Special to the Record
Courtenay Lawn Bowling is getting ready to wind down for the season, but not quite yet….we still have a few events to complete.
The Wednesday Triples League has a tight race at the top with one more Wednesday to go, and it will be the battle of the spares, with eight spares filling in for absentees as Courtenay has the Men’s Pairs of Michael Lynch/Ross Younger (the Down Under Boys), the Ladies’ Pairs of Pat Cutt/ Melie Ursulom, and the Mixed Triples Cath and Don Wiseman with Irene Whitehouse, representing Zone 2 at the BC Seniors Games in Langley. The Mixed Fours team is from Nanaimo. Other members Ernie Kassian and John Marinus will be participating in other events.
Mixed Pairs has been completed with Archie and Linda Harris taking the honours with Ernie and Carolyn Kassian edging out April Gilchrist and Vern Greenhill by one more end won. Courtenay will have three teams in the Zone Mixed Pairs on Sept. 20-21 as Vern and April will attend as defending champions.
Vern will take along Michael Lynch and April will take Ann Kwaznitza to the Champion of Champions event in Victoria, Sept. 13-14. This is a provincial event for club champions and one bowler on the team must have three years or less experience.
The Club Scotch Pairs will be held Sept. 13-14.
The Canadian Championship of Mixed Pairs will be happening in Parksville during the week of Sept. 8-13. Teams from across the country will be competing. There is a banquet and dance on Friday, Sept. 12 that is open to the public at $35 per person.
Greenhill brought home the silver medal from the Zone Singles in Qualicum, Sept. 6-7. Port Alberni’s Steve and Robin Forrest took home the gold in both Men’s and Ladies Singles.
