Tournament - Sunday 23rd July

What a lovely day we had for our tournament on Sunday. The company was great, the food was wonderful and the challenge of different hands was stimulating if not frustrating at times.  

We had winners, winners & more winners!
Special hand winners, session winners, overall tournament winners and raffle winners.   

The top four winners today were:
1st with 46 points  - Sally Hitchcock
2nd with 44 points - Daphne Inglis
3rd with 44 points - Joyce Deeming
4th with 44 points - Donna Bailey
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please note the last 3 places had the same points but the judges then take away fishing points to determine the winner.

Last weekend, 5th and 6th August the Whangamata Club Indoor Bowls Adjunct held their Whangamata Real Estate pairs and fours tournament.

Entries came from Taupo to as far north as Glen Eden in Auckland. The pairs were played on Saturday. From a field of sixty-four, thirty-one teams qualified for post-section play.

Coming out on top the winners were:
1st: Bob Lord and Roddy Anderson from the Hamilton Working Mens Club
2nd: Brian MacDonald and Karen Watson from Pukekohe Cosmopolitan Club
3rd Equal: Janet Bhana and Ben Tomiczek from Glen Eden RSA and Ray Marshall and Norm Crawford from Te Kauwhata Indoor Bowling Club

The fours tournament on Sunday was run on a slightly different format with all teams playing five games earning two points for a win and one for a draw. If needed, the number of ends won and the score of the game is used to determine the winner.

Thirty-four teams entered the tournament with only one team, from Whangamata, winning all five of their games with 10 points.

The winning team was Peg Jones, Alex Steel, Joy O’Sullivan and John Aislabie. Alex and John filled in at the last minute for ill players. We believe this is the first time a Whangamata team has won our own fours tournament.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Runners up were from New Lynn RSA who had 4.5 wins with 9 points and 29 ends Colin Robertson, Allan Horner, Ren Sadgrove and Gerard Hall; and 3rd was Gordon Laing, Warren Anderson, Carol Lovell, and Trish Laing from Otorohanga Club with 4.5 wins and 9 points as well but had only 26 ends.

We congratulate all of our winners but especially our own players who came out on top on Sunday.

The Whangamata Club Poker Adjunct (WCPA) had 12 members plus partners attend the Clubs NZ North Island Poker Championships at Club Hastings over the King's Birthday Weekend.

Supported by her husband Chris, Karyn Jones secured 2nd place in the Main Event, falling just short of her maiden title to Nathan Huata of Club Hastings. This follows up her fine form after just winning the WCPA Domestic League for the first time ever. Another fine performance was had by Steve Latta who had a workmanlike performance winning the Consolidation event.

The team turned up the charm offensive with our unique group of people who have the right attitude and are always ready to sing a few songs for our mates to help breathe life into any gathering.

The Poker Adjunct would like to thank the Whangamata Club Executive and members for all of your support and kind words. We are proud to be part of this Club and community.

 

- Phil Harriss, Eddie and Jilly Witehira
