|PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE FOR MAY 2014
The bowling season has been racing along and we have already had two full months of competition at Association level and now the NZ Indoor Bowls National Championships are on our doorstep. I wish all bowlers attending the Nationals all the very best – enjoy your bowls and don’t forget to bring home a trophy or two!
Once again, the Academy and Masters Teams will compete against each other at the Nationals and congratulations goes to Alex Reed and Annelies Baker for being named in the North Island Academy Team and Gordon Hamilton, Don Harris, Barry Clement (Reserve), Lynne Hamilton and Alison Cowan for being named in the Northern Zone Masters Team.
The North Island Team to tour the South Island in August will be announced at the Nationals and I wish all those players with nominations all the best.
At Association level, coaching is underway throughout the Bay at local schools in preparation for the AIMS Games in September at the ASB Arena. My thanks goes to Alison Cowan and Bevan Coleman plus all their volunteers who give up their time each week to assist with the coaching. Don’t forget to mark the dates for the AIMS Games into your diary being the 9th to the 12th of September as we will once again require help with the running of this event.
We are also hosting the North Island Secondary Schools competition on the 14th and 15th of July at the Mount Sports Centre and will need your assistance again.
The Junior Club based in Tauranga at the Boys College this year is humming along and recently a Junior Club was started at the Mount at Club Mount Maunganui which I’m sure we be just as successful as the Tauranga Club.
Talking of Juniors, I congratulate the Tauranga Junior Team who recently travelled to Otorohanga to play in the Ross Arndt Trophy against Waikato, North Taranaki and Taranaki. After a close fought battle, Tauranga snatched the trophy away from Waikato who have had a stronghold of the event over recent years.
Congratulations also to Nash Smith on winning the Tauranga Junior Singles who now goes on to represent Tauranga in the NZ Final being held in Wellington at the end of August.
There are many more success stories out there I’m sure so please make sure you share as any publicity we can get, is good for the sport.
Keep up the good bowling.
