Visitor’s claim win

Kihikihi Bowling Club started its “Winter Programme” last week with a very successful Presidents’ Birthday tournament.

President Dave Barnett sponsored the event and playing conditions were perfect with a full field of entries and $1000 allocated to the prize pool.

Hillcrest made the trip south and the team of John Ottoway (skip), Larry Fitzpatrick and Ross McLay edged our Frankton Junction with Kihikihi in third.

It was close though with two teams securing four wins and six teams won three each.

Two teams made the trip over from Cambridge Central but were unplaced.

The next tournament is May 22.
