Kay Carr (2nd) and Richard Corry (skip), playing with Denise Clarkson (Vogelmorn, 3rd) retained their Hutt Valley Mixed Fours title, this year joined by Ray Martin (lead) who replaced the unavailable Roy Gibb. Once again they had to beat the favourites skipped by Joseph Zino (Vogelmorn) in the last game but looked good throughout a high-quality final winning 8-3. The team will represent Hutt Valley in regional play-offs at the Hutt Bowling Club on July 7th.
This was Kay’s 3rd Mixed Fours title, having won one in North Wellington many years ago, Richard’s 2nd, and Raymond’s 1st.
Earlier in the week Richard was named as a Reserve in the North Island v South Island Academy match to be played at the National Championships in Invercargill next month.
