A Sunday well spent brings a week of content. That’s certainly the case for the Gisborne Bowling Club after it swept the pool in Bowls Gisborne-East Coast’s annual interclub competition on Sunday.

The club won all four divisions of the contest, which was played by five clubs on the greens at Gisborne and Kahutia.

The seven-strong men’s and women’s teams in each division played singles, pairs and fours.

Gisborne’s bowlers who did the club proud were, in Division 1, Jamey Ferris, Steve Goldsbury, John Kanawa, Malcolm Trowell, Bob McIlroy, Dennis Gladding, Ricky Miller, Tanya Harrison, Queenie Takurua, Adrienne Smiler, Carol Hawes, Lorna Reeve, Margot Willock and Lesley McIntosh. Division 1 was played at Gisborne.

In Division 2, Charlie Ure, Arthur Hawes, Bruce Easton, Maurice Taylor, Ropata Ruwhiu, Ron Robertson, Ashli Ferris, Beverly Davy, Kay Goldsbury, Ginny Sherriff, Anne Day, Kym Brown, Karen Higgins and Barbara Gibson hoisted the flag for Gisborne on the Kahutia greens.

Reg Cook Triples

It was a warming sight when 48 players from three clubs turned out for the Kiri Te Kanawa Village-sponsored Reg Cook Triples last Wednesday.

With two wins and a draw from the three games played, Ian Carroll (skip), Ted Mehrtens and Ngawai Turipa got their hands on the memorial trophy.

Carol Hawes (s), Dennis Raggett and Ray Young, with two wins, 14 ends won and a points differential of +8, were second ahead of Lesley McIntosh (s), Bruce Gledhill and Kym Brown. They also had two wins and 14 ends won but a points differential of +5.

In fourth place, Gus McCabe (s), Anne Day and Ron Seabrook won 13 ends in their two wins.

Championship fours

The club’s open fours championships will be played this Saturday. Entries close at 4pm tomorrow.

Coming up

The club’s next tournament is the Ernie Robinson Triples on Wednesday, October 31. Entries close the day before. Entry sheets are up at the three city clubs.

Diane Christie and Ron Seabrook won the Sunshine Brewery-sponsored 2x4x2 mixed pairs.

They were the only team to record four wins. On the way to their victory, they won 24 ends and had a shot differential of +7. It was a hard-won victory, as the shot differential illustrates.

A full green of 16 teams contested this tournament on Saturday. They played four games of 10 ends or 90 minutes.

Runners-up were Ricky Miller and Barbara Gibson from the Gisborne club. They won three games and lost one. They won 25 ends and had a differential of +23.

Jeff and Joy Davis were third, with three wins and 23 ends won.

Peter and Kym Walters won 22 ends, the difference of one end relegating them to the ranks of the also-rans.

The day was remarkable for the rain and cold wind, which made play most uncomfortable, and for the number of drawn games, which showed how evenly matched several of the teams were.

Dawne Abraham and Puna McRoberts drew three games before gaining a win in their fourth. Three further drawn games were played in the third round.

Coming up

October 20, 21: Club Championships, junior fours.

October 27, 28: Centre Rahiwi and JJ Martin, open fours.

November 3, 4: Club championships, open fours.

    Do you support the call for a feasibility study into developing an "inland port" and sending the district's export logs to Napier Port by rail, to get log trucks out of the city and to repurpose the port and harbour area?
