After a three-year absence, the Parksville vs Qualicum Beach Challenge trophy has returned to Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club.
In a one-day competition featuring a 14-end game in Parksville before lunch, then a second game at Qualicum Beach afterward, the four mixed triples teams from QBLBC outpointed their Parksville counterparts 26-20 to claim the trophy.
It had spent the last three years in Parksville before the handover during a ceremony following the match in Qualicum Beach.
The friendly rivalry between the clubs has been a tradition since 1995.
