Because the Victoria Lawn Bowling Club is steeped in history, a good part of tournament fun is to have your team’s names added to one of the grand old trophies, many of which date back to the early 1900s. This year’s McKeachie Mixed Triples was made special by the attendance of guests Alex McKeachie Jr., Anne McKeachie and Jane Vaesen—grandchildren of early members Alex & Jeannie McKeachie. See The McKeachie Legacy
Alex Jr. recounted how his father Tom, also a former VLBC member, extended his success and enthusiasm for the game to winning the Walt Disney Masters International Singles Tournament in California (1973). He displayed Tom’s winner’s certificate and other bowling memorabilia.
Members were honoured to have the McKeachie cousins present the prize money and trophy to the top three teams of the 2019 McKeachie Tournament (see more photos Tournament Winners)
A huge thank you goes to everyone who made this final tournament of the year one of the best!
