The 2014 Karlberg Tournament

What a wonderful day we all had last Saturday holding the WPLBC championship tournaments. The weather was good, the temperature was great, and the green rolled well. Many people showed up to roll or watch the players.

Ralph Karlberg came, bowled (well) and also handed out the trophies to the winners. He also won the Spyder game as well.

Why do we like Ralph? He is the last of the former members from the WPLBC. He is 93 years old now and still bowls well. He cannot drive now, but his daughter Ann, drives him to our annual events of singles and doubles, named after Ralph. He is a great gentleman and was an officer of the club for 30 years. We did have a special cake with his name on it that day.

We bowled the Singles and also the Novice first.

Donna played Trask in Novice and Geoff played Dave in the singles.

Ralph Karberg Singles, WELL DONE GEOFF!!!!

Both Dave and Geoff bowled well to get to the finals. It was a much anticipated final match to determine the best singles player in the club. Both Dave and Geoff played many opponents to get to the finals.

In the finals Geoff defeated Dave to keep the singles championship in the family. Geoff’s dad Kieth from Cornwall, England has won the singles the last two years. We now have a traveling trophy with winner names on it for the singles champions.

Ron Eccles Novice, WELL DONE DONNA!!!!

After many matches, Donna and Trask emerged as the finals players. Donna was the winner over Trask. Both are new members this year and should be proud of the way they have progressed to reach the finals. Both have shown they are good bowlers. Well done to both of you. Donna is a good example of how hard work and consistent practice can increase your bowling skills to improve.

Ralph Karlberg Doubles., WELL DONE DALE AND KEN!!!!

With the doubles, Dale and Ken won the championship. Ron was to play but had to be in NYC that day. Ken filled in for Ron.

Steve and Trask (Novice) bowled well but in the 13th and 14th end, Dale and Ken bowled better.

Next year, we will have these tourneys and add a woman’s tourney. If you did not play this year, maybe we can sign you up next year.

It was easy to get your matches played in two weeks. It was fun bowling your best in a competition. The finals were great fun for the players and also those who free bowled and then cheered on the tournament players. Everyone sure enjoyed the steaks, salmon and and the rest of the food. There was no leftover cake

We will see you next year.
