The Northland Age - - Sport -

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.
