24 teams played 2 games on the last day of March.
This event has been played for over 35years, traditionally a Women’s event the criteria under Equal Opportunity, now is for a Woman skip and it was worth noting that an all WOMEN’S Team from Ashburton skipped by Liz Kortum were the overall winners on the day.
Audrey Nelson (Murrumbeena) and Liz Kortum’s team both won 12 of the 28 ends played by each team, by a single shot and 7 teams won both games. Of the 336 ends played on the day 164 ones, 46 threes, 22 fours, 15 fives and just 1 six were achieved.
These events are not possible without the great VOLUNTEERING ethic of the LAWN BOWLS community from green preparation, bar staff and the mighty efforts of the members who provide the catering on the day.
The bowlers playing were non- employed, no appointments, childminding or caring responsibilities on that particular Friday,
there were 24 women skips, and more women than men playing on the day
