Far North RSA Bowling Club News Report
The Club held the annual RSA Elimination Triples. The winners of this event will represent the Far North RSA at the Nationals to be held at Mt Maunganui Tauranga
The format was 4 rounds a day of 16 ends or 1hr 45mins. Nine teams entered which was reduced to four to go into the 2nd day’s play being Peter Dorreen, Paul & Jean Huxtable (2 lives) v Barry Allison, Allan Thom, Trevor Smith and 1 lifers Selwyn Hargreaves, Bruce (Beaky) Panther, Rob Paine V Mike Reddy, Alan Bright, Greg Taylor. In a close fought match Dorreen eliminated Allison and in the other match Hargreaves got a way to a good start up 13-2 after 8 ends but Reddy came back to be 9-13 at the penultimate end but Hargreaves prevailed to take the match and go into the final/possible final against Dorreen. Although Hargreaves opened the scoring in the 1st two ends Dorreen’s team proved too strong and went on to take out the title. We wish the team well at Nationals to be held in March. Thank you Katarina and Club ladies who looked after the kitchen, Mike & Selwyn Match Controllers and Ian & Mike for preparing the green.
