The Vancouver Leisure Society's Bowls Tournament a Huge Success

The Vancouver Leisure Society is holding its 4th annual bowls tournament to raise money to help combat Cystic Fibrosis.  This year Granville Park had the privilege of hosting all fours nights of this event.  The event has now spread to four cities across Canada (Ottawa, London, Victoria & Vancouver).  In the  first three years of this event, over $100,000 has been raised for Cystic Fibrosis research.  You can see Fred Lee's coverage of the event in the Province RIGHT HERE.

This event was inspired by Eva Markvoort (pictured below) who had Cystic Fibrosis and was able to take part in the event's first year.  She succumbed to CF in 2009, but her spirit continues to have be the driving force behind such things as finding a cure for CF and organ donation.

Congratulations Tony Boucher

The mainstay of our club, Tony Boucher, was awarded the 2010 Vancouver and District Volunteer of the Year.

Ian Webber gave a brief description of the highlights of Tony's bowls 43 year career which included:

National Team selector for 10 years
National Team manager at the 1989 Mazda Pacific Championships, 1991 Mazda Pacific Championships & 1994 Commonwealth Games
Delegate to the World Indoor Bowls Council 1991-1993
Member of the Commonwealth Games Board for 2 years
Member of the Bowls BC Board for 10 years, including a stint as President
National Silver medalist in 1981 (Men's Fours)
Three time Provincial Silver medalist (1972, 1979, 1997)
1999 Bowls BC Volunteer of the Year
1991 Bowls Canada Award of Excellence

On a personal note, I have to say what most impressed me about Tony Boucher are his warm, open friendliness and his willingness to roll up his sleeves and work.  When Cathie and I first walked into the Granville Park clubhouse at the start of the 1995 season, Tony immediately greeted us and made us feel welcome (which is more than we can say about a few other clubs we've strolled into).  Also, for all the high-level work Tony has done for the Sport of Bowls, you can also find him weeding the gardens down at the club, sweeping the floor - whatever needs to be done.  Thank you Tony for making our Sport of Bowls that much better!
