TRANS-TASMAN INVITATIONAL PAIRS

Saturday 25th, Sunday 26th, Monday 27th October

Hillsboro Bowls held their 15th Annual “Clif shanks Memorial” 

Invitation Pairs over the Labour weekend with a very high standard of bowlers

from Kaitaia down to Christchurch along with Helensville, North Harbour

 and Auckland representatives of the 32 teams participating.

Some teams included current Auckland Representatives both Junior and Senior

 along with past NZ reps.

Over the three days, all entrants contested for the Main Event the 

Flight Plate and the Shoot Out placing.

The Main Event whittled down to 4 pairs with the final was fought out between

 Steve Bicknell & Nick Botica against Ciaran MacElvanna & Jordan King

 and after mighty bowls the later pairing from the Hillsboro Club coming out on top

 Alan Oliver & Barclay Lee along with James Williams & Nick Krajancic 

finished third equal. 

The Flight Final was between 

Neil Fisher & Steve Cox against Grant Goodwin & Chris Lowe 

again the latter pair (last year’s Main Event winners) came out on top

third equal to club pairings of

 Steve Mitchell & Sam Nelson from Hikurangi & Brian Wilson & Lindsay Gilmore composite.

Plate Finals Won by 

Huia Wright & Bob Menzies Ellerslie over Ian Bowick & Bruce Horscroft of Onerahi

 with third equal of
 Harry Davis & Junior Ngavaevae & Patrick & Mike Stanaway,
In the Shoot Out the winners were 
Carl Henshall & Rhys Hakkens with John Mitchell & Kevin Piper being runners up.
Over the three days all games were played in a competitive and friendly manner
with the weather man giving us cool but dry days throughout the period with
 some outstanding bowling witnessed by numerous visitors.
Our thanks go out to all participants.
