We had the Bay Junior Cup being held at the Club on Monday (Labour Day)
Again sponsored by Les Bolton. A big thankyou to Les for his support.

The tournament drew a number of bowlers from many clubs.
It was a 2x4x2 event where winners played winners.
There was only one four winner in the end and that was the Mairangi Bay team of David Payne and Colleen Rice.
Second was Theresa Rogers playing with Roger from St Helier`s: they had 3 wins losing their winners play winners game to David and Colleen.
A big thankyou to Sandra Coombe for running the tournament and to those people who assisted in some way on the day.
