Berkeley Bowlers Tops in San Jose Winter League

The San Jose Winter League is an annual event, hosted by the San Jose Lawn Bowling Club, that has become a notable feature of the Northern California “off season.” This year the winning teams comprised mainly Berkeley members. First place was taken by Jon Burnowski (BLBC) playing with Greg Fyvie (Santa Cruz). Josh’s younger brothers, Josh and Matt—aged 12 and 9!—and also BLBC members, came in second. Their Dad, Tom, playing with Peter Knopf (Palo Alto) was third, and fourth place was taken by Jim Corr and Nikki Schrager (both BLBC). Altogether 14 teams from clubs around the area competed against each other in a 6-week round robin format in January/February. Congratulations to the winners!

    Here’s a brief video of some of the winners.
