Obituary Ron Hannam 
Wanaka Bowling Club Life Member

Fondly we remember Ron who passed away in Napier on Sunday 31 October.

Ron held every executive position on the bowling club's committee and represented the region as a Central Otago councillor to the New Zealand Bowls Association. He was an accomplished bowler winning at least 19 Championship Titles and was made a life member of our club in 2004.


He was farewelled in April 2008 and at the same time put up the first bowl at the opening of the new artificial surface at the bowling club.

He is succeeded by Gwen, his wife of 65 years. Gwen was also a bowling stalwart at our club.
