With another successful open house under its belt, it was time for the Parksville Lawn Bowling Club to kick off its 2018 regular season.

First-place winners of the early draw were: Merry Danarti, Tex Gooding and Markey Pellow. Second went to Chris Fereday, David Agar and Terry Nicholls. Third place went to Martin Fereday, Murray Sinclair and Gladys Kinsman.

Late draw winners are as follows: Keith Terlson, Penny Bhangi and Chuck Benson came in first, while second went to the team of Andy Burton, Lorraine Canning and Robbie Thomas.

Third place was earned by Anne Holland, Clive Arthorne and Colleen Drain.
