The 2018 Knut Berg Charity Tournament drew 29 players (1 shared position) for a 12-end afternoon game of bowls. This annual tournament is held to honour member Knut Berg for both past and ongoing contributions to the club, with proceeds going to a charity of choice. See History.
The winning team, based on differential, was George Gibson (skip), Mari Earthy (vice) and Caroline Mitchell (lead).
The event raised $2,100 to go to this year’s recipient Victoria Hospice Society. The amount included the donation/entry fee, raffle proceeds ($55) and bar ($50).
The club would like to thank those who donated prizes for the raffle: Brian Wastenage—red wine, Mari Earthy—neck cooler, Colleen Buckley—club shirt and the VLB Club—beer/white wine, as well as all those who helped run the tournament.
It couldn’t have been a more spectacular day to be out on the green in support of a Society which provides compassionate care for so many.
