FOR THE CURE
SATURDAY & SUNDAY
At Juan de Fuca Lawn Bowls Club
In 2002 the Jubilee Pairs left JDF to go to another Club and with its departure Harry Harrison & Keith Terlson wanted a tournament to replace it. Their goal was to have a tournament that would potentially fill all four greens. Over a beer with Jack McPherson & Gibby Earl the four men came up with the concept of playing a Quaddie. And the Lawn Bowl for the Cure was created. In 2003 the first year of the tournament, 20 teams entered, year #2 the team count was up to 24 and by year #3 their goal was fulfilled with 32 teams, all four greens were filled! Each year since there is a wait list of teams looking for an opening. Most teams are made up of many players, some who may only play one game in the two-day tournament, they play to honour family or friends who have been afflicted with cancer.
Keith left for Parksville soon after the LB4C was created, since then Harry and his wife Beattie have been organizing the tournament together calling on the members of JDF LBC to help. Over this timespan Harry has only bowled 3 times and Beattie twice, they have dedicated their time to organizing and running the tournament. In the past 17 years the LB4C tournament has raised a total of $93,215.61!! THANK YOU EVERYONE.
