The Far North RSA Bowling Club recently held the double sponsored tournament by Rogers & Rogers and Carters Kaitaia. This tournament (due to be played on Saturday of labour weekend) was cancelled on the Friday as rain was forecasted for the Saturday, but was to be a lovely day on the Sunday. Just as well as the well needed rain did come on the Saturday and we played on the Sunday. Some teams did pull out due to other commitments, however our match convenor was able to fill the tournament on the day. The El Nino wind was certainly playing havoc with the bowls but everyone seemed to take it in their stride as this is going to be norm for the summer bowling season.

After 4 games of 1.15hr and afternoon tea, President Ian Macnee thanked our sponsors and various people who made the day a success. Selwyn Hargreaves (Treasurer for the Club) was asked to present the prizes to the following lucky people:

Marty Doak, Brian Cavey, Evelyn Bradley – 4 wins, 24 ends, 54 points, 1st; Freda May, Don Lilly, Colin May – 4w, 22e, 41p, 2nd; Marge Milich, Moss Hotere, Rob Paine – 4w, 18e, 42p, 3rd; John Hodgson, Winnie Burkhardt, Mavis Topia – 3 ½ w, 19e, 34p, 4th. Also 4 teams were lucky enough to win lucky dip prizes that the sponsors donated.

The next tournaments are on 10th November 2015 being the ‘Skog Bunting’ and on 16th December being the Christmas tournament. Entries to Adele Gardner ph 09 4080638.
