Lynn Coules & Ed Logan Win BC Indoor Mixed Pairs
It was a great weekend of Bowls at the Pacific Indoor Bowls Club as 17 Teams participated in the first annual BC Indoor Mixed Pairs Championships. West Van LBC member Lynn Coules and Ed Logan played brilliant bowls all weekend and would make it over the line as the Champions.
By winning The Mixed Indoor Pairs Championship, Coules & Logan will head to Wales to represent British Columbia, Canada at the Word Indoor Bowls Council (WIBC) Championships. The Championships will be held this year in Swansea, Wales UK from April 11-14, 2017. http://www.swanseaindoorbowls.co.uk/
This year Bowls BC has introduced 4 new tournaments to the indoor schedule, Triples, Pairs, Mixed Pairs and a V&D/Interior Singles Qualifier. These events are to introduce more competitive competition to the Indoor Season and allow for members to head out on the carpet for some great action.
Lynn Coules and partner Ed Logan made quick work of their opponents in the Finals as they played against experienced James MacGowan & Vanessa Sui, cruising to a lop sided first set win and finishing it off in a close second set. Down four after 7 ends they would score a 4 to tie the game. Lynn would make a stunning draw with her last bowl to seal the deal in the final end to secure the Gold Medal.
Congratulations to all who participated in the Championships. A huge thank you to George Cubiss and to his Team of Umpires who officiated the weekend. Also to the PIBC for hosting another great Championship.
