Our Singles Play Downs are now complete and we have worthy Mens and Womens Champions.
In the Ladies Competition Alex Vanden Bos rapped it up with 3 wins while Nancy Nishikawa was the alternate. It was a hard fought series of games over Saturday and Sunday before Alex emerged as the winner. This will be her first time to go to the US Championships. We in the NW Division wish her all the best in Florida.
In the Mens Competition it was a Double Elimination and after everything was settled Andy Klubberud was the winner over Richard Broad. The Competiition in this tournament was fierce and the standard of bowling by all competitors was very high. I think Andy will do the NW proud, after all he and John johnson are the current US Champion Pairs.
This year we enjoyed a great weekend weatherwise, not too hot but nice and sunny.
Thank you to all the markers, scorers, rink rollers and set up persons.
This tournament has been cancelled as there are no entries.

Now is the time to get your Rinks Teams together and enter a great game where each team member delivers 2 bowls per end.

We came, we drank, we laughed, and toasted the history of lawn bowling on Beacon Hill. The weather was great and the music was smooth. Everyone was surprised how much they liked the Pimms Cup cocktails.
Six Mens Pairs and two Womens Pairs contested for the title of club champions bowling eighteen end games on a very hot weekend. When it was all over the Womens Champions were Nancy Nishikawa and Rikki Ricard with Lisa Duffala and Anne Walsh second.
Richard Broad and Larry Holman were the Mens Champions with Chris Davis and John Hollingsworth second.
All in all a great weekend of bowling was enjoyed by all.
