Buckland Bowls results

The first tournament of the new year was the ever popular Pairs Medley held on Wednesday 3 January. However, the chances of any play being possible on the day looked remote after a deluge prior to lunch the previous day (20-25mm). The head green-keeper Allan Brash and his trusty assistant, Bob Main were determined and after much work on the greens, play started on time the following day with a field of 29 teams.
A Buckland team, Mark Wade and Peter Moulden won the competition with four wins, 28 ends and 67 points. A countback had to be undertaken to separate the next two teams as both had identical results of four wins, 25 ends and 57 points. Second place went to Alan Ferguson and Paul Millar who had conceded just one point less than third place getters, Chris Bull and Don Ramsey. Fourth place was awarded to Roger Hodgkinson and Gavin Wesche with three wins, 24 ends and 36 points.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
