Thank you to the clubs who have responded with their club information to assist BNH to host this major tournament. We have received replies from Browns Bay, Milford, Takapuna, Mairangi Bay, Orewa and Warkworth. If your club has not replied yet would you please do so as we need the assistance of your club as a venue for this tournament on the days your greens are available.

5. Resurgence Support Payments – If your club has not applied for this financial support from the Government then you are missing out. It is not difficult to apply and if your club needs any assistance, our treasurer, Raewyn Thomas, is only too willing to help.

The last payment, available from 12 November, has doubled the amount to $3,000 plus $800 per FTE, and it is expected a further payment will become available from 26 November.

Contact our treasurer, Raewyn Thomas, on 027 499 8697 if you need any assistance.

6. Battle of the Bridge – This annual representative fixture between Auckland and North Harbour will be held on Sunday 5 December. The open rep teams will be playing at Blockhouse Bay and Papatoetoe and the 1-5 years are being hosted by North Harbour at Milford Bowling Club. The competition involves teams playing fours, pairs and singles in that order and for the singles we need to provide 16 markers at Milford. The singles round of games are scheduled to commence at 2.45pm. If anyone can assist with marking it would be appreciated and you could leave your name with Maureen Taylor on 021 040 9899.
