The 2021 Pairs League came to an end on Fri, Aug 27th. We had a total of sixteen teams entered surpassing the fourteen teams entered last year. Our season was only ten games which included three playoff games. After the first game we decided to split the league into an A and B Division (8 in each) in order to get in as many games as possible before the end of Aug. After seven games teams were placed in either the Gold, Silver, Bronze or Ascender group for the playoffs. The Gold group included the top two teams from each division and the Silver group the third and fourth place teams from each and so on. And the winners are………
Final – Playoff
Gold Winners – Rick Nobess and Donna Gobeil
Silver Winners – Bob Van Walleghem and Ken Irvine
Bronze Winners – Mardal Flynn and Lorraine Horton
Ascender Winners – Elaine Jones and Diane MacIver
The runners up in each playoff group were Ian Thompson and Richard Miller (Gold), Rick Knockaert and Joanne Kullman
(Silver), Dennis Ducharme and Larry Jamieson (Bronze), Brenda Frank and David Kerr (Ascender). Also congrats to the teams of Dennis Ducharme/Larry Jamieson and Gerry Chudrick/Gillian McMurchy who all bowled perfect ends this season.
Cash prizes and unique trophies/mementos were given to the winners. Thank you Donna Gobeil for having treats on hand for the prize presentation. A big thank you to Brenda Frank for running the Pairs League this season and making the prizes/mementos memorable.
Special mention: Congratulations to the team of Ian Thompson and Richard Miller for going without a loss (7 games) during the regular round robin.
Thank you to everyone for your participation and patience this season. Hope to see you all out next year. Gerry Chudrick, Convenor
