Over the past two weeks we have seen some great Bowls action as Teams have been traveling throughout the Province competing for the right to represent British Columbia at the 2015 Canadian Championships which will be held in Willowdale, ON on Aug 15-22, 2015.
The North Island played host to both the Women’s and Men’s Fours Provincial Championships. The Women headed to Port Alberni for the weekend as Mary Wright and her team made it through the tough field on their way to a Gold Medal performance over Marlene Cleuntix as they game was finished after the 16th end.
In the Men’s Division at Qualicum Beach, it was a Santana vs Santana in the A final that saw Junior take over the top spot from his Father. After a hard fought game in the Semi-Finals it was the team of Jamie MacGowan that made it through to the 1 game show down between Steven Santana and company. In a great battle right to the final shot Santana took home the Gold Medal and will move on to the Canadian Championships. There were 16 teams that competed for the title on the weekend – numbers moving up and in the right direction.
