al Hopwood and Sandy Tonnellier participated in the Bowls BC Cash Triples in Port Alberni, Aug. 17-18, but two wins and two losses wasn’t good enough for any of the prize money.

Vern Greenhill and April Gilchrist won all four of their games at the Aug. 24-25 Canaccord Mixed Pairs in Nanaimo for a second-place finish. Tom Renton and Emily Lawson of Nanaimo won by the numbers of points scored.

The Club Mixed Pairs wound up on Aug. 28,  with Vern and April taking first place. There are still a few games to be played with some points on the line for other placements.  We  send three teams to Powell River for the Zone Championship in September so those numbers are critical.

There are some very interesting variety games coming up in September while our green is bowling so well after the hot summer.

We also have the Club Scotch Pairs and the Carnival coming up near the end of September.  This long weekend has Movie Night on the Aug. 30, Club Singles play on Aug. 30 and Sept. 1. Markers are need for this event.

The Zone Singles will be in Courtenay Sept. 7-8. Peter Harding and Michael Lynch and April Gilchrist with Sandy Tonnellier will be off to Stanley Park Sept. 7-8 for the Bowls BC Champion of Champions Pairs event as a reward for winning the Club Men’s and Women’s Pairs.
