Mixed Triples is cancelled

The Match Committee has made the call to cancel today’s planned mixed triples….
There are ongoing showers up at the club at the moment and the rain radar does not look very nice.
Good luck for the Bowls3Five teams starting at 6.30pm on Monday night at the club.
(and well done Otago!!)

Island Bay v Victoria

The club ventured south to Island Bay for our annual friendly fixture yesterday. Island Bay put on a good green, tough competition, and a great feed at the end of the afternoon. Results were close with Victoria winning the first and second rounds 3 matches to 2 but were only able to fend off a resurgent Island Bay 2 matches to 3 on the last bowl to defend the trophy 8 matches to 7 overall.

Thursday night social indoor bowls

Hi everyone,

The first round of social indoor bowls was such fun, we are running it again, and it would be really great to have some of our regular outdoor bowlers come along and enjoy the fun.

The format is Pairs, with only one full bowls member per team.

This is a great opportunity to introduce friends/family/workmates to the club in a fun, social way.

The bar is open, nibbles are provided and all-in-all it is a lot of fun.

VBC_Indoor Bowls Poster 2018 This flyer has all the details:

  • Thursdays from 6pm (19th July, 26th July, 2nd August, 9th August, 16th August)
  • Teams of 2 (i.e. pairs)
  • 4 weeks of section play and a finals night (5 nights in total)
  • $20 entry fee per team covers you for the 5 weeks
  • Weekly prizes (from our great friends at Preston’s Master Butchers)
  • Limited to the first 15 teams to register

Note this time around, as well as restricting teams to only include one full bowls member, a registered indoor bowler such as  Richard Corry  must lead rather than skip (sorry Richard)….
