Weekly Reminder – 7 December 2021

Weekly Reminder – 7 December 2021

1. BNH NZ Masters 2022 – Just 10 days left to get your entries in before closing date on Friday 17 December 2021 with playing dates 14/18 February 2022. Entry fee $25 per player.

Entries are steady and we would always welcome more. This event is more about participation than straight competition, and it is your chance to play alongside other bowlers in the similar age group. We have one category at the moment that has just one entry (i.e. the Women’s 75+ fours) and we would really like at least one more entry to make a game in this category. Please consider this if you can make up a team.

All entrants must be double vaccinated by the 1 February 2022, and entries must be made through the entry platform on the website.

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, Warkworth, Helensville and Birkenhead. 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.

4. Battle of the Bridge – Well done to the rep teams last Sunday. Conditions were not easy but at least our players were able to get out on the greens and get some competitive bowls in. For the record Auckland were the overall winners 44 games to 40. Well done to the 1-5 year bowlers at Milford where North Harbour won both the men and women sections by the same number of 8 games to 6. Thank you to Milford Bowling Club for hosting that section on the day.

5. Congratulations to Takapuna Bowling Club – who have been nominated as a finalist for the Harbour Sport Community awards for 2021 in the Club of the Year category. The awards night is on Friday 18 February so well done Takapuna and looking for a good result on the night.
