Playing through every imaginable weather condition last weekend, except snow, bowlers at the Parksville Lawn Bowling Club faced lots of challenges in the B.C. Cash Bowls Tournament.

• 1st: Bob Findlay, Joyce Findlay and Jim McDonald (Qualicum Beach)
• 2nd: Stephen Forrest, Robin Forrest and Alison Merryfield (Port Alberni)
• 3rd: Mick Banks, Gerry Murphy and Nancy Blue (QB)
