Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club has completed another successful season. Membership numbers have grown and the new members have already demonstrated a fine and enthusiastic attitude toward the game and also the club’s objectives.

On Sept. 29, 17 members turned out to “put the green to bed,” which involves aerating, sanding and reseeding and a lot of shovel work, wheelbarrows, gathering benches, and folding away the awnings. Many hands make light work and that principle was well demonstrated.

The awards dinner was very well attended and only three or four recipients were not present to receive the congratulations of the other members.

The success of the season was amply demonstrated as the Courtenay club executive captured the President’s Cup Zone trophy and Melie Ursulom and Henri Saucier brought home two (Ladies Singles and Novice Men’s) of the other five available so we have 50 per cent of the Zone trophies.

Vern Greenhill also brought home a bronze medal from Provincial Men’s pairs.  Final winners of the Friday Night Aggregate were Dean Penny 40 points, Peter Cartwright 32, Archie Harris 29, Bill Brazie 28 and Linda Meers 27.

The club has a goal of fundraising to help with renovation and expansion of the clubhouse and the first big event on Sept. 10 raised triple what the organizers expected with some major assistance from members and the business community. A huge thank you to those generous folk and also to our Open tournament sponsors.

On Sept. 23 a variety of newcomers to the Valley and some NIDES workers tried the game and we hope to see them back in the spring with friends. Farewell was offered to coach Mike MacDonell as he leaves to live in Abbotsford.
