After the torrential rain of Queens birthday Saturday and despite the bad weather forecast for the next day, the weather was warm and the sun shone on 16 teams triples bowlers including visiting bowlers from Church Road, Coopers Beach and Houhora clubs to play the Patrons open tournament for 2018 sponsored by Marty Doak at the Kaitaia RSA Bowls Club on Sunday 3rd June.
Four games each of one hour five minutes were played before Patron Marty Doak who has been a member of the Kaitaia RSA Bowls Club for more than 40 years and during that time has won more than 40 Club Titles, presented the prizes to the following:
The winning team was Kevin Briscoe, Mike Reddy and Evelyn Bradley with 4 wins, 32 ends and 75 points.
2nd. Cedric Campbell, Tupu Campbell and Gabriella Campbell ( with substitute of Ezra Hill for last game) 4 wins, 26 ends and 49 points.
3rd. Marty Doak, Bruce Panther, and Glenis Muir 3 wins 32 ends and 62 points.
The lucky loosers chocolates drawn at random went to Liz Walters, Trish Breckon and Doug Robb.
