Happy New Year

We hope you have all had a great Christmas and New Year's break, it's all a distant memory for us at the Auckland Bowls office as we ramp-up for the second half of the season and The Trusts New Zealand Open!

 

This weekend we have the first of the year's centre events - The Auckland Men's Singles and the Women's Triples. Our headquarters is Balmoral Bowling Club  and our Convenor is Nancye Hardiman.

 

Please note: Men's Singles,  all section play  begins at 8:30am. There has been a venue change Sections 17-20 was at Pt Chevalier Bowling Club is now at Mt Albert Bowling Club - please check the draw for details. Balmoral Bowling Club will have sandwiches available for purchase for this weekend's event.

 

Please call the Auckland Bowls Infoline on 623 3551 for any changes. Best of luck to all - looks like it's going to be a cracker weekend for bowls.

 


BLK Nationals Wrap

Double world champion Gary Lawson has firmly cemented his status as an icon of New Zealand bowls, teaming with Blackjacks Ali Forsyth, Shannon McIlroy and Eastbourne's Justin Goodwin to claim an unprecedented 13th national title in taking out the Men's National Fours crown in Dunedin.

 

Following on from their successes on day 11, both Forsyth and Lawson were in commanding form throughout the men's fours finale, ably assisted by World Singles champion McIlroy and Goodwin, both superbly laying the foundation from the front and comfortably setting the tone.

 

Earlier this week, McIlroy heaped praise on the dubbed "young brigade"ÂÂÂ emerging through the ranks at this year'ÂÂÂs tournament - and it was the youthful side of Sheldon Bagrie-Howley, Taylor Horn, Seamus Curtin and Jesse Russell that stood waiting for him in the grand final.

 

A strong start saw Bagrie-Howley's men get away to a roaring 8-1 lead, but it was never going to be enough to dampen the belief of Forsyth and his men, who between them boast more than 500 international caps, - experience they clearly drew on as they reverted to a masterclass consistency of draw bowls to eventually take the lead on the 11th end, proving relentless in applying pressure.
