Under sunny Okanagan skies, the Vernon Lawn Bowling Club hosted it’s 13th Annual, Funtastic - Mixed Triples Lawn Bowling Tournament over the Canada Day long weekend, July 1st - 3rd, 2011.

Twenty teams registered for the event, two of which came from Vancouver Island (the Nanaimo LBC & the Parksville LBC). The balance of the field was made up of teams from throughout the Interior lawn bowling clubs.

The participants and guests were encouraged to wear colors over the weekend, noting RED was the preferred color of choice on July 1st. What a lovely sight it was, enhanced by the singing of our National Anthem, “Oh Canada” prior to the start of play on Friday, as led by Mrs. Bea Monk.

The Club hosted a Hospitality Nite on Friday evening, along with a Pizza Nite on  Saturday evening for those wishing to attend. This is a time to let loose and get to know your fellow bowlers on a more sociable basis.

As was to be expected, the competition was keen, noting all teams involved played 2 - 12 end games, each day of the competition through to the Finals, which were played on Sunday afternoon.

That being said though, the emphasis of this tournament is to “Have Fun” - and that we did!

Thanks goes out to all of our sponsors and of course the many volunteers who tirelessly work behind the scenes to ensure the success of this annual event. It truly has become one of the most prestigious tournaments to attend in the Interior during the lawn bowling season.

The Executive and Members of the Vernon LBC look forward to hosting next year’s tournament, and we look forward to your coming at that time.
