"There's more to us than just bowls"
For the Social/Casual, we have the following opportunities for you to take to the greens:

This is an event designed for our Social Members - Played over 3 Sundays (Sept/Oct/Nov), 2 quick-fire games over 5 ends, with a power play (double points). A fun afternoon for the whole family - with entertainment for the children. A fun way to meet your local community - teams of 3 - ideally from the same street!

Battle of the Streets
And the winning Street was... HUMIRIRi ST HAWAIIANS!!!
Congratulations to the inaugural winners of the Battle of the Street - Michael Campbell, Paul Borich, Brent Newson, Nikki Newson and Robyn Campbell. Not only did they look great in their colourful Hawaiian shirts, but they played great bowls too. From day one, they stood out as one of the teams to beat.. and at the end of day two, they remained the only unbeaten team with 5 wins.
Not far behind in 2nd and 3rd place was Bungalow Barge Arse and The Neighbours on 4 wins each.
The Humiriri Street Hawaiians were full of praise for the club. They said the club had struck the right balance with the event. The pirate entertainers made it easy for the many parents to enjoy the bowls. Regulars at our Wednesday Night Social League, they enjoyed meeting a lot of new faces and were hopeful some would join the next Wednesday night league.
Wednesday Night BOWLS3FIVE Social League
Lockdowns and weather may have shortened the league, but it was great having everyone on the greens for the last 2 weeks! And how nice is it to have The Scullery up and going!
Big thank you to Bowls NZ and Burger Fuel Pt Chev for providing a lot of giveaways! And of course to Harry Davis, Colin Williams and their band of helpers.
See you all in October!
BOWLS3FIVE Social League
OCT 2020 Results
This year the event changed to the popular 'as seen on tv' Bowls3Five format of the game. Instead of one game of 10 ends, 2 sets of 5 ends is played, and a 'tie break' end is played if the teams win one set each. Each team also had a power play end to use when they wanted - which meant, if the end was won, they get double points. This kept the game interesting right until the end.
Congratulations to our winners Blazin Bowls, runners up PC Invincibles and third place Too Much Green!
See you all in February!
Thank you to Harry Davis and Colin Williams for running the event and their band of helpers.
