A total of 20 entries competed for $1,800 in the Vernon Lawn Bowling Club’s 20th Annual Mixed Triples Lawn Bowling Tournament held over the Funtastic-Canada Day long weekend.

“It was a wonderful weekend and the weather co-operated for us as well,” said tourney director Frank Anderson. “This is always a fun event and gives those in attendance the opportunity to socialize with bowlers they may not have seen in a while, in addition to meeting new friends. On Canada Day, it has become a tradition to dress in our national colours. A simply stunning sight to see on our greens.

“As of Sunday, July 1 was also the closing day of the tournament, along with the celebration of Canada Day with related activities in Polson Park, we had a lot of interest expressed by those passing by our facility.”
