Prem 3 x 4 took on Rangiora at Rangiora on a grey wet morning.
Not the result the team was looking for going down 2 - 1 with Nathans four beating a strong Rangiora side 21 - 19, the other two games ended up losing by 9 shots each, so will be a count back to see who progresses through to the next round.
3 x 4 played Lincoln at home, unfortunately all three team lost, so not a great day for the club.
With heavy rain around lunch time, saw the green closed and no games played in the afternoon.
At this stage Woman's 8 will plat Rangiora on Saturday (morning 25/2) and awaiting confirmation from New Brighton re the Junior 7's.
The following monthly Mixed Sunday Triple tournaments will be held.
Team entries to Murray Jones, Graeme Hooper or Kenny Gray
February 12 - Result
A great & success day which was very well organised by the tournament committee, Kenny Gray, Murray Jones and Graeme Hooper.
A full field of 16 teams turned up with a number from visiting clubs, it was great to see the green being fully utilised.
The tournament consisted of three bowl triples, 3 games of an hour ten.
5 teams ended up with three wins and the winning honours went to the team of Woody, Helen (Mrs Wood) and skipped by Steve Ford.
Thanks to all that organised and helped, especially Marilyn and Jazz in the kitchen and to the days sponsor Robbies Belfast, whose support is greatly appreciated.
Put it in your diaries for the next two events:
To make these events successful we need your support, so get a team together and let the organisers know.
On Sunday 19/2 we had another full field of year 1 and 2 bowlers competing on the Belfast green.
Some tight games held and even one of our own teams were in contention for the title , going in to the last round having 3 wins Gary Southon and Robbie Drew came up against the only other Belfast side consisting of Bruce Hurley and John Kennedy. No love lost between these pairing saw Bruce and John take victory and spoil a perfect result for Gary and Robbie.
The eventual winners and also runners up were teams from Woodend, with four wins a piece. Congratulations to them.
Another very successful tournament ably managed by Murray Jones and his team. A great spread was put on by Marilyn and her helpers, scones for morning tea, cold meat and salad for lunch and sammies and sausages for afternoon tea.
A big thank you to sponsors for the day Aero Bowls (Eric) and Canterbury Christian Funeral Services, without their support we could not hold such events.
Champion of Champion events start early March, so don't leave it until the last week to get games sorted and don't be at risk of being red carded. It is the players responsibility to arrange these games not the match committee.
