Far North Kaitaia RSA Bowls Club News Report
The Club last weekend held the “summer” opening day KPH Construction Any Combination Triples with the weather after early rain fined up to be a nice “summer” day albeit a strong wind throughout the day. Before we started President, Lillian introduced the 2019-20 committee Patron Dennis (Marty) Doak, Vice President Mike Reddy, Secretary Reo King-Bennetts, Treasurer Selwyn Hargreaves, Match Convenor Tupu Campbell, Club Coach Jean Huxtable, Committee members Mavis Topia, Joanne Milich, Allan Thom and last but not least Green Keeper Kevin Briscoe. As is traditional on the opening day Lilian asked Joanne (most improved player last season) to put up the 1st Jack and Patron Marty to play the 1st bowl of the season. With the official procedures completed the event got under way with a great entry of 20 teams. The conditions of play for the day was 2 bowl triples and 12 ends.
The results are as follows:  1st Allen Thom, Jill Phillips, Glenis Muir 4 wins, 66 points, 32 ends. 2nd Ken Smith, Trevor & Sue Smith 4,52,29 (Coopers Beach) 3rd Mike Reddy, Greg Taylor, Evelyn Bradley 31/2, 55, 29 4th Edward Hau, Mary Korewha, Brent Colley 3,55,28 (Opononi)5th Jean Huxtable, Freda & Colin May 3, 53, 28
At the close of play President Lillian Wells thanked KPH (represented by Paul Huxtable) for their generous sponsorship which we estimate that they have been sponsoring this for about 20 years. She also thanked the greenkeeper, tournament controllers, raffles sellers, kitchen staff and of course the participants from Church Rd, Coopers Beach, Opononi and the RSA. Our next tournament is the Geard’s Funeral Home Any Combination 2x4x2 pairs on Wednesday 18th September. Please note that the Centre calendar of events for the coming has not been yet been released.
