NZ Open Success for Club Bowlers

Esther Eu and Helen Murray teamed up with Sheila Putu, a new bowler from St Heliers.  After some excellent bowling over the week the team won through to the NZ Open Triples final.  This was a match up against the very experienced team of Anne Bateman, Karen Hema and Linda Ralph.  Both teams were producing excellent bowls;  after 7 ends our local team was down 4-10 after having dropped a 5.  By end 12 the score was even at 13 all.  After completion of end 17 the score was still even at 16 all.   On the final end the opposition lead drew a close shot and with one bowl left and two down on the head Esther just missed drawing shot for the game.  An excellent effort by the local team who was well supported by a vocal group of local club members.
Two club Women’s Pairs teams of Margaret Aldous and Marion Vague and Corinne Pritchard and Colleen Pert reached the quarter finals of the NZ Open Women’s Pairs.  A great result by our local bowlers.
