The Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club hosted the McPherson Realty Group mixed fours tournament this past weekend under perfect conditions all weekend.

Competition at the tournament was just as good as the weather over the weekend as two teams went undefeated all the way through to the finals.

Only one could remain unbeaten in the end and it was the Nanaimo team of Vern Hagstrom, June Meaning, Anne Ashdown and Ed Penuik who took home the McPherson Group trophy for their big first place finish.

Second place went to the — almost undefeated — team of Brent and Susi Merchant, Henriette and Eric Ballinger, from Oak Bay.

Two Parksville teams took third and fourth spots at the tournament.

Bob and Joyce Findlay, Andy Burton and Dolores Adams finished third, while Alan Brunskill, Kate Wilson, Keith and Cheryl Baker finished fourth.

All together, teams from Victoria, Port Alberni, Nanaimo, Courtenay and Parksville all came to join the local teams from Qualicum Beach at their fine facility for a weekend full of fun lawn bowling under sunny skies.
