With more than 100 registered members, the Cowichan Lawn Bowling Club is flourishing, larger than it has been in several years.

Those members are keeping very busy, constantly competing in tournaments at home and away.

The first week of August featured the Ladies Triples Tournament at the Juan de Fuca Lawn Bowling Club, where the Cowichan team of Sheila Wethered, Lori Brown and Maria Ridewood finished second out of 13 teams.

On Aug. 12, the Cowichan club hosted the men’s and women’s novice tournament, won by Bruce McIntyre and Debbie Davey, respectively.

The weekend after that saw 32 bowlers compete in the Denny Baker Friendly Fours, won by the team of Davey, Keith Thorpe, Bob Shaw and Tommy Traynor over the foursome led by Gary Robinson. The top two teams were even in points, but the tie was broken by the head-to-head record.
