Courtenay lawn bowlers just keep on winning!

Vern Greenhill and April Gilchrist along with Carol Nelson and Peter Harding represented Courtenay in Powell River for the North Island and Powell River Zone Mixed Pairs on Sept. 14-15. Vern and April won all four of their games and then had to play the final  against Powell River’s Bob and Eileen Milsom.

In the rain, thunder and fog,  Vern and April came through to bring home yet another zone medal for 2013. This gives the Courtenay club three of the five gold available and two silver.

Vern Greenhill was not done yet. On Sept. 18-19 he gathered Dean Penny, Jackie West and Melie Ursulom and travelled to Port Alberni for the very first Mixed Fours event at that venue and won all their games to be the first names on that trophy.

The Club Scotch Pairs event was next on Sept. 21-22, and Melie Ursulom and Gary Rhindress came through as defending champions with a sound seven of eight available points. Melie”s name has appeared on that trophy seven times.

Ross Younger and Rosemary Montreuil came up second with a good six-point showing and highest net shot to outscore Dean Penny and Helen Ryley,  Martine Castellani, Gary Carson and Susan Toresdahl (Gary had to go to work),  Bev and Dave Hambley, and Cec Shaw, Frank Lo and Susan Toresdahl.  Yes, Susan played on two teams as a general spare. We make good use of those who are willing.

Saturday,  Sept. 28 is our Carnival.  This is a fundraiser for our building expansion and there are 16 teams of four participating in a variety of short games to keep the day moving.  Marine Harvest Canada is providing a salmon barbecue between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and that is open to the public at a cost of $5. A good opportunity to watch some pairs bowling while enjoying lunch.  There will also be hot dogs available for those who prefer something other than salmon.

There will be a silent auction and raffle table inside the clubhouse.  Players will have a pancake breakfast available before bowling.  Come and enjoy our Carnival bowling event of the year.

Sunday,  Sept. 29 will be open bowling in the afternoon,  followed by a potluck dinner and barbecue, followed by awards night where we present trophies and such and show our appreciation to all those who help to make our season successful.  Bring your own plate and  utensils.
