North v South

The annual fixture between the North and South areas of the Kapiti Centre was played today at Central Levin. Club’s nominated players to take part in the event and those chosen by the selector, played in different positions and events during the day. e.g. I skipped a Triples in the morning and played 2 in a different team in the …

Seddon Shield

After many days of sunshine, today turned out to be damp for the playing of the Seddon Shield at our club. It was a fine drizzle really, not enough to puddle the greens, but sufficient to make us all wet by the time we went in for lunch. Where possible, clubs were to send two teams, each made up with …

Final Final

Today was the last chance Susan and I had to play the final of the Mixed Pairs because after tomorrow’s Seddon Shield tournament, the cotula green will be closed for the start of necessary work that is done over the winter period. While the roll-up players did their thing, we played the match against Omeka Feaunati and Liz Gardener, and …

Perhaps Next Year

Our Champion Women’s Four had a good game against Raumati South by all accounts but lost their match 15-17. Our Skip Susan felt that the score didn’t really reflect on how close the game was and considered that they had all played well. Congratulations go to both Central Levin teams which won their games to become this years  Champion of Champions;  the …

A Good Start

A good start today from our Women’s Fours team which, after having a first round bye, won their 2nd round game against RSA. I’ve heard that skip Susan Boxall played a vital last bowl on one end when, prior to delivering her last bowl, the team had only one bowl left on the head. I think that they were 4 …

Bowls is Fun

I watched a bit of the roll-up at the club today and it was obvious that as well as trying to play well, the bowlers were having a lot of fun. On rink 1 were three players, two club members and a college pupil, each doing his best to beat the others but also appreciating the skill each brought to …

Both Out

A sunny day with no wind greeted players for the first day of the Champion of Champion Triples at Otaki. Both our teams missed out on the byes so it was straight into action at 9.00am. Our men’s team were keeping pace with their opponents from Waikanae,  but with the score at 5 all, they dropped a 6, a serious …

Easter Mini Gala

The sun was out but not a lot of players for today’s mini gala. It was a chance to get some fresh air and some good company and sixteen members took the opportunity. The green didn’t please everybody and for some, was (perhaps) the reason that their bowls were not up to their usual standard. Certainly, they could have done …
