Locals mow down lawn bowling foes

Qualicum Beach quartet wins top spot in local club's Mixed 4s lawn bowling tournament

The local team of Bob and Joyce Findlay, Joe Randazzo and Pam Coward claimed the top spot last weekend in the McPherson Group Mixed Fours lawn bowling tournament at Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club.

The annual North Island District tourney drew more than 100 bowlers from clubs in Parksville Qualicum Beach, Courtenay, Nanaimo and Port Alberni.

Prizes were awarded to the top five place-winners.

Second place went to the Nanaimo squad of Vern Hagstrom, Sue Artuso, David Pearcey and Trish Higgins. Third place was claimed by a mixed Parksville/Qualicum Beach team made up of Ken Wellwood, Janice Baird, Ken Davies and Merry Danarti.

Courtenay took fourth-place with the team of Dick and Heather Devine, John Larner and Shelley McCallum. The fifth spot went to another mixed team, with Keith Terlson, Pat Cutt, Bill Burgess and Lynn Chwartacki representing Parksville, Courtenay and Qualicum Beach.

The mixed tournament was co-sponsored by McPherson Group Realty and investment advisor Todd Sjogren.

The next tournament at Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club is the Sylvia Gibb Open Ladies Pairs, June 10-11. The same weekend, Parksville Lawn Bowling Club will host its Classic Open Men’s Triples Tournament, June 10-12.
