Asheville – August 27-28, 2022

“Pines to the Mountains” Inter-club Tournament

Twenty-four bowlers participated in the 2nd meeting in 2022 of the “Pines to the Mountains“ inter-club event.  The format calls for two matches a year, with Asheville bowlers coming to Pinehurst each Spring and members of the Pinehurst Lawn Bowls Club traveling to Asheville each Summer. The event includes a weekend of bowls and fellowship and it has proven to be a wonderful opportunity to not only have a great bowls competition, but to form wonderful relationships among members of the two clubs.

The prize for the “Pines to the Mountains” competition is the beautiful Tucker-Sarbey trophy, named in honor of long-time members of the two clubs, Jackie and George Tucker from Pinehurst and David Sarbey from Asheville.  The “fast” True-Draw artificial surface in Asheville proved difficult for the Pinehurst bowlers to adapt to – quite a challenge.  After 2 meetings of the clubs; each club holds one victory.  Asheville will travel to Pinehurst in the Spring of 2023 to defend the trophy.
