Cowichan bowler rolls to silver at national championships

Cowichan Lawn Bowling Club member Gord Fall claimed the silver medal in the men's pairs division at the Canadian Lawn Bowling Championships

Cowichan Lawn Bowling Club member Gord Fall and his partner, Hiren Bhartu of Nanaimo, claimed the silver medal in the men’s pairs division at the Canadian Lawn Bowling Championships at the Willowdale LBC in Toronto last month.

Fall and Bhartu earned the right to represent B.C. by winning the gold medal at the B.C. Pairs Championship held at the Juan de Fuca Lawn Bowling Club in July.

They dominated round-robin play at the national championships, winning eight of nine games and out-scoring their opponents a combined 188-125. Their lone defeat came at the hands of Nova Scotia.

Although Fall and Bhartu had soundly beaten Alberta 23-7 in the round robin, they couldn’t repeat that result when the teams met in the gold-medal game, in which Alberta prevailed 24-14.
