It may have been cold and wet outside, but that certainly didn’t dampen the spirits of the 36 players that turned out at the Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club last weekend for the first of four indoor tournaments.

Taking first overall in the 12-team Mixed Triples tourney was the Qualicum team of Martin Sichert, Ruth Brodie and Bill Davenport “with some good consistent bowling.”

The team of Vern Hagstrom and Judy Ritchey (Nanaimo) and Keith Baker (Parksville) finished second, and third place went to Kate Wilson and May Mackay (Nanaimo) and David Childs (Qualicum).

“In conjunction with the tournament we held a non-perishable food drive to aid the Salvation Army,”  QBLBC’s Jane Nielsen said after, adding “we had a wonderful response from the bowlers and it is nice to know that someone less fortunate than ourselves will be helped out over the Christmas season.”

Also earning props from club president Carol Chapman for their contributions were June and John Meaning for organizing the event.
