Social indoor bowls update

The club has been running social indoor bowls on a Thursday evening, and the current standings are attached below.
The bowls starts at around 6pm each Thursday over the winter months, so even if you are not in the mood to play, it would be great to see members (full and social alike) up at the club.
If anyone is interested in playing just let me know (nairn.macgibbon@hotmail.com)

Closing Day Pairs

Number one green is still open for us to hold a Closing Day Pairs on Saturday.

The format of the pairs competition will be one experienced bowler with one new bowler/social bowler/potential new member.

If you are interested then please let James (0211726079 or tjfairhall at yahoo.co.nz) know and he will add you to the day.
Likely cost will be $5 per player so there is a little something to play for, and we will play from 1pm until 5pm, so meet up at the club at 12.30pm. And obviously stay on afterwards for the Closing Day Celebrations.
Hoping to see many of you this weekend.
Cheers
James aka Tooth

Well done Mark & Tim, Nina & Robyn, Leigh & Kay!

Well done to the Victoria club’s performances during the Wellington Easter 2-4-2 Pairs at the weekend! It became a Victoria benefit with Tim Toomey and Mark Noble taking out the men’s title beating Wilton’s Bruce Miller and Ben King 16-5 in the final; and an all-Victoria final in the women’s event! Robyn Rintoul and Nina De Munnik beat clubmates in the semifinal and final taking out Sarah Taukamo and Helen King 12-11 in the semi and then Leigh Griffin and Kay Carr 14-11 in the final. Robyn lost her first four Wellington finals before she could win a Centre title breaking her duck just last week in the Champ of Champ Triples but when it rains it pours with a second in a week! This was Nina’s 6th title after completing her Gold Star in the Xmas Open Fours.

Tim claimed the 4th Wellington Gold Star of the season for the club with his 5th Wellington title while Mark earned his 13th title – the first for 11 years! The title looked theirs after a decisive five shots in the 11th end. Tim and Mark had earlier beaten Mark Burgess and James Fairhall in the quarterfinal.

With three of the four semifinalists, Victoria has charged back into contention for the women’s Wellington club of the year title. By our unofficial count there are four clubs that could win going into the Champ of Champ pairs weekend! Victoria will likely finish 3rd in the men’s which has already likely been won by Naenae.

Well done Womens Premier Interclub team!

Congratulations to the Women’s Premier Interclub team who won the Wellington competition. Even with Leigh Griffin unavailable due to representative duties, the re-shuffled team still put in a dominant performance winning eight out of nine matches on finals day at Stokes Valley. Johnsonville chased hard and were still a chance going into the final round but were undone with an impressive Helen King beating Kaaren Guilford to pick up her third win of the day in the singles. Sarah Taukamo stepped up to skip the pair with Robyn Rintoul, and the fours won their three including beating Johsonville 26-4 composed of Mary-Ann Wilson, Kay Carr, Nina De Munnik and Nicole Toomey.

The Premier Men’s team finished fourth in a tight competition with only one win separating all four teams at Silverstream. Johnsonville won their first title in many years.
