Bowen­town Boat Club Thurs­day, Novem­ber 1 — Win­ners: John Fa­gan, Chris Spiers. Run­ners-up: Mark Lane and Deb Mc Gougan . High­est Break: Greg Peter­son. Raf­fle Win­ners: Joe Bridg­man, Eda Pipe and Mark Lane. Waihi Beach Memo­rial RSA The club hosted the TV Bowls Women’s In­ter­club Tour­na­ment — Di­vi­sion 1 last Satur­day. With the sun shin­ing and hardly any wind we had re­ally good con­di­tions to play in. Our team mem­bers were: Sin­gles — Julie Scelly. Pairs — Mau­reen Mur­ray, Betty Thomas. Fours — Diane Paulsen, Dul­cie Smith, Shirley Tay­lor, Marie Martin.

Four teams were en­tered in the tour­na­ment — Thames, Thames Coast, Mer­cury Bay and our­selves. Un­for­tu­nately due to the ill health of the hus­band of one of the Mer­cury Bay play­ers they de­faulted from the tour­na­ment at 8am on the Satur­day morn­ing and all trav­elled back home. As a re­sult of this a de­fault was cre­ated in each round .

There was some great bowls played through­out the day and good sports­man­ship was shown dur­ing the games and what a close com­pe­ti­tion it was right through to the fi­nal and de­cid­ing round.

Thames and Waihi Beach were level on points go­ing into the fi­nal game to be played and what a great chal­lenge our fours team put into that game.

Thames came away with the win and as a re­sult ended up win­ners on the day with 21 points, Waihi Beach R/U with 18 point and Thames Coast third with 15 points. Con­grat­u­la­tions to our team for per­form­ing so well among the best play­ers in the Thames Val­ley. You all played re­ally well and did our Club proud.

A big thank you to Diane Stephens who ran the day so ef­fi­ciently for us and also um­pir­ing for the day.

Thanks also to Terry S, Keith, Erin and Gwenda R for com­ing to help with mark­ing, and to sup­port­ers Ju­dith, Barry, John, Grant Neville, Mar­ion, Devon and Lynn — thank you. Lastly, once again our thanks to Devon and Terry for the way the greens were pre­sented. We had so many good com­ments from the vis­i­tors.
