Parksville welcomed players from across the Island and took four of the six top positions with two teams from Nanaimo playing spoiler for the sweep. Both Aaron Nicklen of Coast Realty and George Gibson made presentations to the winners.

The winners and first in the late draw were Rick Quibell, Lynne Chwartacki and Mary Mulligan of Nanaimo. In second in the late draw were Rod and Frances Tester with Dean Thompson, of Nanaimo. Rounding out third was Parksville’s Diane Proctor with Rick and Lynne Britz.

The early draw was an all Parksville affair. First was the team of Chris and Martin Fereday and Keith Baker. Coming in second were Art and Jeanette Fereguson with Jon Lansdowne. In third was the team of Dave Cole with Bob Mascho and Brenda Gorman.

Next for the club is the wrap up tournament on Sept. 28 and awards dinner on the 29th. Sept. 30 will see the greens put to bed for the winter.
