2012 Funtastic Mixed Triples

The Vernon Lawn Bowling Club was host to their 14th Annual, Funtastic - Mixed Triples Lawn Bowling Tournament over the "Canada Day" long weekend.

Twenty teams from throughout the Province entered this years event.

As was expected, the competition was keen, but the emphasis on play is to have "FUN"!

For the most part, the weather co-operated throughout the weekend, with the exception of a "torrential downpour" during play on Saturday afternoon. However, the competitors spirits were soon lifted as the spectators entertained them with a "Fan Wave"!
Play wrapped up under warm and sunny "Canada Day" skies with an abundance of our national colors being displayed on the green.

During the mid-day break, everyone was treated with a delicious piece of a "Happy Canada Day" cake.
Also, during the day, everyone was entertained by the activities going on within Polson Park, especially the live music coming from the nearby band shell. In fact, it was observed a number of competitors were "rocking and singing" to the music during the play of their games!

As play resumed, the Winners and Runner Ups in the five Flights were determined.
