Bowls as hot as the weather at Church Rd
The Kaitaia Church Road Bowling Club hosted the Dawn Brokenshire Mixed Triples in scorching early summer conditions on Saturday.
The Northland Plumbers tournament attracted teams from Houhora, Cooper’s Beach, Far North RSA along with the host club to play a format of four games of 1 hour 10 minutes.
A report from the day noted the bowls were as hot as the weather with the scores on some rinks changing as first one bowl would touch the jack only for the next to kiss it.
After two games, all retired to the club house for lunch and a breather, and to grab some raffle tickets, before heading back out on to the green for more intense competition.
At the end of the afternoon, all retired to the clubhouse for afternoon tea, well prepared by Katerina with thanks from all, to find out who had been victorious.
Results were, Marty Doak, Adele Gardner and Glenis Muir 31⁄2, 22, 42, 1; Alan Thom, Jill Philips and Grace Busby 3, 23, 44, 2; Mike Reddy, Steff Hildreth and Greg Taylor 3, 22, 40, 3; Ian MacNee, Robbie Paine and Reo King Bennetts 3, 16, 32.
Organisers thanked everyone who took part.
The next open event at Church Rd will be the Christmas Fare on Thursday, December 6.
