Women make most of three-day event

The Northland Age - - Sport -

A week af­ter com­plet­ing a ma­jor men’s triples event, the Kerik­eri Bowl­ing Club hosted the in­au­gu­ral Bay Fours women’s tour­na­ment.

The three day event, which ran from March 2-4, at­tracted play­ers from Kens­ing­ton, Kamo, Man­gawhai, One Tree Point, Cooper’s Beach, Far North RSA, Kaikohe and the host club.

The three-day tour­na­ment was played on a grass green still in good con­di­tion, the event re­port said. The bowlers needed some stamina as the com­pe­ti­tion con­sisted of three two-hour games on the first and se­cond days, and four 90-minute games on the third day.

“To add to the en­joy­ment of the tour­na­ment a Hawai­ianthemed even­ing was held, with ev­ery­one get­ting into the spirit with colour­ful leis, grass skirts, danc­ing and karaoke with mu­sic pro­vided by the very tal­ented Jo Hood. A great deal of noise and laugh­ter pre­vailed.” The event’s top placeget­ters were Sharon Rud­man, Jill Ste­wart, Jenny Hardie, Pauline Mum­ford (One Tree Point) 1; Jenny Cameron (Kerik­eri), Sandi Ay­erst (Kens­ing­ton), Jan Strong (Kerik­eri), Earani Co­ley (Kaikohe) 2; Dawn King, Tr­ish O’Brien, Sue Hunt, Jenny James (Kerik­eri) 3; and, Jill Phillips, Dorothy Hardy, Ngaire Watts, Liz Wal­ters (Far North RSA).

The top two teams in the con­so­la­tion plate event were Joyce Howett, Su­san Eger­ton, Pat Bourke, Glenys Sandi­lands (Kamo) 1, and Bev Shand, Patty Thorn­ton, Tr­ish Bre­con and Sue Smyth (Cooper’s Beach) 2.

“So many peo­ple worked tire­lessly to get this new tour­na­ment up and run­ning and judg­ing by the re­marks from the de­part­ing play­ers, they will be do­ing it again next year,” the event re­port said.

Praise was re­served for male mem­bers who were in charge of do­mes­tic du­ties.
