The Far North RSA recently held their ‘major’ tournament of the year being Skog Bunting Memorial Open Mixed Triples. The tournament included lunch kindly sponsored by Pak n Save and the prizes sponsored by the Bunting Family. The family have been sponsoring this tournament for 22 years which is a milestone. Raincoats were worn most of the day as drizzle was the order of the day and the sun shone only in the last game of the day. The drizzle was not bad enough to cancel the day, however I am sure ‘Skog’ would have been quite amused that we all persevered and completed the day. Instead of afternoon tea, an enjoyable dessert was had by all. President Ian thanked the sponsors, greenkeeper, kitchen staff (who did a great job serving the lunch etc), match committee and specially to Kath Macnee who sold the raffle tickets. The following prizes were presented to the following lucky winners: –

Steff Hildreth, Moss Hotere, Evelyn Bradley – 3 ½ w, 22e, 44p – 1st; Jean Huxtable, Glenis Muir, Hilton MacCarthey – 3w, 23e, 47p – 2nd; Barry Allison, Sam Allison, Jill Phillips – 3w, 23e, 42p – 3rd; Alan Dow, Alan Bright, Linda Freeman – 3w, 22e, 47p – 4th. Lucky Draw was won by Ray Thorburn, Clive & Barbara Scahill.

The next tournaments are on 16th December and the 30th December, entries to be made to Adele Gardner ph 4080638.
