Buckland Bowling Club held their first Triples tournament of the season on Wednesday 4 October, without any interference from the weather.
Given the enormous volumes of water that the greens had absorbed over the previous three months, the two green-keepers, Allan Brash and Bob Main did a sterling job in providing greens with good pace and reliable draw.
Many favourable comments from players were passed at prize-giving later in the day whilst competitors were enjoying a well-received afternoon tea.
Winners on the day was a team who call themselves “Hunters” made up of Natasha Grimshaw at Skip, Leanne Poulsen at Two with Alan Spacey leading having nobbled four wins and 26 ends.
Second place went to a Pukekohe team of Paul Millar, Chris Walker and Barry Williams who managed three wins and a draw.
Third place was garnered by Raewyn Renall’s team comprised of Peter Ballard and Beni de Boni with three wins and 26 ends.
Best Buckland team was led by Barrie Flatman who was assisted by Martin Wijdeven and Robyn Chavez also with three wins.
A special prize for the day was put up by one of the sponsors for the “best loser” and this was collected by another Buckland team of Bob Main, John Hancy and Dan Colgan. The next triples tournament at Buckland is on Wednesday 1 November.
