The weather gods favoured Matamata’s five-day Combined Clubs Bowling Tournament with great bowls weather.
A number of spectators watched the green throughout the tournament and were treated to some close finals with draw, run and drive shots worthy of finals play.
At the conclusion of play, patron Murray Davis thanked players, spectators and the executive committee for their efforts in making the tournament a success again.
Mr Davis also reminded bowlers that 2012 is going to be the golden jubilee of the tournament.
President Bruce Grice made a point of thanking all clubs that made their greens and facilities available with particular thanks to green keepers for great playing surfaces enjoyed by competitors.
