Champions are crowned in Women’s Singles, Pairs, and Fours and Men’s Singles, Pairs and Fours. It is open to all World Bowls affiliate members and it is a great place to see bowls played on a very high level."

Last Saturday the hosted our annual SW Division tournament, the Eileen Morton Invitational in memory of a beloved bowler and friend.

This year we changed up the format, making it two bowl triples, four games and introducing a power play, giving each team a chance to double their points for one end each game. Lunch was graciously provided by Eileen's husband, Jim Morton, with some home-made treats for dessert.

It was great fun bowling with visiting bowlers from Eileen's other club in Santa Barbara, Mackenzie LBC, and members from Southern California like Long Beach Lawn Bowling Club , Beverly Hills Lawn Bowling Club , and Friendly Valley Lawn Bowls Club . Thank you to everyone that spent a while Saturday with us, the full green and competitive play would have made Eileen very happy!

πŸ₯‰ Third place:
Lynda Van Patter, David Sheehan, Linda Love

πŸ₯ˆ Second place:
Giulia Gallo, Tamara Murray, Chris Trenschel

πŸ† First place:
Terry Mar, Alex de La Garza, Kelly Warren
