Undeterred by tornado warnings, the courageous members of the BMI Fours League made their way to the Manitoba’s hallowed bowling grounds at 1212 Dakota for a season ending BBQ. Manitoba bowls stalwart, and BBQ Chef Gord Horton cooked up some great burgers for us and proved that he is quite likely a better BBQ chef than a bowler. Thanks Gordon! Bravo to all the new(ish) bowlers who joined the league this year. It is no easy task going up against many times national champions. The learning curve can be steep, but in the end it’s about rolling bowls, having some laughs, and learning. Well done! Now, on to the all important stuff – the ca$h. The top three teams rec’d cash prizes this year. Congrats to 1st place team Jerome Kirby, Brian Kullman, Gerry Vaderbos, and Phil Clark. Finishing 2nd, and seen above holding thier winnings is, Ed Mulholland, Brenda Frank, Barb Heinrichs, and Donna Gobeil. And well done to Nathan Jacobucci, Gerry Chudrick, Rick Knockaert, and spare – they rec’d 3rd place money. To the members of the league, well done – thanks for games and thanks for the fun. Thanks so very much to the many members who provided great side dishes, and to those helping with set up/clean up. We have the very best people!!
Tuxedo LBC will host this weekends provincial tournaments. The women will contest the fours while the men get down to it as pairs. Draw times are unchanged. Make some time to drop by the club and support your friends, and lawn bowling. See you at the club!
