With a spot on the line to play in the Canadian Nationals, taking place in Ontario, there were 16 teams on the green at the Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club, starting with the elimination round on Friday.

The winning teams advanced to play on Saturday, hoping to earn a spot in the finals on Sunday.

The team of Steven Santana (S. Vancouver), Derek Kaufman (Courtenay), Joe Hunt (Coquitlam) and Tim Mason (W. Vancouver) earned first place in the provincials and will represent B.C. at the nationals.

Silver went to the team of James MacGown (Kerrisdale), Jon Braun (Kerrisdale), Bob Scott (S. Vancouver) and Michael Leong (Granville Park). The bronze medal went to the team of German Santana (Burnside), George Cubiss (Maple Ridge), Kin On Lau (Richmond) and Duncan Burke (Parksville).

Spectators enjoyed some spectacular bowling throughout the tournament. The crew at the Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club worked hard to make sure the greens and grounds were in tip-top shape, earning praise from visiting teams as to how good of shape the facility was in.
