John Barton Memorial Trophy - Village / Club

 

13th July: An extremely enjoyable afternoon was had by everyone who attended, made even better by the afternoon tea that was great with all the home-made goodies brought along.

The Aspiring Village was beaten by the Club (Town) by 104 points to 88, so the Town are the holders of the John Barton Memorial Trophy until next year. - Jim Feehly

 

What's New on our Website?

On the footer of each page (including this one) is a link to Facebook Central Otago Bowls. All the most up to date information is there as it comes to hand. 

On the "Whats On" on the home page I will put a new recommendation of what to watch from our Bowls TV page from time to time. The current link is the men's pairs final which Kevin Hickland (NZ Bowls Commentator) says is a "Must Watch" for bowlers learning the game. https://youtu.be/VZLZqH
