Buckland’s first tournament of the season

The Buckland Bowling Club was well blessed with fine weather for the first tournament of the season last Wednesday, despite some dubious forecasts.
There were 21 teams of triples and an excellent day on both greens was had. Bouquets galore were handed out to the club’s green-keeping team and also to their sponsors, who made such tournaments possible.
These were, Kinetic Electrical, Phil Beston of Barfoot and Thompson and Winger Hyundai. The excellent meat pack prizes were provided by Pak’n’Save and Phil Beston also kindly gave up some very attractive prizes for the well supported raffle.
Winners of the tournament were Don Ramsey, Adrienne Tilyard and Helen Aarts of Pukekohe. Runners up were Martin Wijdeven, Berys Gosche and Dan Colgan of Buckland. Third place Peter Sinclair, Alan Ferguson and San Compston of Waiuku and fourth place Chris Walker, Barry Williams and Len Corney of Pukekohe.

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.
