WARRINGTON INDOOR BOWLING CLUB

by Cliff and Ruth Porteous

The Warrington Indoor Bowling Club held its Reunion Fours Tournament
in the Waitati Hall on Saturday 11 June. This annual event, which
began in 2007 when the club celebrated its 50th jubilee, is a very
social tournament with a lot of hilarity and good banter going on.
Entries were down a little on previous years but the 10 teams which
entered appeared to be having an enjoyable afternoon.

The teams ranged from players who are still playing to those who had
never played before and those in between -- that is people who have
played for a number of years but are no longer playing. Players came
from our own eastern districts, Dunedin and Taieri. Four games were
played by each team with 10 points for winning a game, 5 points if the
game was drawn, and 1 point for each end won.

The winner of the event was the team skipped by Telford Kinaston from
Dunback with 47 points. Second place was taken by Bob Wright and his
team from Dunedin with 45 points, and in third place was Bob
Crawford's team from Taieri with 44 points.

The club would like to thank all those who participated in the
tournament and those businesses which supported us – Mainland Poultry,
Marlow's Pies, Edinburgh Reality, Waikouaiti Engineering and Auto, and
Astonville Nurseries.

Our club continues to meet in the Warrington Hall each Tuesday evening
from 7.30pm. New members are always welcome and coaching is provided.
