Mt Albert reign supreme at Auckland Social Bowls Final
14 Apr 2015
A successful day of bowls saw 15 of the 16 registered teams gather at St Heliers Bowling Club to vie for the tournament’s 2 categories on Sunday.
Over 35 supporters, along with the 45 bowlers, totaling over 80 attended the competition. The large number of attendees helped provide an exciting day of four 50 minute games.
Teams from Hillsboro, Mt Albert, Mt Eden, Pt Chevalier and St Heliers all played in the true spirit of competitiveness but fun MIB / Social bowls.
Mt Albert’s ‘Bambinos Day Care’ (Zoran Bartulovich, Neven Grgicevich, George Bonkovich) took out the Section One (with a registered bowler in the team) prize and cup with 4 wins and +27 net points. Second was St Heliers ‘Unders and Overs’ and third being Hillsboro’s ‘Hillsboro’.
Section Two (no registered bowler in team) was won by Mt Albert’s ‘AMP Liquid’ (Gavin Weeks, Alan Capon, Paul Urlovic) with 4 wins and +37 net points. Second place was taken out by St Heliers ‘Pak’n Save White’ and 3rd Mt Albert’s ‘Hey Hey it’s Mt Albert’.
“It was Mt Albert’s day this year” said Bud Little, convener of the final and the St Heliers Business House tournament organiser.
“The weather was kind to us and apart from the non appearance of one team, it was an enjoyable day for both bowlers and the large number of spectators and supporters” he said.
The day ended with a light evening meal, together with ample supplies of congratulatory drinks for all 80 plus attendees.
Thank you to the St Heliers Bowling Club for hosting the day and thanks also to all the participating clubs and teams.
