Smith & Rich Win V&D Women’s Pairs
It was a great weekend of bowls at the WVLBC as there were 20 women’s teams that took part in the annual Vancouver & District Women’s Pairs competition. This was a two day event that saw round robin action through the first day – 3 x 14 end games were played with points scored accumulated on differential. The top 8 teams would advance to the finals to a straight knock out form on the Sunday.
It was the Team of Bonnie Smith / Marilyn Rich (North Van) that took home the Gold Medal as they had a great final game as it went to an extra end against Vivian Chan / Zoe Chan (Richmond).
A special thank you to Werner Fladl who ran the tournament all weekend – Werner spent 9 hours each day at the club watching bowls so thanks Werner for all your help as the tournament couldn’t have run without your. Also to Derek Seddon and Don Fraser, the grounds crew who worked hard on the greens and set up. The phrase that was heard around the greens was – “best greens I have played on in the city” always nice to hear.
Congratulations to everyone who entered and hope to see you back at the club shortly.
