Blockhouse Bay was well represented with twelve teams playing in in the Auckland Pairs. After completion of qualifying, four Men’s teams made it through to Post Section play. Warwick Frederikson & Glenn Rich, Daniel & John Geaney and Nick Thompson & Sean Hird were unfortunately eliminated in the first round. The Peter Hurle & Graham Growcott did win through two rounds before facing off against a well performed Carlton team. A close tussle until near the end when Carlton managed to get six points ahead. The Blockhouse Bay team were unlucky to be kept to scoring one point in the second last end leaving five required to force an extra end. Although our team had bowls around and behind the Jack, the Carlton team covered well and had a very good second shot, leaving Skip Peter no chance of scoring five shots.
