Well done Junior Mens Reps!

Congratulations to Mark Burgess (pictured left in first photo) and James Fairhall (pictured right in second photo) who were in the Wellington Junior Rep team that were very convincing winners of the recent Hexagonal intercentre match in Whanganui. Amber Down also played in the womens team who finished 5th.

Well done Roy, Brad, Rich & Rangi!

Congratulations to Roy Gibb, Bradley Down and Richard Corry for winning the Wellington Catholic Open Triples indoor bowls title last week at the St.Bernard’s School in Brooklyn. The trio knocked over the Vogelmorn team of Maree and Kevin Crighton and Marcus Trlin 9-7 in the final after having also beaten them in section play earlier in the night. This was Richard’s 11th Wellington Catholic title and a 1st title for Roy and Bradley.

The trio then went on to secure the Hutt Valley Interclub B grade title for Victoria along with the services of Neil Reid on Monday night at Naenae. The competition came down to the last night and the last game of singles won by Brad. The team will now play in the Greater Wellington Champ of Champ Interclub next month against the winners of the Upper Hutt and North Wellington competitions.

Well done Chris, Tim, Brad, Mary-Ann, Sarah & Helen!

Congratulations to our two Champion of Champion triples teams who both finished runner-up in their respective Wellington events last weekend. Chris Rintoul, Tim Toomey and Bradley Down lost to the Island Bay team skipped by John Killen and featuring Chris’ Dad Peter 11-18. Mary-Ann Wilson, Sarah Taukamo and Helen King fell to Lisa White’s Naenae team 8-20. Great to see mother and son in the respective finals.

The points earned by the men keeps Victoria ahead of Naenae and Johnsonville in our unofficial count of the race for the Men’s Club of the Year title with two events remaining.

Well done Alf & Lou!
