Far North Kaitaia RSA Bowls Club News Report
The Club recently held a Fundraiser Bowls Day to help cover the cost of a new carpet for our club room. There was an awesome turnout of club bowlers and non bowlers which meant a full green and the weather was kind to us for a great winter’s day of bowls
There were five prizes sponsored by Stonecraft Construction Ltd and a club member.
1st Marty Doak, Shirley Crabtree, Karena Himiona (non bowler) 4 wins, 20 ends, 38 points. 2nd Tupu Campbell with 3 non bowlers Katarina Himiona, Ezrah Hill, Peter Larkin 3, 19, 29. 3rd Brian Cavey, Joanne Milich, Jean Huxtable, Liz Oliver (non bowler). 4th Winnie Burkardt, Audrey Somervell, Margaret McKinley (who is new to Kaitaia and is joining our club) 2 ½ , 23, 24. 5th Marg Milich, Jill Phillips, RSA President Angel Erstich (non bowler)
After the prizegiving the multi raffle of 200 numbers was drawn with Kathy Macnee taking home a wheel barrow full. (I don’t know how many tickets she bought) There were also quick raffle throughout the day. We raised enough to cover the cost of the carpet, what a great response from bowlers and non bowlers to support us in this.
Thanks also to Peter & Paul for their tuatua fritters and BBQ lunch we couldn’t ask for more. Thanks also to Katarina for looking after the multi-raffle from early in the morning and of course a big thanks to Jean who worked tirelessly to make this happen.
The teams were so well balanced this time around and no way you could pick a winner until the end of play. It was great to see the club committee working together with charisma!! What an awesome feeling. Thank you one and all.
Our next open tournament is the Patrons’ (Marty Doak) Any Combination Triples Saturday July 6th Entries to Match Controllers Selwyn Hargreaves 408 3098 and Mike Reddy 408 2556, or from our website www.farnorthrsabowls.co.nz
