Bowled over: lawn bowling club sends trophy back to PG

Local club faces off against Prince George and misses first place honours by two points.

The Quesnel &District Lawn Bowling Club attended a tournement in Prince George on Aug. 9, barely missing the chance to bring home the tournament trophy.

Quesnel’s Agnes Adams came a very close second, scoring just two points behind Prince George winner Joy Warner.

Warner won the tournament with the most points scored throughout the day.

Group secretary Angie Kollner said: “We had a wonderful time, but did not come home with the trophy.”

The local lawn bowling club has a longstanding friendly rivalry with Prince George, and the two clubs travel between the cities to vie for the home-tournament trophy.

Until the Aug. 9 competition, Quesnel had held the trophy since its tournament held on July 19, when the local club’s member Robert Stefan came in first place.
