Dedication!!

Sixteen club members showed real dedication to our game by turning up to play this afternoon in the Mixed Pairs 2x4x2 roll-up. Why dedicated? Surely one just had to be to go out and play bowls in such terrible weather. The background – the Tararuas, were again hidden by a very black sky but the wind coming so strongly from …

Rotary Bowls in Summer!!

Hard to believe that we were to play Rotary today but that is in fact what we did.  There were a few spots of rain but predominately,  it was a very cold gusty westerly wind blowing with a dark overcast sky that we were playing with at our club and the RSA green.
