Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club hosts first indoor tournament of season

The Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club took play indoors last weekend with its first tournament of the 2016-17 indoor season.

The mixed triples tourney drew 18 players from Qualicum Beach, Parksville and Nanaimo to Vancouver Island’s only indoor lawn bowling facility for the two days of play.

The team of skip Ken Davies, Ruby Bishop-Ryan, Pat Reid and substitute Barb Radcliffe prevailed in a playdown to claim top honours in the tourney. The team outduelled Martin Fereday’s team of Dean Thompson and Susanna Commadina in a playdown pitting the top finishers in each six-team pool.

The results were decided from a play-down between the first and second placed teams from the two groups of six teams, 18 bowlers.

In the third and fourth place match, the team of Charles MacIntyre, Merry Danarti and Alan Burrows won the bronze over Brenda Edwards, Richard Brind and Doug Fisher.

The tournament followed the club’s annual Halloween Olympics, a well-attended day of fun and costumed frivolity featuring seven different “sports”.

The indoor green is open from September through March, and new members are welcome. Newcomers may try out the sport for free; to learn more or to sign up, visit www.qblbc.com.
