Bright Future Ahead for Novice and Intermediate Singles

August 6, 2023

Parksville Lawn Bowling Club

This past weekend was  perhaps one of the most entertaining  Novice & Intermediate Tournaments held at our club.  The morning and afternoon games on August 5 & 6th saw players go to upwards of 20 ends to get their 15 points, with a number of games being tied 14-14, and only one bowl making the difference to moving on in the event.  In the end, four club members were crowned winners and will have their names engraved on the respective trophies.  On the Novice side, It was Bob Ashton and Pam Oldfield taking the honours.  On  the Intermediate side, it was Bob Merrell  and Joey Merrell.   These  four winners will be moving on to play in the District Novice and Singles Tournaments to be held in Parksville on September 9 and 10.   Congratulations are also in order for Bob, Joey and Bob Allaby who were busy last  weekend picking up a second place finish in the Powell River  Mixed Triples Competition.


A big thank you goes out to the set up crews, markers, umpires, kitchen staff, bartenders, games committee,  flag folks and Barry Conn who was busy doing  photography for me for this article.   Thanks to everyone who came out, watched and supported the novices and intermediate players during this event.  Also, we’d like to thank the players who stepped out, gave it a go and had the opportunity of playing in this tournament.  We hope they had fun and had a great experience as well.


If you’re looking for something interesting to do this week, the Senior Provincials Tournaments are  being held.  You’ll find our women’s teams competing in Nanaimo and the men will be in Port Alberni.  Good luck, everyone!  Games are at 10 A.M., 1:15 P.M. 4 P.M. on Tuesday.  On Wednesday, they are at 9 A.M., 12:15 P.M. and 3 P.M.  On Thursday, August 10th, there is a 9 A.M. game and the medal round begins at 12:30.  Gold and Silver medallists will represent B.C. at the Canadian Lawn Bowling Championship in Edmonton.
