The Northland Age

Annual tournament happy affair


Far North RSA Bowling club held its Skog Bunting Family and Northland Auctions Tourney on November 5.

The format of the day was four games of 10 ends 3 bowl triples.

Weather for the day was absolutely beautiful and, with 15 teams entered, everybody seemed to be in a funny mood so laughter was not lacking, happy faces everywhere, even the non-placegette­rs were smiling, said Adele Gardner, the club’s spokeswoma­n.

The whole day was enjoyed by everyone but towards the end there were a few sore bodies.
