JULY 21-22, 2010

This two-day, 4-game tournament was a special event for members of the Sun City and Hemet lawn bowls clubs. Day one competition was two 12-end games at Sun City - day two was two 12-end games at Hemet. A $5 entry fee was included in the prize money that was supplemented by a generous donation from Edward Jones financial advisor, Toby D. Mort.

Complete results are provided in the chart below (Sun City members are identified by a yellow square).

The event was unusual in several respects:

Quinnell Scoring
During the game, keep score in the traditional manner. Teams are awarded Quinnell Points at the conclusion of the game as follows:
- 3 Quinnell Points for scoring the most total points
- 1 Quinnell Point for each end won
- 1 1/2 Quinnell Points for ties of total points
Note: the total Quinnell Points scored by both teams for each game is always 15 (12 for the ends won and 3 for the total score)
Carnival-Style Draw
Each player is assigned a position (Lead, Vice, Skip) for the event. New teams are assembled for each game. Individuals are awarded points based on the team's result. The final winners are those with the best records.
2-Bowl Triples
While it's a Triples event, each player will bowl only two bowls.
