The two dozen play­ers con­test­ing the an­nual Galvin Shield open pairs tour­na­ment at the Kaitaia Church Rd Bowl­ing Club re­cently en­joyed calm weather con­di­tions with plenty of cloud cover.

Play­ers in the field of 12 teams tak­ing part in the an­nual Bells Pro­duce tour­na­ment used three bowls each for the four games of one hour, played on a well pre­pared green in a re­laxed en­vi­ron­ment.
