With 22 teams competing, both grass greens were in use, and the conditions were stunning: accurate grass surface underfoot, clear skies and a gentle breeze.
Add to that the morning tea between games 1 and 2, which was provided by Linda Valentine and Sandra Coombe, it would be hard to have a better day of bowls. Thank you for this welcome addition.
There were prizes awarded on each green, which resulted in 10 of the 22 teams being involved in the winner announcements.
