TSAWWASSEN SUN FESTIVAL Saturday August 5th:

Each year TLBC hosts the Tsawwassen Sun Festival Mixed Triples Tournament and this year we were thrilled to host their 5th annual tournament on our new artificial green and in the new Winskill Park Field House.

Sixteen teams of 48 men and women from Ladner, Richmond, White Rock, New Westminster, Maple Ridge and Tsawwassen participated.  Each team played 4 games.   Richmond Lawn Bowling Club, captained by Paul Choi, won the event and received the first-place prize money and the coveted Sunfest Trophy.  Tsawwassen Lawn Bowling Club team comprised of Ralph Walker, Laurie Fredricksen and Betty Cooper won prize money by finishing fourth.

 

DELTA SERVICE CLUBS LAWN BOWLING TOURNAMENT Sunday August 16th.

TLBC also hosted a Sun Festival fun mini-tournament for South Delta service clubs; Lions, Rotary, TOOB, Ladner Legion, Masons and SunFest volunteers.  Each Club sent one or two triples’ teams to play in the tournament.  Each team played two (or three) four end games.  Before the games started, TLBC volunteers gave them a very short lesson on how to deliver the jack, the bowls and supervised the games, scoring etc.  Ladner Legion won the event and all the teams vowed to return next year to try to claim the trophy.

Then all of the competitors and the TLBC volunteers were invited to the TOOB food tent next to the Aquatic Center to receive a free meal and a free beverage ticket.  It was a fun event where participants got the opportunity to socialize with members of the Delta community
