Around the Greens: Club bowls news
A tally of ends won was needed to find the winners of Poverty Bay Bowling Club's open mixed triples championship.
Three of the 10 teams won three of their four games.
Steve Berezowski (skip, Jan Powell and Erin Sutherland received the winners' trophy donated by Kimbra and Peter Walters in 2009.
Runners-up were Dawne Abraham (s), Robyn Arthur and Dusty Miller.
For the first time, the club held championship games over two evenings, starting at 5.30pm and finishing under lights.
On the scheduled second night, play was called off due to cold, wet and windy weather. The championship was completed in great conditions two nights later, with the games shortened to one hour each so they could be completed before 9pm.
Players commented favourably about the possibility of more evening play, especially as it gave school children and working people more opportunity to take part.
