Fall Gathering 2018
We had a great showing at our Annual Fall Gathering on Friday October 12 and Saturday October 13th. Three games were played on the Friday (Scrabble and Cribbage at the Elk's Hall and 5-pin Bowling at Mad Trappers Alley in Riverdale). On Saturday our members went out to the Canada Games Centre to take part in Pickleball, Carpet Bowling and Floor Shuffleboard.
Here are the results from Saturday's games:
Had 27 players and played 5 games with 8 teams. 7 players came from Tagish, Teslin and Dawson.
2018 Carpet Bowling Gold: Rudy C, Gayle M, Bill and Ron L.
2018 Carpet Bowling Silver: Judy L, Jean W, and Sherry S.
2018 Carpet Bowling Bronze: Paul D, David R, and Les R.
The tournament was a great success. We had 21 players, 10 in the A event and 11 in the B event.
The winners in the A event (tied for 1st) were Brent McLaren and Ken Kiemele. Third was Michel Gelinas. In the B event:1st was Lynne Sofiak, 2nd was Brenda Dion, and third was Lene Neilsen.
