Singles District Titles Decided in Port Alberni
Port Alberni was home to some great lawn bowling on superb greens this past weekend (September 2 & 3). The weather cooperated as well, although Saturday was challenging because of the heat. In the end, the five game series came down to two winners. On the women’s side, it was Robin Forrest of Port Alberni who took first and earned the title as District champion. April Gilchrist of Courtenay came second, and our own Chris Fereday took third. On the men’s side, it was Vern Hagstrom of Nanaimo winning the crown, while our own Rick Dolley came second, beating out the third place finisher, Peter Scott, also of Parksville. Thanks to all who came out to play, and those who came out to watch.
Just a reminder that the District Pairs finals will be coming up in two weeks time (September 16 & 17)and also in Port Alberni. The highway is now fully open, so we look forward to seeing you out there. Ken and Carol Bucyk as well as Chris and Martin Fereday will be representing our home club of Parksville.
