TWENTY-FOUR teams entered the Fitzherbert Rowe-sponsored open triples (any gender) at the club on Sunday, October 9, with everyone enjoying the fast, true playing surface and fine conditions.
Local combination of Brian Little, with the Henn bros, Brian and Ron, was the only unbeaten four-winner on the day, and deservedly took away first prize.
Terrace End triple of Fran Frith, Bev Budd and Ron Frith snuck into second with three wins and 26 ends, while PN’s Eric Watson, Lindsay Toms and Graeme Cooley finished one end back in third with three wins and 25 ends.
Other visiting teams included Ian Mahoney’s lineup from Levin Central, as well as strong representation from Northern and Johnston Park.
The club thanks Fitzherbert Rowe for its continuing sponsorship and to all the players who contributed to an enjoyable day.
