Sea Soil Classic rolls this weekend

Lawn bowling action set for Parksville on Friday afternoon

From the desk of tournament organizer Gary Robinson: a reminder the sixth annual Sea Soil Classic gets underway  Friday 2 p.m. at the Parksville Lawn Bowling Club, with the second match to start at 5 p.m.

Play on Saturday includes games at 9 a.m., 12:15 p.m. and 5 p.m.  According to Robinson 16 top men’s triples teams have entered this year, with eight teams in both the A and B events.

Parksville teams have dominated the competition over the past two years, and previous winning skips (Stu MacNaughton and Robinson who won the A Event titles in 2011, 2010 respectively, and Art Ferguson (B Event winner in ‘11) will all be back.

“Another important feature of the event is fund-raising on behalf of the Oceanside Hospice Society,” said Robinson, pointing out a number of excellent prizes have been donated by local businesses and members, “so be sure to get your tickets in the draw for late on Saturday.”

A brief skills competition in the mid-afternoon on Saturday ($5 per entry) will help raise money. The top four teams in each event will advance to Sunday’s playoffs with game times of 9 a.m., 12:15 p.m. and 3 p.m.
