PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Welcome to the 2015 bowling season and my sixth year as your President.  Although membership has dropped during my tenure, I believe our Association is still healthy with many positive happenings. We must admit though that indoor bowls is on the decline, many clubs have seen their membership decrease, and it is for this reason that all members need to help to try and change this decline by recruiting a new player each, but of course this is easier said than done.

During the season, we will be hosting the Trans Tasman Test between New Zealand and Australia in May, the North Island Secondary Schools Indoor Bowls Championships in July, the touring South Island Team in August and the NZCT AIMS Games in September.  A busy year ahead but I’m sure that if we all join forces, the events will be run smoothly and efficiency as we have done in the past.

I am very pleased to say that all positions on our Association were filled at the AGM in December and I believe we have a very competent team to administer the sport on your behalf for the year but we still need your support.

Good luck for the 2015 bowling season and don’t forget to let us know of your achievements during the year as we start to utilise our website and facebook pages more and more with news and information.

Your President,
Fiona

LANCASTER TROPHY
'A' Rep Match between:  Tauranga, Thames Valley, Auckland, North Harbour, Counties and Waikato
Date: Saturday 27th and Sundy 28th June
Venue:  Western Hall, New Lynn
Time:  9.00am Start both days


Tauranga has won back the Lancaster Trophy in a close finish with Waikato.

The weekend started well with our Tauranga team playing well and leading from the front over all of the other centres being Auckland, Waikato, Counties, Thames Valley and North Harbour. This built the teams confidents and by the end on day one we were in a good position to win. Securing each centre win continued to be the theme with just the Waikato match still alive. With a 20-10 lead through half of the scheduled games played Tauranga hand one hand on the trophy. After a round of pairs and singles that hand became finger tips as Waikato secured 13 points to 3 to level the scores at 23-23 with 4 singles and a fours to play. A Fantastic final singles round winning 2 1/2 games got us to 28 points which was enough to secure a drawn match with Waikato (Waikato won the last fours game).
A count back on games won had Tauranga winning 185 games to Waikato's 173 which returned the Lancaster trophy to Tauranga for the 3rd time in 4 years.

It was a great all round team win, with Mike Phipps and Geoff Coughey leading the way with 12 wins from the 15 games followed closely by Wayne Baker and Lorraine Phipps with 11.5
