Parksville teams dominate at triples tournament

The Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club recently hosted the Qualicum Foods Ladies and Men’s Triples Tournament.

There were 16 ladies teams and 16 men’s teams from throughout the North Island District that came out to compete.

The tournament, as always, was very competitive and gave spectators a show of very good bowling. The finals of each section were all closely fought and several went right down to the wire with a final-end tiebreaker.

The winning teams were; Ladies ‘A’: 1. Dolores Adams, Diane Proctor, Bev Beaith, Parksville; 2. Pam Coward, Joyce Findlay, Leone King, Qualicum.

Ladies ‘B”: 1. Helen Roberts, Helena Poland, Zuitka Hundley, Qualicum; 2. Roberta Stets, Janys Milne, Bobbi Cyr, Parksville.

Men’s ‘A’: 1. Rick Dolley, Dana Atchison, Jim Muir, Parksville; 2. Stephen Forrest, Jake VanKooten, Bob Steven, Port Alberni.

Men’s ‘B’: 1. Bob Findlay, Dean Thompson, Joe Fairhurst, Qualicum; 2. Mike Ward, James MacDonald, Bruce Duckworth, Qualicum.

Great competition, great bowling, great food and great weather. An all-around great weekend for competitors and spectators.
