It was a fantastic weekend of Lawn Bowls as the BC Provincial Championships were held to determine this years Champions. This year the format would change back to Round Robin play allowing players to play a few games throughout to get ready for the knockout rounds.

With some great action being played and favourites getting knocked out along the way, it was Gigi Chan in the Women’s event who would beach Rainbow Lung in the finals to take the 2018 Championships.
