Special to the Record

The Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club is in the last month of the season, but the action is still keen and the greens are really mean.

Tuesday Ladies Pairs played their final game on Tuesday, Sept. 6 and the results are: 1st Pat Chambers and Helen Ryley and runners-up are Janet Butler and Carole Nelson.

Wednesday Triples have one more week to go (to Sept. 14) and Friday Aggregate will go until the daylight gives out.

Winners of the Webber Singles were Vern Greenhill and runner-up Melie Ursulom with Archie Harris in third place, but Archie came through with wife, Linda, in the Mixed Pairs and finished up his final games to take the lead from Vern Greenhill and April Gilchrist.

These two teams would be the representatives to the Zone Mixed Pairs event in Parksville on Sept. 17-18,  but a substitute may have to be arranged. Games chair Pete Harding is working on that.

Speaking of zone tournaments, the CLBC is tremendously  proud of our Singles entrants, particularly Melie Ursulom and Henri Saucier, who came home with gold medals and the trophies in Novice Men’s Singles and Ladies Singles.

Melie Ursulom and Vern Greenhill were “in the money” at the Canaccord Pairs in Nanaimo Aug. 28-29 and with Archie Harris also got sixth place at the George Gibson Triples in Parksville Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. Pat Cutt, Jackie West and Doug Bell had the same three wins and one loss record but the number of ends won was the tiebreaker.

The Veggie and Skins tournament on Labour Day was very well attended with a potluck dinner after. The regular game winners were: 1st Lyndon James, Janet Butler and Betty Cartwright; 2nd Jack West, Gaynor Bereza and Sherran Kirby;  3rd Helen Ryley, Peter Cartwright and Linda Harris.

For the Skins game: 1st Vern Greenhill, Carole Nelson and Lucie Wood; 2nd Archie Harris, Bev Hambley and Henri Saucier; 3rd Chad Kelly, Sandi Tonnellier and Glen Heaton.

Saturday, Sept. 10  will be the Carnival Day Fundraiser for the expansion of the clubhouse, starting at 9 a.m. with a pancake breakfast followed by an assortment of games of singles, doubles, triples and fours to be played by different members of a team of four. Lots of fun events between the more formal games to raise some cash.


Canadian  Senior Triples in Port Alberni kicked off Wednesday, Sept. 7 with Island bowlers Keith Terlsen, Anne and David Mathie and David Muir in the thick of things.
