Palmerston North Bowls Newsletter


IT DOESN’T take long does it. Christmas is almost upon us already
and our Christmas function is on Saturday December 8th. This starts at
6pm with an entry of $10 plus a plate. By the way it is not an empty one.
There will be some nice prizes to be won. It will be 6.30 for the meal and
a band is ready to roll at 7pm. Trevor Harrison and Ian Farmer will be
providing the music so roll along and have an entertaining evening.

RAFFLE donations are to be in by November 22nd, that’s next Thursday.

RESCUE HELICOPTER: Following the success of our tournament
to raise funds for this worthy cause, the rescue helicopter team have
presented us with a stylishly framed picture which will be hung in an
appropriate place.

OUR OPEN MEN’S fours is on Thursday December 13th, starting at
9.30am. Prizes will be mainly hams and so far the entries are good. But
there is still room for more.

INTER-CLUB: Our participants are all enjoying themselves but apart
from the senior men’s team the results haven’t been spectacular. The men
hold a slender lead over arch-rivals Northern so a lot will depend on their
final games beginning next week-end on November 24th.

CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS: Senior men: Pat Horgan and Ross Ellery
victors over Chris Barrett and Steve Toms. Senior women: Joan Ware,
Phyl Davis and Robyn McGregor headed off Ngaire Cowen, Jewel
Griggs and Margaret Humphries.
The senior singles and pairs and the over 65 pairs and women’s 10 years
& under Triples have yet to be completed.
