North Thompson Valley carpet bowlers came home victorious once again from the BC Seniors Games.

This year’s event was held last month in North Vancouver. Three Valley teams went and they finished in the medals in each event.

The teams send a special thanks to Lynn Innes, who stepped up to the plate when there was no one at the Coast willing to organize the carpet bowling event. It went smoothly – at least from the players’ perspective – but there were long hours in a short period of time for Innes.

Winners were:

• In the two’s, Ernie Yungen and Hector Denton brought home the bronze.

• In the three’s, Jack Livingstone, Linda Verhoeven and Sharon March earned silver medals.

Fours winners• In the four’s, the team of Louis Zijderveld, Nina Clearwaters, Donna Smith and Anke Zijderveld earned silver medals.

 

Also at the BC Seniors Games, Clearwater’s Jean Nelson earned two gold and one silver medal in cycling events.
