Waipa visitors win at Kihikihi

Cambridge Bowling Club was well represented  at Kihikihi’s tournament last week – and celebrated a win.

Winter ills, and the weather, cast their shadow on the day. There were several teams that cancelled ,with flu and Covid the primary reasons. The day was fine but miserably cold in the afternoon and a gusty south easterly wind made life difficult on the greens.

The winning Cambridge team – Ian Moore, Scottie Buchanan and Brian Watt.

There were three 4 winners on the day and the best of the 3 winners took fourth place.

First place went to Cambridge, Scottie Buchanan (skip), Brian Watt and Ian Moore.

They won 21 ends and scored 47 points. Second place went Piopio’s Wendy Weinberg (skip), Jocelyn Lutz and Eileen Hayes, scoring on 20 ends to register 40 points and narrowly head off the Kihikihi team of Lyn Comins (skip), Rance Wilson and Di Mandeno who also won 20 ends but scored one less point, 39.

Fourth place featured Cambridge Bowling Club once again with Bob Philpot (skip), Bill James and Bill Edge coming out on top of the three winners with 19 ends won and 33 points scored.

The next tournament at Kihikihi on July 10 will signal the start of the second half of the winter programme for this year.
