Bowls event


You’ve only got this week to reg­is­ter for the pop­u­lar Over 60s Men’s Bowls Tour­na­ment hosted by the Tawa Bowl­ing Club.

Or­gan­iser John Hol­lick said it was a pop­u­lar triples bowls event that had been run­ning ‘‘for as long as I can re­mem­ber’’.

Run on March 6 and 7, en­tries close this week.

‘‘There’s al­ways in­ter­est from out­side the Tawa and Porirua area, quite a few from Kapiti - I had a call from an ex-Tawa mem­ber, who was bring­ing a team along from Levin,’’ Hol­lick said.

‘‘It’s the biggest event that the club has and we al­ways look for­ward to host­ing.

‘‘There’s a nice lunch put on each day and we do our best to make vis­i­tors feel wel­come.’’

About 18 teams had en­tered so far, but Hol­lick ex­pected a late run to swell the num­bers.

There were prizes for the most suc­cess­ful team on each day, as well as one for the over­all win­ners.

Spon­sor­ship was grate­fully ac­cepted from Guardian Fu­neral Home, with the vic­to­ri­ous team tak­ing home the ‘‘Six Feet Un­der Tro­phy’’.

‘‘It’s a fun cou­ple of days, with raf­fles and other things go­ing on.’’

It costs $60 per team to en­ter - for more in­for­ma­tion con­tact John Hol­lick on 232 6053.
