Central victors at the Canoe Tournament

21 Aug 2013

The annual Canoe and Campi tournaments were played this weekend involving 1-5 year players. This event is for all the players that attended the winter coaching workshops throughout Auckland.

This year the Canoe (men) attracted 32 teams playing at Bridge Park and Epsom hosted 24 women’s teams in the Campi tournament.

Central had a battle on their hands to contain a strong challenge to take out the Canoe trophy against a well organised North West combination. The result of the game was decided on the last end.

Central also won the Plate event North West team. Central started slowly and were down for the first part of the game only to come back strongly to take the plate.

The Flight was won by the West Zone winning on an extra end down on the end and South East skip playing a controlled running shot disturbing the shot bowl not far enough to allow West zone to take the title.

Thanks must go to Bridge Park for the use of their greens and facilities, to the players, coaches, officials and club members at the event.

Pakuranga will host the ABCA mixed tournament on Saturday 24th August with a record entry of 42 teams taking part.
