What an exciting weekend of bowls at the St. Mary's Lawn Bowls Club as we hosted the 2023 Provincial Mixed Pairs Championship. Featuring 9 teams from across our LBNS member clubs- there was some great games as teams aimed at representing Nova Scotia at the Canadian Mixed Pairs Championship in September at Wanderers.
Congratulations to Jim and Patti Granville from Wanderers- who went undefeated to win this year’s championship. In the finals, Jim and Patti defeated Terry O’Neil and Kathy Myketyn 17-9 in a hard fought match which completed with an excellent draw to the ditch by Jim in the 16th end of the game to cap off the win. Good luck Jim and Patti in the Canadians this September at Wanderers. We look forward to cheering you on as you go for gold right here at home!
It was a fun day at the Bridgetown Lawn Bowling Club as they hosted a Bowls Canada Boulingrin National Team Evaluation Camp.
