Pairs con­test close

Taupo & Turangi Weekender - - News | Police - — Be­van Choat

The an­nual New Year op­tional and open pairs on the Har­courts Taupo¯ Bowl­ing Club greens proved as pop­u­lar and as close as in past years.

In fact the con­test was so close that no team won all four matches and seven fin­ished each with three wins and one with two wins and two drawn matches.

Be­cause of the close­ness of the con­test the match room co-or­di­na­tors took time to closely scru­ti­nise the out­come, hon­ours in the end go­ing to the pop­u­lar Tu¯ rangi com­bi­na­tion (now Taupo¯ mem­bers) of Joe Rowen and Rusty Pet­ter­son. Their three wins net­ted 67 points with the se­cond prize go­ing to Thomas Pope/Dot Pope 62 points, third go­ing to top Bay of Plenty bowler Wendy Green/Mar­lene Jor­dan 61 points, fourth Peter Sare­lius/Edith Hewett 50 points and fifth prize to the Te Awa­mutu pair­ing Sean Quinn/Linda Ben­nett 48 points.

Two other teams were three win­ners, while Ur­shula Croft/Al­lan Hodges notched two wins and two drawn games.

Al­most 50 play­ers in­clud­ing out­side teams from Te Awa­mutu, Re­poroa, Ngongo­taha, Toko­roa, Whakatane, Ara­puni and Waikanae en­tered the con­test. Taupo¯ con­tin­ues to be a pop­u­lar venue for play­ers.

Bowlers are re­minded to care­fully place bowls on the greens at all times.
