On Saturday 29th September we celebrated the opening of the club for the new season, while our members and invited guests enjoyed battling it out for the Marsic Cup sponsored by the Marsic Brothers.
The official opening of the season begun with Noel Aitken raising the flag followed by Ken Whetton delivering the jack and Allen Lockie the recent Auckland Bowls Volunteer of the year, delivering the first bowl.
The Marsic Cup commenced shortly after with three rounds of triples and fours being played on a beautiful day here at the club. After a half day on the green and plenty of great bowls being played we found our winners from the progressive format tournament. Congratulations to the winning:
- Skip: Ted Walker
- 2nd: Scott Jolly
- Lead: Sam Hansen
- Anchor: Ken Whetton
We were lucky to have our invited guests Murray Lander – President of Remuera Bowling Club, Tony Stevens – President of Epsom Bowling club, Jessie Edmonds from Epsom and David Seymour join us for the day. As well as our wonderful sponsors Margaret Simpson & Robin McDowall (Raywhite), Taryn Eagle from Ryman Healthcare, Barry Boyden from Craigs Investment Partners and the fantastic Wally Marsic and Ivan Marsic from the Marsic Brothers.
Thank you to everyone who came along to celebrate the new season, and for those that unfortunately couldn’t make it, make sure to check out the live stream feed of the official opening on our Facebook page.
