The 2014 Vancouver Island Carpet Bowling Championships, hosted by the Qualicum Beach Carpet Bowlers Club, took place at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre recently.

Teams who had previously won their play-offs in the north, south and mid-Island zones, competed in three categories: fours, triples and pairs for gold, silver and bronze medal honours to wrap up the Island spring season.

Top honours in the fours and pairs were awarded to teams from the mid-Island but in the triples category the Qualicum Beach team of Chris Vanderstoep, Glenn Howell and Eloina Greenwood, won gold and another local team — from the Lighthouse Club, John Lock, Dennis Kenwright and Ted Humphrey — won silver.

The Qualicum Beach Club’s regular bowling season ends on April 30 but they will be sponsoring a “drop-in” program during the summer on Monday and Wednesday afternoons at the Civic Centre, starting at 12:45 p.m.

Visitors are always welcome to come and try the game out. No experience is necessary and free instruction is always available. For more information, call Maggie 250-752-1156.
