Bowler in se­lect group of win­ners

Matamata Chronicle - - Sport -

In­door bowler Eric Bell re­ceived his Gold Bar for 10 ti­tles when he teamed up with Rex Mc­nae and won the Mata­mata Sub As­so­ci­a­tion’s open pairs com­pe­ti­tion.

As a mem­ber of the Okauia In­door Bowl­ing Club for more than 30 years, Mr Bell has al­ways been an en­thu­si­as­tic and sup­port­ive mem­ber of the club and to win 10 sub-as­so­ci­a­tion ti­tles is a great ef­fort.

Mr Bell joins an elite few to have won 10 in­door bowls ti­tles.

Dur­ing the year 2000 he earned the Gold Star for five ti­tles and now he has a Gold Bar. It is an out­stand­ing achieve­ment and it was a plea­sure to award Eric with this well-de­served hon­our.

His 10 ti­tles are as fol­lows: open sin­gles 1982; open pairs 1998, 2012; Harold Hill open fours 2004, 2007; cham­pion of cham­pion pairs 2010; cham­pion of cham­pion triples 1999; cham­pion of cham­pion fours 1999, 2000, 2009.
