It's been a soggy start to the season for the Meaford Lawn Bowling Club, but Tuesday, August 1, could not have been more perfect weather for the players at this year's BrokerLink Lawn Bowling Tournament.
“Not only was the weather perfect but so was the wonderful lunch provided by Audrey Dobie and her helpers Alana Warwick and Jeanne Burch,” said organizers.
Chesley, Collingwood, Hanover, Owen Sound, and Walkerton all sent teams to the tournament, but it was the Meaford team of Rae Best, Jim Davis, and Brenda Madill who won this year's event.
The team of Katie Schuknecht, Joanna Hoita, and Joyce Yardley of Chesley took second place. The Walkerton team of Ken Martin, Barb Eaton, and Janet Garland took third place. Fourth place was attained by the Owen Sound team of Mike Gvildys, Linda Stinson, and Tom Garland. Consolation prize was awarded to John Flynn, Marie Mills, and Brenda Long of Owen Sound.
“Thank you to all players who participated and special thanks to BrokerLink for sponsoring this tournament,” said organizers.
Presenting the trophy was Nancy Sharma, Branch Manager of BrokerLink in Meaford.
