On a very cloudy, almost rainy, day (Sun 26 Sep), we held our closing luncheon and awards day. Due to COVID restrictions, it was not feasible to host a potluck meal as in other years. Instead we had a professionally catered lunch from Vera’s in Kitsilano:
Lots of awards were handed out. See 2021 In-Club Tournament Results for the full list. Our bowler of the year this year was Elaine Rolston. Here she is, receiving her trophy for winning the Women’s Singles tournament:
On Sun 5 Sep, we held the Barbara Williams Mixed Fours Tournament. Congratulations to the winning teams:
- Josephine Lee, Fred Fong, Freeman Watt, Shirley Lai
- Heng Lee, Kelvin Lai, Cary Ip, Gigi Chan
- Paul Lee, James Chen, Clement Law, Lisa Cheung
- Charles Hou, Russell Boyd, Susan Boyd, Cynthia Hou
The tournament was a great success. The weather held up. Many players commented on how much they enjoyed it. Players were also very appreciative of the opportunity to play an interclub tournament again after the COVID hiatus. There were a lot of tight heads; the bowling looked to be at quite a high level. Our own club’s Charles Hou team, but for a game-losing bad end, could have come in 1st place.
