Summer Closing Day Farmland Triples
With Summer having come to an end it was good to see 15 teams of any combination triples play the last tournament for the summer season at the Far North RSA Kaitaia Bowling Club in good weather on Saturday 12 May. The format for the day was 5 games each of 1 hour 10 minutes with one team each game having a bye.
President Lillian Wells welcomed the players which came from all the local clubs and on thanking Farmlands who sponsored this tournament, reminded players that without such sponsors there would be no tournaments.
After all 5 games and afternoon tea Lillian presented the prizes to the following winners:
1st: Paul Huxtable, Brian Cox and Mavis Topia with 5 wins and 25 ends.
2nd: Alan Thom, Dorothy Hardy and Jill Phillips 5 wins, 23 ends.
3rd: Trevor Smith, Reo King-Bennetts and Kath Johnston the only team with 4 wins.
The lucky random drawn chocolates went to Jim McArthur, Glenis Muir and Pat Haines.
Although the summer bowls season has ended the winter series begins. So, to all bowlers we hope to see you out on the greens over the next few months.
Roll Up also carries on each Thursday afternoon. Names in by 12.30 please. Bowls games start at 1pm. This is a good time also for non bowlers to come along and have a try at playing bowls. Who knows, you might grow to love it.
