Parksville Club Tops in District Pairs Championship

Chris and Martin Fereday capturing the Silver Medal in the tournament.

Port Alberni played host to the final big tournament of the year this past weekend (Sept. 16 & 17), and three of the top four teams came out of our club.  Winning the North Vancouver Island & Powell River District Pairs Championship was the team of Carol and Ken Bucyk.   They defeated the team of Chris and Martin Fereday in a nail biter which was determined on the final bowl of the last end of the game.  In the end, the Bucyk team won 15-13, and  took home gold medals and  the District trophy.  Chris and Martin Fereday took home the silver medal for the second place finish.  In third was the father daughter team of Eric and Luci Ewen of Qualicum Beach.  Merry Danarti and Bob Allaby,  who were last year’s defending champions, finished in fourth.

Many thanks go out to the Port Alberni club for their efforts this year.  The greens were superb, the kitchen staff and all the behind the scenes folks made it a very positive experience.  Thanks to Dean Penny, the District Games Chair for his work this year, as to all the games people in all the clubs who worked so hard to make these games happen.  Thanks also to those who came out to watch, and to those who came to play.  Happy “off-season” to all and enjoy a much needed break.
