Lawn bowling times two

Men’s and women’s tournaments keep everyone bowling

Carol Bucyk prepares for a bowl during action this past weekend in Qualicum Beach. Both clubs in Parksville and Qualicum Beach were busy with games all weekend long for the Sylvia Gibb (Qualicum Beach) and Bluenose Motor (Parksville) tournament.

There were plenty of smiles and close games this weekend in Parksville and Qualicum Beach, as lawn bowling clubs in each were busy with games under beautiful skies.

In Qualicum Beach, sixteen women’s teams came to play in the second annual Sylvia Gibb Tournament, this year in support of Haven House.

In the end, it was the Port Alberni team of Robin Forest and Elaine Van Kooten who took first with a record of 4­0. Qualicum’s Lynn Chwartacki and Jane Nielsen came in second, while Parksville’s Sandi Mitchell and Jeanette Ferguson took third.

In Parksville, the men were hard at it in the Bluenose Motors Men’s Triples Classic. Again, there were sixteen teams involved in the three-day event and by Sunday afternoon; it was set for the final four.

Winners in the “B” Consolation were Parksville’s team of Keith Baker, Jim Muir and Rick Dolley (skip) who beat out Nanaimo’s John Randle, Eric Spaulding and Jimmy Mueller (skip).

Winners of the tournament were the hard working team of Henri Saucier, Dean Penny and skip, Vern Greenhill of Courtenay who came from behind to beat the powerful Nanaimo team of Ed Bryce, Dean Thompson and Tom Renton (skip).

Money raised from that tournament will go to the Oceanside Hospice Society.

Next up: The Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club Men’s and Women’s Open Triples June 19 to 20 and the Parksville Open Mixed Pairs June 26­ to 28.
