Turnout turns pairs into triples

Taupo & Turangi Weekender - - News -

Last Thurs­day’s turnout of bowlers at the Har­court’s Taupo¯ Bowl­ing Club at­tracted such a large num­ber, in­clud­ing new bowlers and vis­i­tors from Aus­tralia, that the reg­u­lar 2x4x2 pairs had to be re­placed by a triples tour­na­ment.

For the first time since last sea­son the grass green was was used but un­for­tu­nately light driz­zle that set in late af­ter­noon re­stricted the ac­tion to one com­plete round.

Skip Tony Cor­bett with ever-im­prov­ing di­rec­tor Jan Hop­kins and de­ter­mined lead David Beck won the first prize after scor­ing a win and 16 points.

Close be­hind for sec­ond prize were con­sis­tent Ray Mayal, Aus­tralian player John Cosimo and Eleanor Ush­er­wood with 15 points.

Third prize, as the best of the non-win­ners, went to the skilled Liz Wit­ton/Dot Pope and Di Hart­ley with nine points, Rusty Pet­tersen/Peter Sare­lius/John Math­e­son won the fourth prize col­lect­ing six points. Alex Hart­ley/Vivi­enne Hutchi­son/San­dra Bur­rows won the drawn prize.

The turnout of play­ers au­gurs well for the up­com­ing open tour­na­ments later this month with al­ready lo­cal as well as a num­ber of en­tries from out­side of Taupo¯.

Also ahead is the pub­lic open day on Oc­to­ber 27.
