32 teams of ladies and gents gathered to have 10 games over 2 days at the Juan de Fuca Lawn Bowling Club to raise funds for Cancer. Saturday was a beautiful day followed by Sunday (we actually were able to play the first two sets of games without rain, not so lucky with the 3rd set). A lot of fun was had by all and for a great cause!
The team who came 2nd out of 32 winning 9 out of 10 games was
Barry Ming (captain) Diane Smith Pete Smith Josie Tan Al Thomson Dorothy Verge
Two of our Novices competed in the tournament at Burnside this past weekend. From David Gardner:
“Jim Wakeham had a good tournament. He had a tough draw especially on the first day but manages to win 3 out of 5 games. He had a good shot spread and finished 5th. Out of 14 players. One place out of the play offs.
We also managed to get Ken Wiens (the come back kid) in the tournament. He won 2 out of 5 games. He gave his opponents an 8-9 shot start in a couple of games but came back to win 1 but narrowly lose the other.”
It was great to see our bowling friends from a variety of BSI clubs over 3 beautiful days on an incredible green! Many thanks to Dennis Verge for the organization and execution and all the club members that made the tournament a successful and very memorable event! Lots of food, beverage, prizes and good fun.
Gordon Head once again wins the title in a playoff against Oak Bay. Jill Foster’s bowl decided the win. Congrats to everyone who participated in this worthy cause. Lots of fun and enjoyment had by all!
