Special to the Record

Courtenay lawn bowlers went south last week and got firsts, so we took more bowlers and went back for seconds, and that is what we got.

Pat Cutt, Helen Ryley and Melie Ursulom got second in the A event of Ladies Triples in Qualicum, June 21-22,  Vern Greenhill,  Dean Penny and Henri Saucier got second in the B event of Mens Triples, and Jackie West, Carolle Allen and Sandy Tonnellier got second in the D event.

Other travellers went to Nanaimo for the Interclub league Monday, June 23 and that event has wound up very even,  with all four clubs, in both Men’s and Ladies’ events are tied with four points each after two sessions.

At home,  the Men’s Pairs have Dean Penny and Don Wiseman in the lead.  Ladies’ Pairs have a gridlock at six points with two weeks to go.

Webber singles, with some games yet to be played, have Dean Penny, Vern Greenhill and Peter Harding leading the way.

In Thursday 2-4-2 , Vern Greenhill and Melie Ursulom are demonstrating “How it is done” and John Kendall and Ernie Kassian are taking lessons well, staying close on their heels.

In Wednesday Triples League, Peter Harding’s team has lost only one game of seven and the teams skipped by Dean Penny and Frank Lo are showing two losses in seven games.

Coming up: Carnival on June 29 has a full complement of 16 teams of four players all set to play some fun games, enjoy a pancake breakfast and help raise money for clubhouse renovations. Thanks to all those who contributed items for the silent auction and prizes.

July 1 will have a barbecue and games. Don’t forget to sign up so that the organizers can be prepared. Wear red and white. July 11-13 will see Courtenay host the Provincial Ladies Triples.  Winners progress to Nationals in August.
