Well Done Murray

He nearly did it! Murray, in his last year as a Junior, played in the Junior Champion of Champion Singles on the Central Levin green and reached the semifinals. A very creditable effort and we congratulate him. At our club, ten teams took part in a 2x4x2 gala, played in fine weather and on our great cotula green. The results after …

Their ability to draw accurately was tested, with individuals having …

Reaction

So what do you understand is meant by the word ‘Reaction’??  A look in my dictionary says “A response to a stimulus or former action”. This afternoon gave us a chance to see how people reacted to a stimulus, in this case, the water spraying out from the sprinklers around the cotula green. Not too big a problem one would …

Jack Hammond Shield

When I first joined the Levin Bowling Club, a very active administrator was Jack Hammond who represented the club on the Manawatu Executive. (This was of course when the Levin clubs were part of the Manawatu Centre.) The event that we played in today was devised by Jack, hence the name. It was always a popular well contested event though …

Women’s Championship Fours

Only 6 teams entered this year’s competition and by the end of the qualifying rounds on Saturday,three teams had made it through to post section. On paper, some teams looked much stronger that others but one never knows how things will go in the game of bowls. In Rnd 1 Christine Gardner’s team got off to a slow start against …
