Welcome to the 2016 bowling season.  May you enjoy your bowls and have success in your endeavours be it at club, association or national level.

This year sees the New Zealand Indoor Bowls Championships being held in Tauranga and I encourage you all to participate whether it be in the Open or Over 60’s competitions.  The over 60’s competitions were a new initiative last year and while it was deemed successful, I believe holding this event in Tauranga will see numbers increase significantly.

The Association has gained some new blood within the administration side of the game, however, we are still missing some personnel for key positions within the Association.

Remember, without administrators there is no sport so please consider putting some time back into the game as well as playing.  We must also remember, that if people get burnt out, sometimes they not only give the job away but the sport too and with declining membership numbers we don’t wish this to happen.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Association in recent times.  Keep up the good work as your assistance in any way is always appreciated and may 2016 bring new ideas and enthusiasm at all levels of the game.

Your President,

The Paterson Trophy is the pinnacle of our representative calendar with the top 8 players being selected and playing against 4 other centres in zone 2. The winner of this event goes on to the Welch Trophy in September and play against the other 5 zone winners. Unfortunately no team could topple a very inform Waikato team this year. They did not play the final round of pairs.

At the end of the weekend the final results were:

Waikato - 87 game points, 254 ends, 425 points
Bay of Plenty - 73 game points, 246 ends, 408 points
Tauranga - 71 game points, 247.5 ends, 426 points
Hawkes Bay - 56.5 game points, 219.5 ends, 341 points
Poverty Bay - 42.5 game points, 200 ends, 336 points

Top scorers for Tauranga were Nash Smith with 10 wins and Geoff Coughey with 9.5 wins.
