SOBC Nanaimo hosted the Region 6 5-pin Invitational bowling tournament on Sunday January 27. Altogether, 32 teams and 160 bowlers came from locals in Victoria, Cowichan Valley, Nanaimo, Pt. Alberni, Oceanside, Comox Valley, Campbell River and Powell River. A good time was had by all. Thanks to staff at Brechin Lanes, the lane volunteers and Nanaimo’s head coach, Jacky Sheng, for making it a success.
