Far North (Kaitaia RSA) Bowling Club Closing day.
Despite the showers of rain during the first of 4 games, each of 1 hour 15 minutes, 15 teams of mixed triples from Coopers Beach, Church Road and Kaitaia Combined joined our own players in an enjoyable day of bowls marking the closing of the summer season for the FNRSA Kaitaia Bowling Club.
After thanking the green keeper, caterer, raffle seller and conveners, President Ian Macnee asked Vice President Lillian Wells to present the prizes on behalf of Farmlands who sponsored this tournament. First prize went to the only team to win all 4 games, being Mike Reddy, Greg Taylor and Yvonne Anderson with 4 wins, 24 ends and 44 points, followed by Tupu Campbell, Paul Huxtable and Aroha Kara with 3 wins plus a draw, 21 ends and 39 points Third was Jean Huxtable, Cole and Kiripaka Kara with 3 wins, 24 ends and 50 points It was great to see that three members of these prizewinning teams were school children and this being their first year of playing bowls.
The lucky draw chocolates went to the team of Dave Riddle, Brian Cavey and Shirley Crabtree.
Members were reminded of our Club AGMÂ to be held on Sunday 7th May at 10.30am and our club prize giving on the evening of Saturday May 27th.
Also our weekly Thursday roll ups that were changed to mornings to dodge the heat of the summer weather, return to afternoons as from Thursday 4th May. Names in by 12.30pm. Play starts at 1pm.
