Lawn bowling season rolling to a close


Club activities have concluded at the Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club.  What a season and what a finish.

Senior Games saw our Down Under Boys, Ross Younger and Michael Lynch, take the silver medals in men’s pairs with a perfect record in the games they played. There was some confusion with the schedule so they missed one game. Pat Cutt and Melie Ursulom brought home the bronze medal in ladies’ pairs.

At home,  Dean Penny, Helen Ryley and Rosemary Montreuil  won the Wednesday mixed triples’ second half with a 7-1 record. Bill Whitehouse, Bev Hambley and Ernie Kassian were in second  at 6-2.

The Scotch Pairs Club event had 12 teams participating. The winners were Helen Ryley and Tom Higgins, with Bill and Irene Whitehouse in second, Archie and Linda Harri third, and Pat Cutt and Dan Bereza fourth. All of these teams  had three wins and one loss for a truly great tournament.

We have the Zone Mixed Pairs Championship yet to be played in Nanaimo this weekend, with Carolyn and Ernie Kassian and one more team representing our club while April Gilchrist and Vern Greenhill will defend their title from 2013.

Awards night will be Saturday, Oct. 4 at the clubhouse with more info to follow.
