The Northland Age - - Sport -

De­spite wet and cold con­di­tions pre­vail­ing for the Noah Hickey Me­mo­rial at the Oruru Bowl­ing Club ear­lier this month, 12 teams braved the el­e­ments and trooped on.

A re­port from or­gan­is­ers noted the rain was heavy first thing in the morn­ing for the event on Tues­day, Novem­ber 12, re­sult­ing in a late start.

Play­ers even­tu­ally got out on the green, then re­turned in­doors for a hearty meal after two games be­fore car­ry­ing on in the face of the in­clement con­di­tions.

Win­ners were Alan and Lyn Larkin with Den­nis Lat­timer, while run­ners-up were Rowdy, Colin and Rick and third were John M, Barbara and Fae.

It was noted the or­gan­is­ers ap­pre­ci­ated the sup­port on the day fol­low­ing con­certed ef­forts to keep the club on the Far North bowl­ing scene.

“We have spent a lot of time get­ting greens up to scratch and they are look­ing good. Again thank you, bowlers, for your sup­port and your stamina,” said a club or­gan­iser.
