Parksville Women Shine in Qualicum

There was a little sun, a little rain and a whole lot of success for the Parksville women’s teams playing in Qualicum Beach this past weekend.   The Sylvia Gibb Tournament, sponsored by Katherine Wilk of Royal LePage drew a number of women’s teams from around the district, with the Parksville women claiming four of the top six spots.

Number one went to the winning team of Diane Cruickshank and Ann Holland, while number two went to the  Qualicum Beach mother-daughter team of Luci and Suzanne Ewen.  In third place was our own Luise Norman and Sue Tompkins.  Kathleen Sherry and Karen Ungar of Nanaimo took fourth.  Sandi Mitchell and Karen Perrin earned a fifth place finish while Roberta Stets and Jeanette Ferguson rounded out the winning side with a sixth place finish.


On behalf of the Parksville Lawn Bowling Club, we’d like to thank the good folks at Qualicum including the kitchen crew, the groundskeepers, bartenders who kept us hydrated , Garry Campbell for the music, photos, bar and those really cool looking tights.    We’d also like to extend a thank you to the Ewen family who took on this tournament to run it, and to Katherine Wilk  of Royal Lepage for her sponsorship.

We Want You to Have Some Fun!!! Calling All Tenderfoot and Novice Players

This is the time of year when things really get underway in the lawn bowls community with all kinds of opens, tourneys etc., BUT there is only one event  designed specifically for tenderfoot and novice players.   This year, we are looking for people who want to HAVE FUN, PLAY ON A TEAM,  and are either a TENDERFOOT (those who began playing in 2021 or later) and NOVICES (those who started this year).    Teams are comprised of two tenderfoot players and one novice.  It’s a great way to get on the green and play with people with a similar skill set and who, just  like you, want to enjoy the game and have some fun doing it.   If this tweaks your interest, even just a little, go to and check it out.


Bartender Volunteers


Our club’s success relies on volunteerism. The bar is currently in need of a couple of new bartenders that are able to take on a couple of shifts each month. The only requirement is that you must have a valid “Serve it Right” certificate to work behind the bar. If you do not already have one, there is an online course that can be taken, and upon successful completion the club will reimburse you (approx. $37).
If you are interested and able to volunteer your time, I would love to hear back from you.

Our Calendar has Changed!!

Due to the problems some cell phone users were having with time zones we have changed the format, that we hope you will find cleaner and easier to use!

All events are now preceded by either the start time of the event, or “All Day” for full day events, and the “Local Time:….” is gone.

As always, for the additional details of the event click on the event to open it.

Hope you like the new look.
