The trio of Bob Findlay, Joyce Findlay and Joe Randazzo rolled to victory Sunday as the Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club wrapped up its 2015-16 indoor season with the Qualicum Foods Mixed Triples tournament.

Spectators were treated to some great bowling over the two-day competition, which drew eleven mixed teams of players from Nanaimo, Parksville and Qualicum Beach. At stake was the coveted QF trophy and a variety of cash prizes.

The runner-up team was Doug Ives’ team of Liz Pendleton and Dean Thomson. In the third-place match, John Eyre’s team of Pam Coward and Ken Davies topped the team of Ken Wellwood, Merryi Denarti and Drew Braid. Each of the top four-placing teams receiving cash prizes.
