The Savoy Lanes senior women’s team consisting of Lee McNeil, Effie Rains and Pat Alexander competed in the Club 55+ Triples Nationals bowling competition in Welland, Ontario and came home with the bronze medal.

The group played four games on the Monday, six games on the Tuesday and then needed to play a seventh game to break a tie with southern Ontario.

Alberta took the gold, southern Ontario won the silver and BC took the bronze.

The BC men’s team from Maple Ridge also came home with a bronze medal.

It was a great competition at a bowling alley consisting of 36 lanes and the players were treated to a great buffet and dance that evening.

This competition is sponsored and funded by BC Bowl and Canada Bowl which included airfare, hotel accommodation and all the ground transportation.

It also included a tour to Niagara Falls.

It was a good time and an opportunity to meet a lot of great people. Join them in September at Savoy Lanes and enjoy some exercise and fun.
