If you wish to change your programme please let Frank know a.s.a.p.
As the major work on the programme has been completed there will be no need to hold a WoolSale, which is hereby cancelled.
The round of Mixed Pairs to start the third test in the Blind Trans Tasman has gone all Australia's way.
The B1 pairing of David Monk and Louise Henry went down on the last end having lead from the first end. The penultimate end saw New Zealand drop two shots to bring the score to 8-7. In the final end the New Zealanders dropped another two shots and the game to lose 9-8.
The B2 pair of Glenn Hanneman and Keith Bell also struggled against their counterparts, Joy Forster and Ralph Simpson. The final score was 5-14 to the Australians but New Zealand was never really in contention throughout the fourteen ends.
Sue Curran and David Stallard also struggled in their game against Marion Morrison and Christopher Backstrom. New Zealand lead early on but saw their scores fritter away to finished the game at 9-16 down.
James Dunn and Vi Coates had another lesson in bowling this morning losing out to Dennis Wormald and Lynne Seymour 18-7
Havelock North’s Keith Bell has been selected to compete in the Singles (Sue Ashton, Director), and Pairs with Glen Hannaman.
New Zealand will need a concerted effort this afternoon to bring them back into contention in this test.
This event will serve as a trial for the World Blind Bowls to be held in South Africa in 2017.
Results: Blinds Bowls Trans Tasman - featuring Havelock North's Keith Bell and Sue Ashton - and former Bowls NZ President Ann Muir and Sue Curran. Most of these players featured in the recent NZ Championships held at Havelock North.

April, a month to remember for Hawke’s Bay bowlers!
AND, two National titles for BHB women within a week!
BHB Eight years and under women’s representative team started the sweet run of success with a magnificent third equal placing in the National Intercentre after losing narrowly to the eventual winners Canterbury.
Taradale’s Lloyd Fitness contnued the momentum by being runner-up in the singles of the National Club Championships in Hamilton after a stellar unbeaten singles performance in the National 8 years and Under finals in Wellington.
Not to be outdone, Louise Fitness and Jo Hayes (also Taradale) won the National Club Pairs.
Liffy Law qualified in the Singles, and in the Triples with Susan Belcher and Heather Leyland (Havelock North)
Finally, Rotorua Fours winners, Robyn Wallace, Dot Palmer, Ngaire McKinley and Jan Henderson (Omarunui) finished off an impressive season by winning the National Club Fours Championship.
Heartiest congratulations to all these bowlers, and to those others who won the local Centre events that qualified them for the Nationals in Hamilton. Much hard work with countless hours of practise, plus perseverance, grit, composure and determination is behind these successes – but it’s well and truly worth the effort – huh?

Would YOU like to be a Bowls Coach?
BHB Coaching Association Coordinators Lorraine Beaufort and Beryl Skidmore, advise that Bowls NZ’s Coaching Director Kaushik Patel, will hold courses for the following groups on May 21/22/23 - 2016:
The courses will include re-accreditation for existing coaches (cost $30.00 per person), a Foundation Course - for new coaches-$50.00, and a Development Course for top level coaches-$100.00. The Board is keen to attract as many coaches (and potential new coaches) as possible to participate. To assist, BHB will meet 50% of the cost per participant. (We consider each club should look to assist with the balance of the cost).
If you would like to coach in either of the following categories, or if you need to be re-accredited, please contact Lorraine for more information ASAP at Ph.843 7838 – email: Lorraine or Beryl
Re-accreditation - for those whose accreditation has expired (after two years).
Foundation Coach - Foundation coaches support participants enjoying their first experiences in bowls or are young in age and therefore the coaches under-stand their needs. This is an extremely important community for Bowls considering close to 60% of the people who participate in the sport are in this community. The majority of the participants will be Mates in Bowls, Casual Bowls and Secondary School aged children.
Development Coach - Development coaches support a wider range of participants including Club, Interclub, 1-5 year, 8 Year and Under, and Centre bowlers.
