The Parksville Lawn Bowling Club was into the spirit over the Canada Day long weekend with its annual Tenderfoot Triples Event.

Taking first overall at last weekend's tournament at PLBC were May Mackay Chuck Rogerson and Marian Wallace.

The Parksville Lawn Bowling Club was into the spirit last weekend, marking the Canada Day long weekend with its annual Tenderfoot Triples Event.

According to PLBC’s Carol Bucyk 48 players on 16 teams took part in the tourney, open to players with four years experience or less.

“The twist was that one novice (new to the sport this year) bowler had to be a part of each team,” Bucyk said, adding “there was great action under perfect conditions for this tournament which is one that draws players from up and down the Island.”

In the early draw the team of Vern Hagstrom, Ed Bryce and Denise Barrass from Nanaimo took first place. Second went to Ken and Diane Olenick, and Denis Ethier from Parksville while Qualicum Beach’s Vera Gebhardt, Nancy Blue and Lorraine Maxwell were third.

In the late draw, Nanaimo came through again with first place for the team of Chuck Rogerson, May Mackay and Marian Wallace. Second belonged to Doreen Nordentoft, Bo Jensen and Geoff Woollatt.  Third was taken by Ann and Keith Gibson and Hilary Lansdown.

The overall winner for the tournament was the Chuck Rogerson team of Nanaimo.

GAME ON:  The huge 96 player Parksville Open Mixed Pairs competition takes place this weekend.
