Our tournament season got underway in the traditional manner with an open fours tournament on Victoria Day. On a bright but cool day 14 teams from Windsor to Kingston competed for the Lauria Hyundai trophy. The defending team was Derek McKie, Martin Foxhall, David Llewellyn and Pierre Vanderhout and after two games it looked like they may be on route to retaining their trophy. However they came up against Cary and Mark Lucier (Windsor) and David and Rob Steffen (Oshawa) who played very well to take the trophy. Pete Fisher of Today's Northumberland was on hand to report on the tournament. Click here to read his report There are photos of the winning teams on the photos page

This was the second of our Wednesday night practice sessions and we had a number of potential new bowlers turn up for their first free lesson. Thanks to all those members who turned out to help with the lessons and to Nan Hendren and Helen Beaton for making the arrangements.
Bob Bates, Pat Bylok, Peter Stuart-Sheppard and Bill Arthur travelled to Campbellford for an open pairs. After a delayed start because of rain the tournament was reduced to three ten end games. It was a good day but no success to report as both teams won only one game.

Deja Vu as those who played in Campbellford travelled to Pickering for another tournament. It was a beautiful day but the results were the same with each team winning only one game. Martin Foxhall also played in the tournamnet with friends from Willowdale but guess what... he only won one game as well, but at least he got some prize money for the one game high.

A good end to the week for Bob Bates and Pat Bylok as their luck changed with a win in a mixed pairs in Cosburn Park.
And that was the week that was!
