VERNON, BC-- This past Canada Day long weekend, the Vernon Lawn Bowling Club was host to its 12th Annual, "Funtastic" Mixed Triples Lawn Bowling Tournament.
Twenty four (24) teams registered for the event, where the proceeds from the Entry Fee was turned back into Prize Money for the Event Winners and Runner's Up.
Although the Interior Clubs were well represented, teams came from as far as the Nanaimo LBC and Christina Lake LBC in order to compete in the event.
There were a number of new bowlers to this event, both Experienced and/or Novices - Colts, who enjoyed the play.
The Round Robin Schedule was prepared by our Tournament Draw Master, Fred Monk.
Following the four Draws played on Friday and the morning Draws on Saturday, the six Flights began to take shape. 
The Semi Finals and Finals began on Saturday afternoon and were completed on Sunday.
Although the temperature was not as sunny and hot as in past years, in fact at times under heavy cloud or rain on occasion, the enthusiasm and spirit of the competitors was not dampened at all.
When not in play, the competitors and guests were host to a Hospitality Reception on Friday evening and a Pizza Party on Saturday evening.
Good times along with excellent food, refreshments and chatter were enjoyed by all throughout the course of the weekend. 
The "off -green" activities also included a Daily Prize Table where a plethora of prizes donated by the local business community and members were handed out to the lucky ticket holders.
Special thanks to Bea Monk for her promotions of these draws.
While passing out thanks, we would be remiss if we did not extend kudos to Ken Adamoski and Brian McHugh for their dedication in preparing the greens.
Thanks also should be extended to Joyce Phillips - Tournament Treasurer; Diana Tonner, Linda Yule and Bob Wright - Tournament Directors; Gary Monk - Club Photographer and of course Co- Committee Chairs - Jack Andersen and his sidekick, Frank Anderson.
The Club Members who volunteered their time in a variety of capacities should also be thanked in addition to the Competitors, Guests and Spectators who traveled from near and far to support and/or participate in this tournament. 
We look forward to hosting this tournament next year, so be sure to check out the Bowls BC (www.bowlsbc.ca), Funtastic (www.funtastic.org) and/or the Vernon Lawn Bowling Club (www.vernonlawnbowlingclub.com) websites for further details as they become available.
