July 29,2014(ISN) – The weather was hot and some of the playing was too. Greater Victoria Horseshoe Pitching Association (GVHPA) held two tournaments
this weekend. On Saturday was the GVHPA Open and Sunday the Saanich Open.
Some players played both days while others only came to play on one of the days due to work and family commitments
On Hand were some Champions from the past and present, including Lindsay Hodgins who just returned home from capturing her 2ndconsecutive World Jr Girls Championship in Buffalo, NY. Along with her in the kids ranks was 3 time Canadian Peewee Champ Dalton Moffat.
Also returning from not playing for a few years was Carol Ormiston and John Meeres
Colin Nicholson and Tom Moffat were 2 of the players that won both days in the Elders A and Mens A divisions . While the Womens A had two different Champions with Melanie Taylor winning the division on Saturday an Vivian Bodnaruk winning it on Sunday.
