Reg Cook Memorial decided


Country music, 48 players and three bowls each made for a great afternoon of bowls on the Gisborne Bowling Club greens last week.

The trophy at stake was the Reg Cook Memorial in a tournament sponsored by Kiri Te Kanawa Retirement Village.

Members from other clubs in the district, along with a good turnout from the host club, made it a very competitive afternoon of triples.

The team of Mark Bain (skip), Diane Oates and Karen Pinn were too good for the rest of the large field, winning all three games with a plus-27 differential.

If Maurice Taylor doesn't win the raffle each week, he usually manages a place in whatever competition is on. He, Rex Richardson and lead Libby Clay came away with three wins and 19 points for a close second.

Third, with three wins and seven points was the all-girl team of Carol Hawes (skip), Marilyn Knowles and Ann Ward.

Fourth with two wins and a plus-14 differential were the team of Bob McIlroy, Mike Namana and Joy McFarlane.

Kiri Te Kanawa Retirement Village sales adviser Jane Smith presented the prizes.
