Parksville lawn bowling: men v. women

The Parksville Lawn Bowling Club held their annual men’s and women’s triples tournament last weekend, with the two day event showcasing some very happy winners.

On the women’s side it was Cheryl Baker, Bev Beaith and Lucille Picard taking the big prize for first place in the tournament.

The team of Dorothy Johnson, Susan Paterson and Jane Worel took second. Rounding out the top three was the team of Pat Goodwin, Jeanette Ferguson and Anne Gibson.

On the men’s side, it was Martin Fereday, Joe Stemler and Ken Soothill who took home first.

Second went to Bob Findlay, Gil Simpson and Lucky Butterworth. In third, it was Ken Bucyk, Peter Zboyovsky and Keith Gibson.

The coveted Salmon Can Trophy a.k.a. Battle of the Sexes was the finale to the weekend event.

The top three men’s and women’s teams played a three end, aggregate total score mini­game.

There was lots of noisemaking, hooting and cheers coming from the crowd as the women attempted to get their name on the cup after being shut out last year.

Much to the disappointment of the women of the club, the guys prevailed yet again, in a wildly lopsided victory.

The PLBC is hosting their Shades of Pink Tournament on August 13 in support of cancer patients in the Oceanside area.

The event is slated to start around 9 a.m. with lots of bowling and fundraising for patient care.

There will also be a barber on premises for anyone looking to cool off for the rest of summer with a nice, shaved head in support of cancer patients.
