November was a busy month for our members.

Friday 7th we played our Championship Triples which was the final of our championship events. We had 10 teams playing with three qualifiers.  Peter Gorrie, Joy O’Sullivan and Patrick Cairns;

Tim Jones, Betty Wilmer and June Wilkinson and John Hares, Trish Schultz and Janet Foley. John’s team had the bye with Peter and Tim playing in the semi-final.  Peter’s team came out the winner and went on to play John’s team in the final.  This was a close game with John’s team eventually coming out the winner by 10 points to 7.

On Wednesday 11th four teams (16 players) went to the Tauranga Citizens Club monthly tournament. Unfortunately no one came home with any prizes and a couple of players had their first experience of playing on the upstairs floor at the Club.  This is always an interesting endurance test for first timers.

Friday 13th We had 29 players today.  Winners were Don Gardner and Ngaire Wallace and runners up were Jenny Harpur, Max Hill and Marilyn Steel.  The raffle was won by June Wilkinson.

Friday 20th was closing day and the Pat Mortenson trophy was played for. We had eight teams playing fours and four games.  Two teams had three wins and a loss each but on countback of ends and points the winners were Don Gardner, Jenny Harpur, Marilyn Steel and Noeline Stockman with the runners up team Alex Steel, Ngaire Wallace, June Wilkinson and Ron Bartlett. Raffle winners were Brian Wyatt and Denese Braithwaite.

The annual prize-giving, AGM and Christmas Dinner were held on Sunday 22nd. 

The adjunct committee for 2021 is: President Alex Steel, Secretary Pam Gray, Treasurer Marilyn Steel   Past President Joy O’Sullivan

Committee members: Denese Braithwaite, Ann Costar, Brian Wyatt, Patrick Cairns and Peter Gorrie.

We look forward to seeing all members back for a more settled 2021.

Summer bowls are being played on 4th, 11th and 18th December and 15th, 22nd, and 29th January and 5th February.  Opening Day for the 2021 season 12th February.  All Club members are welcome to join us for a roll up on a Friday at 1.15pm on any of these dates.
