Far North Kaitaia RSA Bowls Club News Report
The Club held the 1st of the new season’s championships starting with the Mixed Pairs. There was a good entry of 13 teams which being an odd number necessitated a bye. The weather forecast was for rain, but this did not eventuate (although there were very strong gusty winds on both days), and we were able to complete the tournament in the allotted time frame of two days. At the end of the 1st day 5 teams remained Mike Reddy & Evelyn Bradley ( 2 lives) and one lifers Barry Allison & Joanne Milich, Cedric Campbell & Marj Milich, Paul & Jean Huxtable, Peter Dorreen & Liz Muru Round 5; Reddy eliminated Allison in a close game 18-15, Huxtable eliminated Campbell in another close game 18-16 and Dorreen a bye.
Round 6; Reddy proved to good for Dorreen winning 18-10, Huxtable had a bye. Round 7; A final/possible final saw a great game bowls with the experienced Huxtable team proving to good for Reddy and forcing another round. Final: Once again great bowls by both teams with the Huxtables the defending champions coming out on top and winning the 2019-20 Championship Mixed Pairs. It was a great effort by Reddy & Bradley who are still J8 players (playing 8 years or less) going through undefeated on 1st day and the playing great bowls in the finals against last year’s champions. Thanks you to all the volunteers who helped make the two days a success, and of course Katarina in the kitchen.
