Congratulations to Tuxedo club members Brenda Frank, Ellen Diehl, Brian Kullman, and Jerome Kirby. Top honours in the Tom Moore Memorial went to Brian and Ellen, while Jerome and Norwood teammate Rick Knockaert prevailed in the Manitoba Open Pairs event. Brenda’s claim to fame this weekend was her TWO tournament “eight-enders”. How cool is that!? Brenda shared this exceptional achievement with her Norwood up-and-comer teammate Barb Heinrichs. Great job Ladies!! N.B. Brenda also had an eight ender this past week with club mate Joanne Kullman bringing Brenda’s weekly tally of eight-enders to 3. Wow!! Many thanks to the dedicated members of Tuxedo for hosting this event, and for their warm hospitality.
This weekend our club will be the host green for, two fun – but competitive bowls events. Bravo to Tuxedo LBC for its continuing support and leadership in in the Manitoba bowls community. The Tom Moore pairs event is an annual event geared towards newcomers – it is strictly for 1st and 2nd year bowlers. Pictured above are Tuxedo members, and last years winners, Brian Kullman and Brenda Frank. Below we see fellow members, and Tom Moore winners Pauline and Michael Gale (Sandra presenting). The other bowls event this weekend is the Open Pairs tournament. Both of these tournaments will be closely contested and you are sure to see some good bowls action. Come and check it out. If you have some free time and care to lend a hand, that is welcome also. The draw times are Friday evening at 6:45, 9:45 Saturday morning and 1:15 Saturday afternoon. Good bowling!
