STRATFORD AVON BOWLS
Bowlers Tony Upson, Alec Jacobsen and Keith Zehnder won their section on the number one green at the Hawera Park Optional Triples Tournament last Thursday. Players Kevin Mischefski, Matt Watson and Iain Parker played in the Taranaki Men’s Open Singles at the weekend. Neither player qualified, with Kevin losing two games by two points, Matt losing all three games and Iain winning two games. Last Saturday, the club held an open day for anybody who wanted to give bowls a go, which was a success. This weekend, the club has two teams playing in the Taranaki New Centre Fours Competition. The first team is made up of John Sextus, Cliff Smith, Iain Parker and Brian Pearce, and the second team is made up of Dennis McEwen, Matt Watson, Mike Sherning and Irwin Vandelt. There is no Club Drawn Mixed Championship fours on Sunday and a new date will be arranged. Entries close for the Taranaki Open Mixed Pairs on Sunday November 11 and the Men’s Taranaki Open Fours on November 15. Teams are on the board for the men’s interclub. The Pat Collins Competition starts at 12.30pm on October 29. A round of the Women’s Egmont Shield Competition is on October 30 and Club Day is on October 31.
