Men's Fours Champions

The third in the 'majors trifecta' of V&D events which are older than the V&D.  The V&D Men's Fours is the grand-daddy of all Championships.  Hudson Bay donated a trophy to the then Vancouver Lawn Bowling Association in May 1917 and was awarded to the club champion (what is now the Little Mountain club).  After the 1917 season, the club split into two: the Vancouver LBC and the City LBC (which would eventually be called Granville Park).  City took the trophy with them  Two years later they donated the trophy to the Lower Mainland LBA.  This event has played without interruption ever since and will soon be celebrating its 100th year!  There is a long-standing curse that the team that wons the V&D Men's Fours does not go on to win the Provincial Fours.  At one time this was a surprise, since the V&D Fours was a warm-up for the Provincials.  Now we are in the era of completely open teams allowed in the provincials and so 'doing the double' is much harder.  In recent times, some teams have got close.  The 1998 team took provincial silver, played as Team BC 2 at the Nationals and won silver again.  The 2000 team came in 4th at the provincials.  The 2009 team did win the provincials, but with Dave Baldwin in place of Perry Manns.
