Although his introduction to lawn bowling was a meer two months ago, David Ice won the JPLBC Novice Tournament from a field of 12 bowlers. Ice was the only player to win all four of his matches under the blue skies of August and the drone of the Blue Angels.

The Novice champion happened upon Jefferson Park while looking for a venue to host a birthday party. One brief lesson later and he, his wife, his sister and his mom were hooked.

There was plenty of competition on the greens, with many matches coming down to the wire.

Vic Valdez came in second and Elizabeth Snyder took third place.
