The Cowichan Lawn Bowling Club’s Thursday evening pairs league wrapped up the season with semifinals and finals on Sept. 18.

In the first semifinal, the team of Jim Irvine and Tom Clark got past Maria Ridewood and Marilyn Boechler, while the other semi saw Bill Cleary and Judith Bulley edge out Marvin Thorgeirson and Joan Wilson.

Cleary and Bulley then topped the Irvine and Clark duo in a very close final. Pat Unger presented the championship trophy to the winning team.

Some of the same bowlers also took part in the Invitation Pairs Tournament on Sept. 13. Using the Australian pairs format, the men’s and women’s teams each played several games in their own divisions, with the top women’s team — Ridewood and Phyl Ingram — taking on the winning men’s duo of Cleary and Tom Slemko. Cleary and Slemko prevailed in the final game.

The Closing Jitney, the final event of the lawn bowling season, was played on Sept. 27, with bowlers dressed in traditional black mourning garb to mark their dismay at the end of the year.
